There was only one "low point" during our recent trip and stay in Dubai ... the Gold Souk. To be quite frank, you are bombarded by touts from the second you step off the bus and venture with the guide into this area that isn't attractive in the slightest. If you are after sophisticated gold products, forget it, as most items are very "kitch" and the sheer quantity on show was overwhelming. The touts selling everything from fake watches to drinks and T-shirts are relentless and quite intimidating. Don't take up any offers to pop down one of the many alley ways to visit their "shop", as it is a fairly silly thing to do and will put yourself in a position of buying to get them off your back. We couldn't wait to get back on the bus and get out of this area.
