Abras (water taxis) on Dubai Creek

Travel back in time...and across Dubai Creek. For 1 UAE dirham, you can hop on a dhow that will motor you across Dubai Creek. Seeing Dubai from the creek serves as a great reminder that this city was first and foremost a port city, and that the original inhabitants were both desert dwellers and expert sailors. It's a paradox that's at the heart of Dubai, a desert city on the edge of the Gulf. The boatman will be happy to talk with you, and for a fee, he might be willing to take you on a tour of the creek.
