Took a boat ride to Spice and Gold souk. My 3 year old loved it. Regulars just jump off the boat as it reaches the dock. We waited for it to dock and then got off.
Abras are very cheap to take across to the Souks and back again. Plenty to get and you can also take an hour or even ask them for 30 minutes and go up and down the Creek to see more of the bustling and busy local boats loading up all their wares to take to other countries .
