The gold shops are all in a line and something that you have to see to believe. You will find some of the best prices/styles for gold jewelry in the world here. Highly recommend visiting here if you're a tourist in Dubai - even if you don't intend to purchase any gold. Do beware of the fake merchandise (bags, sunglasses,... More

Constant hassle from sellers offering "copy watches", "copy bags", "copy t-shirts" takes away from one of the few original and characterful areas of the old Dubai that survive. If you know what you are looking for and its value this would be a good place to buy. Not a pleasant experience though.

Beware the fakes trying to lure you into their shops to buy famous brand bags etc. Stick to the main section and be prepared to hunt for bargains. Haggle and you can actually purchase for as much as 1/3 of the price AND walk away, they will come after you in most cases!! A fun time just haggling - even... More

Worth a visit even if you are not buying but beware of glittering temptations that lie behind the glass! Visited here many years ago and managed some very good bargains, price is by weight....a very short walk takes you through the souk with the majority of stores adjacent the covered street. Would be nice if there were some reasonable street... More

On my 2 trips to Dubai I have visited Lucky & Samir at Lucky Jewllery in the old Gold Souk. You will never find 2 nicer people to deal with than Lucky & Samir. They welcome you with a smile & a cold drink to quench your thirst. If diamonds are your thing then this is the place to visit.... More

While in old Dubai you'll certainly pass this souk, even if you didn't come on purpose to buy something. It is really interesting to see all that shine and extraodinary pieces of jewelry, who sincerely I don't know who is buying. The prices are lower than in Europe, also the craftsmanship and you can bargain, so you can do really... More

This is a fun and great place to be when you're in Dubai... Just make sure you are firm when you scour the area so you will not be cajoled into buying if you still are not decided. Prices are far cheaper than the souk in Dubai Mall.

I expect to see traditional souk, so I can feel an authentic culture of Dubai. But I only see a modern shop with extraordinary gold store display. Nothing more. Better experience in spice souk, though it's not as big as the gold one. But in here, you can see a lot natural spices (and aroma) inside the small alley. Please... More
