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.

Well preserved part of the Emirate culture. Allthough it look chaotic, it works perfectly!

Thank silage

If you don't have any option of moving then only Abra should be choosen.

This is not a safe mode of crossing the creek also & i don't see that the operators are properly equipped even at an accident.

A great and very cheap but possibly hectic experience - crossing the Creek each way on an Abra. There's nothing to it, but you'll get a feel for the hustle and bustle of old Dubai and see the old, but still fully used Dhows lined up side by side along the Creek with every sort of product stacked up on the dock-side, before they set sail to the portsaround the Persian Gulf .

Either pay for an hour and travel up and down the creek or pay just $1AED for a trip across the creek to experience the wonderful waterways of Dubai. We loved the hour sitting on our own private Abra. If this is your first time to Dubai it gives you a great insight into Dubai from the water

Fast and very frequent service. Travel with the locals and get great views of both sides of the creek, all for 1 Dirham each way (about 20p!).
