So romantic to cross the creek by night with abra, sort of "Arabic gondola", if I may. It costs only 2 local dirhams (three years ago it was only one!), and it gives you an idea about the old Dubai. Maybe not very comfortable, but it only take 20 minutes, so not a big problem.

We took this tiny Little boat to set over the creek and it felt great. We had tour guide with us, so we do not know, how much reasonable Price Levels are. But, if comming back, I would ask a longer trip to see the old town from the creek.

A short ride across "the creek" by Abra is certainly worth the 1 Dirham cost just for the experience. We took an abra from Deira. If you have been visiting the Textile Souk and need to get back without taking the metro all the way, this is the fun transport. You can, of course, go the other way. That's a definite possibility if you have been visiting the Gold Souk. A short ride, but the cost is only about 50 cents. How can you go wrong?

I found it a very calm and soothing experience to be sitting on the traditional wooden boats and taking a ride down the creek. Highly recommended.

We love this place - the Abra trip gives a completely different view of Dubai. Its also the cheapest thing you can do. We always take visitors and the children love it. There is a little museum on the opposite side above the souk, its free and you can watch a short video on the making of Dubai.
