We visited the whole area including gold souk, fruit souk, fish souk, fabric souk, spice souk and the shore. It was very contrasting to the other modern city parts.

Fit to be the world's largest shopping mall! It is a huge place, so plan for a lot of walking and allow yourself plenty of time. Plenty to look at and shop in most stores, even just window shopping. All kinds of restaurants to choose when you get hungry.

A ride in boat to on the creek and then entering the local market was great. Do your shopping from local markets only. Avoid spending in malls on shopping.

If you go to Dubai don't miss going to the creek. The contrast between old and new Dubai is amazing . Take a ride on the little abra boats and see the old dhow boats as they have always been. This area is a must see when in Dubai.

We had booked outings through a travel agent and everyone else on the Doha cruise seemed to be from India or nearby countries and therefore felt very uncomfortable not speaking the same languages and being a big culture barrier. Food was OK. and you do not see much in terms of sights on the cruise. it was a buffet but... More

the old town, the creek and the markets give you a wonderful feel about the old Dubai looked like before everything is the biggest and best. I truly enjoyed our little boat ride, the walk around, eating some local food and discover the magic of the orient

We've strolled around the Creek area on both sides in the daytime and have taken a dinner cruise on the Creek in the evening. Lovely late January warm weather. The atmosphere along the creek,especially on the south side in the area of the Old Souk is vibrant - busy with locals and tourists coming and going off the Abras and... More

Definitely worth visiting when around the Souq area. You can try taking the Dhow from one side of the creek to other. Good place to walk around, click some pics :)
