We took a boat from the Baniyas Marine Station to Dubai Abra Station. We paid 2 AED per person with NOL cards. The views at 3 pm were beautiful. The staff was helpful. The stations were nice and clean. The boat was excellent.

uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
