Owner description: In the historic district, the Abra Dock in Bur Dubai, is an affordable 10-minute traditonal wooden boat ride -- really a taxi. Take the abra from the Bastakiya side, look around the textile souk and the art galleries, and end in the gold souk. Used by 15-20 million passengers each year, the Abra Dock in Bur Dubai is a memorable cruise in the water.

Don't let people coerce you into buying stuff - it's quite difficult to resist. Watch little kids on the abras, they are very ad hoc - no proper seating, & definitely no safety measures.
