Between the Ras Al Khaimah National Museum and the sea, the Old Souq is busy with shoppers in the mornings and late afternoons buying everything from fabric and gold to kitchen items. Further along the creek, on the western shore, there's a fish market and a number of tea houses which are worth a visit, while another smaller souq nearby offers an interesting array of souvenirs.
