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

God Souk is one great place to admire and buy fabulous gold jewelry place. Prices are very reasonable and bargaining is expected but make sure you leave your credit card in the hotel and have a budget on how much you want to spend on gold so you don't end up spending all your shopping money on JUST gold. They... More

They are cheaters be careful while visiting and buying gold from mignas. They almost charged 300 dirhams extra as making charge on earrings we bought. whereas when we checked with other shops making charges were around 50 dirhams only... Please enquire about current gold rate and making charges in few shops before making any purchase,

When passing through Dubai, you must visit the Old Gold Souk where you can literally spend the whole day browsing and shopping for gold, silver and fine jewelry, the part I enjoy is bartering with the vendors for the best prices.

The Gold Souk is a good experience, and worth going to have a look. The jewellery is amazing, you will be touted by men selling copy bags, watches ect, but do not let this out you off going. Happy shopping

We enjoyed the local culture at the Gold Souk and purchased a beautiful piece of jewellery. We enjoyed casually walking through the shops and talking to the vendors.

We got a taxi from Madinat Jumeriah to the gold souk and it cost us in the region of 60 dirham and takes about 30 minutes. We entered the gold souk (market) and yes we were asked to enter lots of shops, however a firm no thanks is all it requires if you don't want to. I wasn't in the... More

Apart from buying gold you will get to see the world's largest gold ring at Kanz Jewllery. It's amazing. Get down at Al Ras Metro station & it's a walkable distance. If u are on other side of the creek than Abara(boat) is best. Water ride on Abara is an experience in itself.

Was referred to this store by Lulu at Grand Ivory Hotel in Al.Barsha and never regretted it the moment we went in. My gold could not come to USA with me initially and was worried but it got shipped to me and I got it within 3 days. I really got my money's worth and they are very reliable. Thanks... More

Good fun. Haggle hard. Bought my wife a beautiful bracelet and we considered it good value. It's very distinctive and unlike anything I've seen before. Avoid the midday heat though.
