  • Dubai: Burj Khalifa Sunset on an Abra

    1. Dubai: Burj Khalifa Sunset on an Abra

    Hop aboard a traditional wooden boat known, as an Abra, and cruise along the banks of the Dubai Water Canal. Take in stunning views of vistas, a native bird sanctuary, and historic dhow yards, as you relax on your comfy Arabian milieu and gaze at the picturesque sunset of the Burj Khalifa. Observe the city’s bustling atmosphere from a distance along with soothing Arabic music and guided commentary. Experience peace and tranquility on the canal waters as you gaze at the sun setting behind the tallest-standing skyscraper in the world, the Burj Khalifa. This is one of the best and most unique ways to experience the city of Dubai. At the conclusion of your enjoyable river cruise, you will be returned to your tour starting point.

    We were the only 2 tourists on the boat arriving a few min late. Amazing views, nice staff. Best trip so far and the cheapest. Totally recommended.

This was a very worthwhile cruise along the Creek, from Festival City right into the heart of downtown Dubai, almost to the foot of the Burj Khalifa, just as the sun was setting. Then returning in the darkness as the city lights came on. A full 75 minutes from start to finish, the advertised commentary was absent; replaced with loud and distorted pop music, which didn’t enhance our experience! Nevertheless the views were spectacular and we would recommend this.

The ship leaves right at our hotel and we would be all alone on the boat. The sunset was lovely and we were able to take great photos. The staff was very nice and we were even allowed to steer the ship briefly. It was worth going along.

Amazing! The best way for sightseeing. And guys who drove the boat are very friendly, they were very ready to help us with our toddler. Very good memories for long time)
