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.

Old world charm, the Abra operates for 1 Dirham from Bur Dubai to Creek side, you get the old world charm of how people used to travel from one point to the other.

Brilliant little touch to add to the excitement of a day at the souks! Extremely cheap- 1 Dirham! Really good fun and a good place for photos/filming. I highly recommend it!

Very nominal fees to use this local age old transport system sustaining on expat use. A great way to see city skyline and cross on the other side. Market and shopping area at both ends. Very cool during dusk times. Very hot and humid in afternoons.

We were told this is a must do. Not realizing how inexpensive these trips are we went over expecting to hear a high price but were stunned by the low aed amount. So fun especially as people are crossing late in the day.
