How to take an abra boat in Dubai
This abra boat trip will reveal the beauty and originality of the historical downtown — the Dubai Creek Bay, having the length of 14 kilometers.

According to legend, the first Dubai settlements were built along the Creek Bay. One may take a day or night trip, and it is possible to rent an Abra boat cruising in local waters since time immemorial, at any of the piers.

A tour along the Dubai Creek gives an opportunity to see the shopping areas, which will eventually give way to sky-scrapers. On the western bank, you will see the famous attractions – the Creekside Park and the charming Town of Children. And when you’ll hear the babble of birds ahead of you; thousands of birds from a natural bird sanctuary welcome you.
