Best way to see the Dubai creek, is in dhow cruise. You will see both sides of Dubai. At one side there is modern architectures, while in the other old souks. You will really enjoy.

I wasn't expecting such a clean pleasant experience. There are a couple of good cafés and always a cooling breeze, and the boat trip across to the gold souk is fun. Great people watching with the dhows being loaded. The markets are a manufactured tourist attraction but that doesn't detract too much from the overall experience.

it was wonderful to spend half a day at Dubai creek, Catch a local Dow across the creek and into the old quarter for some traditional markets and real sights of traditional Dubai.
