  • Abras

    by Srechko Updated Apr 1, 2005

    A fun and functional way to see Dubai Creek is from the small water taxis called Abras. It will take you from Deira to Bur Dubai side or other way around for only 0.50 durhams.

    Most of the shopping malls in Dubai have proper under ground parking facility. So parking should not be a big deal. However you must remember the parking area number where you have parked your car.

    The Abra journey across the Creek is quick (costs 50 fils) and is how the locals cross from one side to the other.

    Cross the Creek with an abra

    Dubai is split in two by the Creek. If you want to cross it, obviously you can take a car to the other side but it's much nicer to pay 1/2 dhiram and use an abra.
