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.

one dirham abra rides sound cheap but are a great way to experience the local culture....go from bur dubai to the old souq in one of these and enjoy the breeze as you sail through slowly

A great way, if short (5 mins) to cross the Creek and get a good view without spending money on a Dhow cruise. At only 1 Dhr you won't get cheaper.

.....traversing the Creek in one of these cheap and charming vessels.

Away from the maddening plastic activities that largely make up a Dubai holiday.....

Loved the atmosphere here and the boatmen are very good at helping you in and out the abra They casually skim across the creek dodging the other water traffic to arrive safely on the other side!

Short but fun taxi ride to cross the Dubai Creek in an old boat that allows you a glimpse of old times. Completely recommend it and for just AED1.00!!!!!
