The RTA has launched an electric abra service at Burj Plaza which enables visitors to have a trip on the lake outside of the Burj Khalifa and to get a view of the water fountains that operate there.
The abras operate on weekday evenings, allowing up to 9 passengers to get a spectacular view of the fountains and each trip costs 65 dirhams. The trips run from 6pm until 11pm.
There will be additional abra stations opened in due course near this location to maximise the opportunity for visitors to further expand their Dubai experience.
The area around the lake is a big hotspot for tourists due to the Burj Khalifa which is the world’s tallest building, together with the Dubai mall and the evening shows from the fountains. There is certainly plenty to see there for anyone who visits.
