  • Unless you know exactly what you’re looking for and where, the Gold Souk is much ado about nothing. It’s rather small and all the shops quickly begin to look the same. At every turn, there’s a sorry.....  more »

  • Do you like 21k and 22k gold? Then this is your place! Very nice souk to walk around and shop, or just walk around. Most of the souk is shaded so it’s perfect if you are visiting during the summer. We did and it was hot but the shade helped a lot. Beware, merchants will not leave you alone trying to sell you something so be patient and send them away with a nice “no thank you”.
  • An amazing place to look around and window shop. Lots to see. Gold diamonds and other precious metals and stones. Lots of chaps asking you about watches & hand bags but beware they maybe copies. Also lots of street sellers of drinks & nuts best make sure you have some water with you
  • It’s never changed much which is a blessing. It’s a hot tourist attraction so be prepared for it to to be busy busy busy. If you do want to buy anything you must barter which can put some people off. Lovely pieces of gold on display, some highly extravagant. Take water and visit as early as possible. A great visit though, must see in Dubai.
  • Even if you don't buy gold, this is a must visit place. Gold souk is easily accessible by metro. Get down at Al Rasa metro station in green line and from here it's around 650 m. One can haggle here for reducing the making charges.
  • 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. Even good price on making charge
