Creek is lovely, if not a little Disneyesque with the little boats going up and down - some nice restaurants down by the water.

The Dubai Creek which divides Bur-Dubai and Deira happens to be a man-made waterway made for the convenience of trade ships. Presently, it is a delight to sail along the creek speciall y in the evenings.

Best to go on your own rather than a tour.
The buildings are amazing to see sparkling in the sunlight.
Take a dhouw to go down the creek as they are very cheap

We went there at the wrong time when it was almost unbearably hot on a small boat. But there are cruizes with air-conditioned boats. The view into the old quarters of Dubai was a nice change. At the east-side of the Creek is the Gold market offering also wonderful choice of jewellery and precious stones such as the emeralds from Columbia, deep-blue sapphires or the purple-blue Tansanites. A delightful way of shopping in contrast to the Malls.
