Both sides of the creek are interesting. They are connected by small boats that take you to the other side for a small fee. This is the old Dubai and authentic Dubai. It was strange to see that there weren't many tourists here. If you stay in Dubai you need to see this. We went to see this part of town at sunset and it was perfect. We visited the stamp shop and did some interesting buys. We walked through the gold souk on the other side and were impressed.
