The gold souk is a must for tourists and gold lovers alike. It was predominantly 22k yellow gold, but I prefer 18k yellow gold (because of the colour). I did have to hunt for 18k yello gold bangles which weren't completely plain and I did find some. Never pay the asking price as it's always negotiable. I haggled in different... More

You cant go to Dubai with out visiting this place but beware there is a lot of hagglers on the street trying to sell you fake watches bags etc but that is half the fun.

Managed to find one store that was not pushy for my buy anything and everything. There are some beautiful, price competitive gold everything in the Souk. Men will jump right in front of you to sell you watches or lure you to see their stock - say thank you and walk past them. There is very little crime, so no... More

If you are a jewelry lover and it is your passion to dig gold, this is the place you can not afford to avoid in Dubai. You will not find huge variety and such a collection of gold bars, ingots, chain and jewelry anywhere in the world. You can find the most compatible prices here as well. Though bargaining and...

Soooo many stores to look at! Many stores had staff approaching travellers asking for business, which drove me crazy. I purchased a number of items from a well reputed company, but was incredibly disappointed with the quality. It is a cool experience though and worth checking out!

Displays and shops are fewer than from years back. You may bring jewellery to have them cleaned cheap ($28 for my chunky heavy platinum set) within the hour or even swapped (by the oz). Other steals would be arabian slippers, abayas and tons of costume jewellery or beaded bags-further in. The souk is closed from 2-4pm daily. You might want... More

Gold souks abound in the Middle East, and there are clusters of gold jewellers in Asian cities. But to a Western buyer used to incredible mark-ups in European jewellers, Middle Eastern gold souks are unbeatable for variety, quality and value. Its worth the visit just to gawk and the masses of gold in the stores. If you are in the... More

This was 4thtime in Dubai and at the souk. Everything bought here valued much higher at home. Research price if you have something in particular in mind - but - this gold will be at least 18k and remember to research diamond quality before you go. You need to haggle and be polite when leaving and saying no. If they... More
