Today we travel to old Dubai and take a water taxi (known as an Abra) across the creek from Deira to Bur Dubai. There's around 150 abras in operation and business is fierce. The fare is just 1 dirham (27 US cents) and a must for any visitor to the "City of Merchants".

I hope your abra drivers aren't as reckless as our taxi drivers! I'm sure people hate to get wet while on their way to work!
