Enough time to visit Dubai from Sharjah airport on a 9 hour layover?

Hi people,

I’ll be flying from Istanbul to Kathmandu with Air Arabia on tuesday the 22nd October.
I have 2 options, the first one will only give me a 70 mins layover at Sharjah airport (UAE).
But i can choose a second flight, arriving at 06:10 at Sharjah and departing that same airport at 15:00.
Do i have enough time to visit Dubai from the airport?
Is it easy to get there and back again tothe airport?
Is it expensive to do as a very short city trip? (but maybe worth it?)

I’ve seen the airport is situated 30km from Dubai centre and normally should take about 30 mins but that transport times can increase exponentially during peak traffic hours.
Of course, i don’t want to risk missing my flight :)

Thanks on any advice!
Joseph
