Went looking to buy some gold and drove towards the gold souq. Absolutely no parking available till we noticed the multi-level car park. Parked on the 4th level and went browsing. We were short of time and hence only went to the shops on the...More
Full of fake overpriced knock offs. All the spices were overpriced by 2-3 times a fair price. This place is built to rip-off tourists and for nothing else. The gold prices were also way higher than what we see in the U.S. and some had...More

You have to go here just to look at the over the top pieces of gold. Lots of shop windows to pose in front of. The spice market area is very touristy. Leave the market area and go into the back streets and see where...More
We went to the old Gold Souk at Deira. Oh my, I could not believe stores after stores street after street was all these Gold stores. Plus every store was very busy. I shopped at Dhakhan store and had amazing quality and finishing of each...More
I visited here in May but as it was Ramadan and incredibly hot , too hot to stay, I decided to try again in October and wished I hadn’t bothered. Instead of the historic spice market I was expecting I was bombarded with people trying...More
Just like the Spice souk this place has lost most of the old world experience, but is still well worth a look. Tons of 18k Gold on display bright and friendly well worth a walk around. The gold is cheaper than a lot of place...More
With a little effort and asking the locals for directions, we found the Gold Souk first, followed by the Spice Souk. These places are not to be missed when visiting Dubai. The Gold Souk is an eye watering experience of expensive gold designs, and the...More
We visited the gold and spice souks recently and found them pretty underwhelming. It was good for our children to experience sonething different outside the glitzy Dubai malls etc. However compared to souks we visited years ago in Syria and Egypt these were pretty poor....More
My wife and I visited the Gold, Spice and Perfume souks on our recent trip. Really nothing special. The gold jewelry is geared toward Indian/Middle Eastern tastes. The spice souk was very pushy and the initial prices quoted were ridiculous. If you are looking for...More
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.
