Found in the historic district in Dubai, Bur Dubai Abra Dock is the ideal place from which to embark on a memorable water-cruise. Abras connect Deira with this district known as ‘Bur Dubai’ which simply translates to ‘Mainland Dubai’. Dubai Creek’s two sides are Deira and Bur Dubai. 15 to 20 million passengers are said to use abras annually and their popularity seems to be increasing. This is perhaps the city’s most frequently used transportation system. Those in search of Deira Dubai hotels can make use of special offers at Copthorne Hotel Dubai which is the Dubai hotel for holidaying families as well as business travellers.
