When we went it was busy, lots of people, lots of gold shops and lots of touts trying to sell fake watches. It is OK for a bit of fun or if you seriously want to buy gold but I wouldn't make a special trip or pay for a tour. It is in the middle of Deira where traffic is... More

This souk is just what the title says...a gold souk. It's a nice experience to look through the shop windows at all the unique pieces of jewelry. Some is hard to imagine anyone wearing because of the size. Just like any souk there are plenty of men trying to sell you knock off watches and handbags, but they are not... More

A must visit when in Dubai. We travel frequently to dubai and we go every time. Love the atmosphere in the area and the gold shops are brilliant. We usually buy from Mignas jewellry shop as they usually have the best quality diamonds and best prices. We usually get a taxi to meena bazaar then cross over at the creek... More

The souks seem to be the same no matter where you go. I see the same stuff and Gold souk was no different. The vendors aren't as aggressive as places like Marrakesh or Istanbul. Anyhow it is still fun to go around and look at everything. There is a Guiness Book of World Records gold piece just at the entrance... More

This place has a lot of shops which sell gold. I would suggest not to buy diamonds from there. They have gold jewellery ranging from traditional to contemporary. Also, see different shops before you buy because many shops have the same designs and their price or conversion rate may vary.

I walked through the Gold Souk and could not understand why it is so popular. Most of the displays in the shop windows were quite ordinary and I was constantly pestered by people who didn't own stalls but were trying to get me to come with them to buy watches. You can easily skip this without missing out on anything.

In real it's a small street with several small lanes. Street is occupied with gold, lanes - silver, souvenirs and goldsmiths. Gold - it's the main goods here. If you want to buy some gold - it's the right place, you'll find the thing you've dreamed about. I've seen rings, bracelets, chains and even clothes made of gold - most... More

To many shops at the same place, hard to no where to go. To many people trying to sell fake watches, bags, clothes etc. But when you would like to by some gold, there could be good prices.

Lots of the same and the items are very over the top I think this type of jewlery appeals to a very unique clientele not many people buying and the hop on hop off bus doesn't run to time so you can end up waiting for ages in the heat....not really my thing although I love jewlery and gold....things looked...
