Crossing the Dubai Creek

Crossing the Dubai Creek

On a recent trip to Dubai, we visited the old part of the city and had the opportunity to ride across the creek by Abra. Part of the public transportation in Dubai are the Abras, which are boats that ferry people along the Dubai Creek.

We hopped on at Deira Old Souk Abra Station, after visiting the Spice and Gold Souks. Our trip would take us from the Deira Old Souk Abra station, and across the creek to the Bur Dubai Abra Station. The cost for a one way trip across the creek is 1 AED, or about 27 cents in USD. The trip took five or so minutes.

Crossing the Dubai Creek by Abra was a memorable experience, now to explore more of the city on our way to the Arabian Tea House in old Dubai.
