old style Abras are interesting. a bit risky but interesting ride from one side to another. these small boats are slippery and may get dangerous for kids and old people.

We went there after the Cultural centre experience and caught the Abra to the other side of the creek. Great experience.

For just 1 dirham you can take the water taxi (abra) across the creek, as people have been doing for at least a century. Great views along the creek and of other boats and the old wooden trading dhows. Do it!

One needs at least a full day to really appreciate all the bargains one can find here. Wonderful place for gifts.. If you like it.. buy it.. you may not find it at the same price again.

Go there to take pictures and go on a abra ride, if you want to buy anything there just be ready to haggle hard and cut the price by 4 to get a real decent value for the product.
