This souk is incredible. There are 380 gold shops all together. I've never seen so much gold and diamonds. They have something for everyone. Some good deals to be had and all tax free.

I have never seen so much gold together in one place! There are more than 300 gold stores, with the latest designs. Be prepare to negotiate the prices as they are willing to accept a lower price. We went on a city tour and 25 minutes it's not enough time to stay. Go on your own and spend the whole... More

Had a visit to the gold souk. Nothing special. There are a number of jewellery shops. Nothing about culture to experience.

Lots to look at and lots of annoying shop owners/ fake goods sellers/ hustlers trying to get you to go in their shop. Im talking every few steps someone is approaching you to ask if you like to buy something! Gets a bit out of hand when clearly they can see you are saying no to the last guy -... More

I would say this is purely a Golden walk. Shops filled with lots and lots of gold. The shine of gold will surely take your breath away. Must for any travelers.

I would recommend the gold souk over the diamond park. I found there was more room to negotiate prices here. I would recommend Marhaba Jewellery hands down. I dealt with Ram such a lovely man and purchased a beautiful 18ct gold ring. Nothing was too much trouble in terms of different styles and ring designs I was interested in. I... More

Unless you enjoy being constantly invited into some obscure shops offering you great (?) deals for (fake) luxury items or gold products, you can certainly skip this experience

Gold Souk is a traditional market situated in Deira. The souk has around 300 stores dealing largely in gold jewellery. One walks down a covered alley with jewellery stores on both sides. A great place for jewellery shopping, or even for just looking around.

This was easy to get to by metro - you need La Ras station and when you come up to the road turn left and walk it will probably take around 10 mins. Unfortunately, we followed the sign at the metro station and we would have walked the wrong way, but their was a map on the street which we... More

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.
