Dubai, Venice-Style

For a taste of cityscape scenery and daily life in Dubai, there's nothing quite like cruising the hard-working urban waterway of Dubai Creek. Consider a ferry ride aboard a traditional wooden abra boat, a water taxi popular among locals and tourists alike for shuttling between the Bur Dubai and Deira riverside districts.

Short and sweet as it is, an abra voyage is likely to take a high-profile place among your Dubai vacation memories: the creek bustling with vessels, the looming skyline, the reliably lively market of the Gold Souk so easily reached from the Deira docks. Riding the current of Dubai's lifeblood, you'll truly feel in the heart of it all.
