Dhow or Abra Cruise, Dubai

See the Dubai Guide ›
United Arab Emirates's insider take:

Cruise down the Creek (the name throws many visitors, but as it's a huge, natural inlet it is technically a creek) at a leisurely pace on a large, traditional wooden dhow (moored opposite the Radisson Blu Deira; 971-4303-4888; or else you can rent your own speedy abra (water taxi) from the Deira Old Souk or Bur Dubai Arab Station. They are used by the locals to traverse the Creek from Deira to Bur Dubai for a mere 14 cents, and tourists can hire one to take them sightseeing (flat rate of $27 an hour).
