“if you are around”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

you should visit the old part of Dubai, including the gold souk. Many little streets and little shops you can easily get lost. But if you are looking for something, you can find it here. don't forget to negotiate the price :-)

“Not a great place”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

This could have been a nice place to go and see all the gold and jewellery. However, as soon as you step into the souk you are barraged by vendors.

I had enough after only about a minute, and just quickly walked through, not really taking anything in, which is a shame, as I would have liked to spend some time there.

“Gold souk”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

An ancient market. The market has been preserved well. My husband and I went so many times without getting bored.

“What a site! An Aladins cave of treasures.”
Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

This was my first time overseas and this was quite an experience. Wonder through the various shops however most offer very similar jewelry pieces and it seems that several shops are owned/run by the same people. The staff are very persistent - even if you are just looking. It was certainly an eye opener.

“Well worth a look”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Have fun haggling with the locals and dont be afraid - the prices are there to be played with! Do your best and they'll do theirs, they're interested in a sale! It's hectic but rewarding!
