Your 6 hour stop over will only be 3 hours by the time you factor in the hour it will take to get out of the airport and the 2 hours that you need to be back at the airport before your onward flight takes off.

If it is not a Friday you may want to take a taxi to the souks and cross the creek by abra.

You may want to take a taxi to somewhere for breakfast with a view

You may want to head to the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa area, which you could do by metro although travelling around by metro can take longer than a taxi because of the route

Perhaps if you tell us what time your flight lands and departs and which day of the week it is we can be more specific
