  • We stayed with a small group and our guide there The biggest ring is the only worth seeing there! One we are repeatedly approached by the site with come to buy Rolex no matter how many times you say no. Prices far too expensive! The ring is right at the entrance, you don't really have to go on

  • It's truly an incredible experience to see so many gold and jewelry shops all in one place with pieces that go way beyond your imagination that you rarely see anywhere else in the world. The art and craftsmanship of these pieces are truly exuberant and one of a kind and just to witness this itself its absolutely worth a visit to the Gold Souk in Deira, Dubai. You can spend a whole day here being amused by the pieces. There is a wide variety of stores catering to different palettes such as Indian, European, Middle Eastern etc. While the experience is incredible, I felt that the prices to be much higher than what I can find outside. I found out later on that the reasons are many. 1, being a popular tourist stop, the prices are higher than usual as they know many people might be willing to pay a premium to get a piece as a souvenir or for the fact that they came with an intention to buy gold in Dubai, probably not knowing other lesser known areas which may have a much lesser premium. 2, the stores in general provide better rates for people or rather businesses who by gold in bulk. Therefore for a simple retail buyer the prices that are quoted and later reduced after some bargaining, is still much higher than what a person/business buying in bulk can secure. 3, the margins placed on the making charge is much higher than what you normally find in the market. This was a bit surprising to me as I understand most pieces found here are machine made/cut than handmade, which should translate into a lesser premium. We went to the souk with the intention of buying some pieces, but we ended up getting nothing as we felt the prices were way beyond what we were used to. Nevertheless we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of witnessing a place like no other which I would recommend everyone out there to enjoy!
  • Would be better if the let you browse a bit more than trying to drag you into their stores. Dating that there is so much variety to choose from if you have the time
  • Authentic shopping arcade, beautiful wooden arches, bit similar to old Souk but this is gold - stuck in time whilst the city around it ivolves so fast. It's amazing some shops have gigantic gold chains, I wonder who wears them though!
  • This place has been here a long time and is always worth a visit. As with all these places you have to run the gauntlet of hawkers trying to sell you fake watches, but a firm no thank you always works (unless u want one). Mostly the gold on sales is the very strong gold coloured gold which i think caters more for the Indian (wedding) market.
  • The best place in the world to buy gold Here you find all the creativity and find all the models and all the creators of gold from the gold industry from the Far East to the Far West All models are available in the Dubai Gold Market. And prices with the international stock for a moment and at the same price the stock market is a beautiful place does not imagine the mind is very beautiful things very. I advise everyone who visits Dubai to go to the gold market. This place is the creativity, the art and the trade are all here and you will definitely buy from here because it is the most appropriate and you will definitely see it.⭐️👍🏻
