#19 of 515 in Things to do in Dubai
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.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
