Away from the modern glitz of skyscrapers and fancy malls, this is the place to experience Dubai at its origin. Traditional souks in this area. Local restaurants also cater to locals more than the international tourist crowd. Worth your time to explore the area.

There are plenty of boats waiting to take you either across or down the creek. It’s so cheap it would be a shame to miss the opportunity. You can take a quick trip across to the Souk for something silly like 30p, take a cruise...More

The boat trip is like a 5-7 minute trip for 1dirham. You don't need to pre book it. I don't know till what time it runs in the evening.
