Take the abra boat in the incredible Dubai Venice, an original ‘city in city’ will leave a host of pleasant memories.
Would you like to pay a visit to Venetia while in the UAE? This is hard to believe, but this is in fact possible. Elite Madinat Jumeirah resort emerged on the Persian Gulf shore not long ago. This resort looks like it was copied from the ancient Arabian paintings. Medieval palaces, suspension bridges, luxury villas, vast squares and water channels are everywhere.
You can take a walk in this Dubai Venetia by traditional arabian water taxi called abra, a nifty-looking boat with a tent protecting from the scorching sun. There is another transport: impatient young people most frequently prefer to move in narrow picturesque side streets by buggies.
The resort will also offer you a theater, an amphitheater and an authentic Arabian bazaar scented with spices and coffee, decorated with marble, wood and stained glass domes. The famous Burj Al Arab Hotel stands high near the Madinat Jumeirah resort.
the cost of travel by water taxi abra - 1 dirham per person. The cost of renting a boat - 75-100 dirhams per hour.
