I had to pursuade my girlfriend to go to the Gold Souk, as i had read its worth a visit for cheap gold and fake watches etc... . We were staying at the other side of the city (Marina) and it was a good 25 minutes taxi ride. We visited in August (when its very very hot) and when we... More

I had heard a lot about Meena Bazaar, but it turned out to be a big disappointment. So we went to Deira Gold Souk. I not only found it much, much better than Meena Bazaar but also better in quality of shops and a much better variety of jewellery. And you are sure to find something which you will like... More

Perhaps worth a visit just to see all the gold and soak up the atmosphere, but in the August heat it's not comfortable, and every few steps we were pestered by people wanting to sell fake watches and bags.

Lots of golds and best to go in the evening, the way to shop is to know the price of gold per gram e.g 18k,22k,24k, decide what you want ask for the weight multiple it by the price of gold and the difference in price is your bagaining point to get a better price

We visited on a Sunday, everywhere was open and there was a good atmosphere. Be prepared to be asked to go down side streets to look at fake bags, watches etc we had been warned so we just said no thanks. You can barter in the shops and we got a good deal on a ring they give you a... More

Wow! We stopped at the Gold Souq in the evening and were amazed at the row after row of shops and stores. The range of material for sale seems unlimited and items include everything from simple hoop earrings to extraordinary golden necklaces, breast-plates, and shirts. Want a golden pacifier? This is your place! We saw both tourists and locals shopping... More

Staying in The Creek

Neighborhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
