Never seen so much gold in one place at a time-worth a look even if only for that experience! Yes as others have said you will get people approaching you trying to sell fake handbags and watches-a no and walking on works well. In the shops we found you could look at the displays in peace but staff were willing... More

It's best to plan your trip by considering what you want to buy in advance. Be armed with prices at home and a clear understanding of what you like. I've bought several gold chains and found the prices to be about half that in the UK with great choice. The service is the shops is friendly. Don't feel intimidated by... More

Interesting place to visit, you will never see this much gold any where else with jewellery shop windows lined with gold jewellery. Just be warned that you will be consistently asked to go into shops or if you would like a watch. There are other shops in the area that you can buy clothes, spices and souvenirs.

You may have heard Dubai being referred to as the City of Gold. While there is variety of reasons Dubai deserves this name, it originally was derived from the Gold Souk. Never is this a truer description of Dubai than when you emerge yourself in the golden haze of one of the largest jewelry outlets in the world. The sheer... More

If it's real gold, the Gold Souk is the place to go. Countless shops offer a variety of pure gold jewelries,etc. And they accept credit cards, too. There are also many souvenir shops, electronic gadgets, clothes for men & women, toys & some foodstuff especially delicious dates.

I was offered tea while they attached my new charms to my bracelet. They explained the different colors of gold,etc. They were very polite and in the end gave me good price. Of all the souks, the Gold Souk were the best.

I have to begin by saying that I was really looking forward to buying a nice piece of gold jewellery on my recent visit to Dubai. I found some lovely pieces in Athens, Greece but didn't buy anything thinking I could get a better deal and more choice in Dubai. Isn't it meant to be tax free? I browsed at... More

We got a taxi from the city centre and visiting the souk (market) was really an educational experience. I have never seen so much gold, silver and other jewelry together as at the souk. It is sheer relief entering any of the neat jewelers just to get out of the heat (we were there in Sept, so I wouldn't want... More

The Gold Souk has far more gold than you could ever want (or need). Compared to the textile souk, this is far more relaxed. The area is more like a covered outdoor mall without all the salespeople outside trying to lure you in. Shop staff will only approach you if you're looking at their window display. There are a huge... More
