Hop across the creek and enjoy some sightseeing along the way with Bur Dubai Abra Dock, a cross-river taxi service. As you approach the dock, take a moment to appreciate its restored, traditional wooden structures. Head out onto the waters on a traditional wooden boat, snapping photos of the city's skyline on either side of the creek. Once you reach the opposite shore, you'll have plenty to explore among the souks and small shops lining the bank.
