Abra used to be my favorite in my childhood. Haven't travelled in Abras ever since Metro has arrived. But still it's one of the enjoyable rides in Dubai.

If you are near Dubai Creek the you should take an abra across for the bargain price of Dhs1. These tiny, noisy boats are the quickest and most atmospheric way to enjoy the creek, and get from Bur Dubai to Deira and vice versa. They carry about 15 people across the water from various stations along each side.

There is a different vibe when you are riding these tiny open boats. The smell of fresh air along with the gentle rocking of boat take you to another world. I think this one of the most wonderful ways to travel in Dubai although the routes are limited.

Ride a boat along with 8-10 more people. See Dubai from the calm waters of the place they call Abra. Bargain to the hailing vendors of Souk. Breath the tangy-exhilarating smell of spices. See the heart of Dubai for a boat ride as cheap as 1Dh. You'll love it!

The Abra, in Dubai, refers to the traditional boat transport service that ferries people to and from the shores of the Dubai Creek, with one end at the Bur Dubai station and the other at the Deira station. Priced at a meagre 1 Dirham per ride, the Abra ride, while serving as a rather convenient and refreshing change in Dubai's various transport services, is more of a tourist attraction among the people who generally use this service. Watch out for the DSF Fireworks at 8.30 while on the Abra!
