A must do in Dubai. It only costs AED 1 for a traditional trip across the creek. A fantastic way to see the old part of the city from the water.

To cross the creek in an abra only cost us 1 dirham that is equal to 24 cent in euro. This was how we got across from one side to the other. Nice experience.
