There's way too much gold to the point it hurts your eyes. Most of it is quite unpractical and I doubt anyone would be able wear such heavy gold. I got extremely sick of seeing so much gold and ATM machines that say "not enough gold? Instant gold right here"... It was very over the top. But since Dubai is... More

If you're looking for gold or precious stones this is the place for you. Also, if you're in the market for fake watches or handbags you'll probably find what you're looking for here. If not, the pushy sales guys of fake products will get on your nerves. Be sure to check the price for gold before you shop so you... More

As we arrived after a very long taxi ride it became apparent that our taxi driver decided to make up his own price for our journey and the language barrier still did not stop him charging us double as we found out later for the journey. Our door was opened for us by a younger local who was standing with... More

Row upon row of gold shops to choose from. All are closely regulated and gold prices are set daily, so you can have peace of mind that you are buying the genuine article. How much you negotiate is up to you! I bought a bracelet and managed to get down to 50% of the original price!which is about average.

We really enjoyed our stay, but I have had a very unfortunate experience buying a ring at the Damas Shop. When we got back to England a stone came out of the ring, however they had an outlet in Knightsbridge so I returned the ring to them for repair. Six months later I got it back! It is a dressy...

The home of Gold - Dubai and its hundreds of gold jewellery shops are housed in the Gold Souq (Gold Market). This souq has evolved over the years and now has many brands, some of whom have 10 plus shops just in the same souq complex. But truly a jewellery buyers delight!

I was really looking forward to experiencing the gold souk and had a long list of things i wanted to buy. However the pushiness of the sellers is beyond a joke. Every step you take someone is trying to sell you knockoff watches and handbags. As soon as you say No to one person the next one tries the same... More

Souks are a definite must-see for visitors - as much for the atmosphere. Often times a buyer will want to negotiate or haggle about how much they will pay.

Do visit the gold souk for a traditional Dubai souk experience, and also to see the world record for the largest gold ring ever made! Note that the souvenir shop vendors could be a little pushy in selling you items, but a polite "no thanks" would do.

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.
