This street has gold shops on both sides of the street and it glitters so much. It's a beautiful site and great fun to shop for gold in these shops. The shops have different designs and beautiful ones. It is must when one visits Dubai and one should go there in the evening to see the glittering shops.

The Gold Souk is the place to go if you just want to look or if you want to buy something gold in Dubai. Prices for the gold are set by the government and prominently displayed on signs outside of the shops so there no haggling on the gold price. However, you may haggle on the service fee price and...

The gold souk wasn't exactly what I expected. I had wanted to find local wares: touristy items like magnets/t-shirts/scarves/etc as well as gold bracelets and earrings, and I think I expected push carts and pop-up shops. What I found was constantly being followed by men down alleys encouraging me to buy knock off purses and sunglasses among (welcoming) air-conditioned gold... More

Its a different experience. Too much gold, like really too much. Your eyes will be doing '$$' LOL. I'm not a fan of gold so I didn't find it amazing and it was very hot, But it might be an attraction for Gold Lovers.

You have a selection of any type of gold jewelry you could desire. Be prepared to be approached by vendors . Very chaotic. Selection of karats and style is unlimited.

Well, to pass by for once, it is ok. But as usual you are not able to watch the nice gold pieces without anybody is talking to you and puts pressure on you to buy something.

If gold jewellery is something you are looking for then this place is a must see on your Dubai visit. Be prepared to spend some time there as you need if you are serious about your purchase. Don't forget to ask for authenticity certificate if you purchase

I must admit I was skeptic about this place from the start, it could be due to the fact that I had previous experience in some other Arab country Souks, and wanted to avoid way too direct approach of the sellers and way too intense advertising. Or maybe because I anticipated that if it is not a street market, then... 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.
