When visiting the souks make sure you catch the abra from the gold souk to the textile souk on the other side of the creek - lots of fun and very authentic.
For one Derham take the water taxi. I started a conversation with people both times and both were very pleasent
the abras are a great way to cross the creek. very cheap at 1 dirham. you can catch an abra direct to the gold souk from the bur dubai side of deira creek. water busses also travel up and down the creek which are slightly more expensive than the abras
The preserved parts of Old Dubai are fun, just wander about, you will not know what is around the next corner. Try spending 1AED to cross the Creek on a local water taxi, well worth it
A must visit for every visitor to Dubai. Experience the water front with all its daily activity and boats shipping every kind of cargo possible!

We took the water bus over from Bastakya side to Baniyas on the other side. You can use the same Nol card (for metro) and it has seats and more safe than the Abra. This one way ticket costs about 4 AED. Good views of the creek..
A must visit during the evenings possibly. Close to Dubai Museum. A very different feel of old rich heritage including an old Souk, Abra water rides (really cheap & enjoyable). Can be accessed from Bur Dubai side or Deira side. Was a pleasant evening trip with family.
