Once you reach the opposite shore, you'll have plenty to explore among the souks and small shops lining the bank.

  • The crossing of the Khor in Abra worth the cost, given the price around €0.25 per person. To cross my old Dubai Creek, starting point of the success story of this port, or is traded fishermen and bedouins. Each side several and different souks, RHA of course, spices, or tissue. You will discover another facet of Dubai you'd dream not so much that these has 100 places to what you have discovered around. Way to traditional river transport adapted to tourists, easy to use with departures constantly throughout the port. But beware, we offer anywhere from counterfeiting, watches, clothes, perfumes, etc, and the law is strict customs. With very little chance to pass whatever it is which is detected at the portico and a lot of problem has the key. However the water is of a rare pollution with everything that floats to the surface, may be it was a day of heavy rain, very rare wrorry in Dubai

  • This was a good mode of transportation to reach the souks for shopping. Our boat had a little fender bender with another boat and the dock but they are used to that.  more »
