  • Stop by to see the Dubai more characteristic and traditional. Metro Green "Al Ras" for being a short walk from the entrance to the Gold Souk. Photos at the entrance and the worlds largest gold ring. Downside: you can't do more than two steps without being blocked by street vendors!

  • While reaffirming that the Council for the special atmosphere and for the unusual presence of checkers of jewelers that expose in an absolutely gaudy their products I have to say that it is buy anything convenient. In fact it is an icon for the city and any guide reports it ranks among the things to see. Gold is spectacular but I wouldn't trust the quality in General, and anyway the workings are targeted for tastes of the Arabs and certainly not of europe. On the roads is difficult to walk because you are continually mobbed by people who want to accompany their stores in nearby streets and the atmosphere isn't exactly reassuring.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
