" A Place to visit as - whether you are Shopper or Visitor or Traveller." The place as the name suggest is Market of Gold & Jewellery. It is traditional Old Souk (market) and has various vendor selling Gold & Diamond Jewellery. Yes, at times its crowded though but you get the feel to be walking in that Old Dubai... More

You will probably go here whether you're a shopper or not - just for the experience and because you've heard so much about the Gold Souk - that's why I went. I found it crowded, repetitive, and the vendors totally annoying. You can get here on the green line of the Al Fahidi (Dubai Metro). NOTE: The Dubai Museum is... More

The gold display are amazing but they don't sell pure (9999) gold. Can walk by if you have time, but not a must and not if you want to buy 19K - 24K gold items.

have never seen so much Gold hanging around in the market ever Before. This experience was just amazing where we found so many shops all selling gold and others selling spices... Imagine a gold blouse or a gold tiara ... Yes... Name it and they have it .. My top suggestion - you must visit

When we went to Deira Gold Souk, first thing which dazzled me was the amount of Gold. There were more gold jewellery then eyes can see. Price is also very good (as there is no Govt. Tax). However designs may be an issue if you are looking for something very contemporary. If visiting Dubai, consider going to Gold souk to... More

Gold Souk was an experience! I mean, everyone wants to sell to you! 'Watches', 'handbags', 'hair extensions', 't-shirts' is what most sales men were approaching me with! And be prepared to be stopped every metre or so to be told the same thing!

I'm not much of a jewelry enthusiast, but was absolutely captivated at the dazzling array on display at the Gold Souk. So while I've no advice for shoppers, I would highly recommend this as a Must-Stop for tourists. We walked through as wide-eyed sightseers, and experienced no pressure. But I'm certainly grateful to those who do come to buy, so... More

If You are not an expert (as I am!) for buying jewelry try this: 1. Enter the Gold Souq early morning for ex. 10am (not so crowded) and look around all shops. 2. Find a big tables in the souq (You cold hardly miss it) with today's gold price for gram 24 carats, 22 carats... 3. Find what You want... More
