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.

Very good attraction. Experiencing the dry dock's height and length was amazing. Would definitely recommend getting a guided tour of the dock as otherwise limited information available.

Was pleasantly surprised at the low low price of taking an abra across the creek. Doing it the way the locals do.

Had an interesting walk through the textiles souk on the way between the old Dubai fort and the Bur Dubai Abra dock. Caught the boat across the creek for 1 dirrim. All part of the experience!

“Quick service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Easily able to access this ride across the creek. Just hop on and have your 1 dirham ready to hand to the boatman. If you are unsure what to do just ask someone. Cheapest ride in Dubai. Would be great to enjoy this area in the cooler season.
