I have wanted to visit a Souk every since Sex in the City 2. It was wonderful. Gold stores everywhere. Lots of beautiful jewelry. Bring lots of money, even with the ability to haggle, the prices were a little steep for what I liked.

The spruikers proposing 'genuine fake' watches or handbags are so annoying we were not tempted to linger very long in the souq. Should the merchants get rid of these annoying men flying around you like mosquitoes, I would be more tempted to buy..

It was amazing how much gold there was on that strip. I had to take a picture of the largest gold ring in the world.

Accessible via metro (Al Ras metro station, just one stop away from Al Gubaiba) as well as by bus. Gold Souk comprises of numerous shops selling almost identical designs of gold and silver jewelry.

I would never return. Street vendors hounding you constantly to buy fake watches and purses. One guy even grabbed me and tried forcing me to look in his store. There really isn't anything to see.

The Gold Souk was a stop on a tourist drive. Fascinating that so many shops were selling exactly the same thing. We walked around for twenty minutes and then headed back to wait at the bus. The jewelry was really over the top, with pieces that would cover a persons entire top half. Sure if you like that sort of... More

The Gold Souk can be accessible from water taxi, metro, taxi or bus. Having visited the Gold Souk several times now, each time I discover a new area or new shop. The main indoor street is full of shopping selling a fantastic selection of gold, silver, gemstones and other jewellery pieces. The sizes and styles vary as well as the... 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.
