Went out early to avoid the heat. First took the metro to the Al Ras stop and walked around the gold souk area and along the canal. I wanted to take the water taxi across to the Old Souk area but the wait was too long since they have to wait for the boat to fill up with 20 people before they take off. I took the metro across to the Al Ghubaibi stop and then walked around the Old Souk area and the canal where the water taxis where buzzing around.
In the evening took the metro to the Business Bay stop and walked over to the Dubai Creek boardwalk. After dark there was some excellent skyline views with lit up buildings.
