Skip the hassle of transport and logistical planning; and be free to simply enjoy the dunes and activities provided. Zoom off on an ATV, ride a camel, go sandboarding; enjoy henna art and Arabian-costume photos; and conclude with a barbecue-buffet dinner and live shows.

A very cheap ride. I love the ride over the creek side. If you need to head towards Meena Bazar ( Ghubaiba side ) from sabka deira side, this small ride will save you a lot. Very old feeling of dubai reminds you of their old days when they were emerging to one of the travel destination. This connects to the Dubai souq market where you can see a lot of things that reminds you Turkish Bazar.

The gentle purring of the engines of the abras; combined with different water side sounds, makes this dock a pleasant place to hangout. There is a snack bar here, so you can top up with a smoothie while relaxing. It is nice to watch the abra boats arrive and depart, fill up with people and disembark their passengers. A very good place to watch the sunset.

The Old Town is a bustling part of Dubai, slightly more chaotic than Downtown and beyond. The old style wooden abras offer a great experience - one can cross Dubai Creek, where the city’s history began, for just one dirham per crossing. Most of the abras still run in diesel and the smell of fuel is potent but charming. The crossing offers great views of this older part of the city, including mosques and much lower rise buildings than the more modern part of the city. The abras offer access to the gold and spice souks and the numerous restaurants and shops in this part of town.
