Cheapest gold available here. Do not depend on Dubai duty free as its expensive. U will get gold very cheap in this market.
U need to bargain a little but u might not win at all times.
Parallel to it is a electronic shop. U can get phones at cheaper cost than India. Make sure to visit many shops before u settle on the final one.

The gold souk market is a great place to wander about and look. After you have had your fill visually then you can settle down and bargain what ever calls to you!

probably still the best place to barter for gold but as each shop owner has about 8-10 shops and they note which of their stores you've been into its not as good as you might believe!

Sometimes you just need to go check something out so you can say you saw it. You are harassed from the minute you walk in until you walk out by "black market" hustlers. The displays are something to marvel at. If you don't want to worry about the real deal or not, go to the Gold and Diamond Park Building. I would say once you see it you'll be done with it.

When I think of a souk I picture myself a building filled with little shops, piles of gold bars and jewelry in the windows and shopping locals that are negotiating about the price of an expensive necklace for one of their wives... It turned out to be a very touristic street with only jewelry in the windows (didn't see any bars), filled with Asian tourists making pictures, hardly any customers in the shops and a lot of men trying to sell you fake watches and purses. Big disappointment...
