  • Years ago the Dubai Gold Souk was known as THE place to buy gold and jewelery. We visited it today. The amount and variety of items to buy is extremely large. Many of those are made for arabic taste. ...  more »
  • Full of shops selling gold ornaments, known for quality, choice, design. Bit of bargain possible, and also gifts and sovenier shops are there where you can bargain. 
  • I was looking for a gold bracelet but didn't find anything that suited my taste. A lot of the jewellery is very ornate and most is 22k which is very yellow and of course more expensive. Some of the sh...  more »

  • Great fun place to visit in Dubai. By the creek, there is lots of interesting things to see and do in the area so it is well worth a taxi ride to the area. If you are looking for any jewellery, this is the place for you. We managed to get around 40% discount off a piece we were interested in and it offered great value. There is shop after shop selling everything you could want, from silver and gold to gems, large and small. Really interesting and a great local atmosphere - it felt very safe. The downside is that you are pestered by men trying to sell fake watches and bags - its great of you want to buy one, but as we didn't, it was a bit of a pain. Overall, I'd say definitely go here. You'll have a fun day out!
  • Fantastic place to buy jewellery or have it made or repaired. You will be spoilt for choice here. Location of the world's biggest gold ring @63kg. There is a gold replica of the Burj Khalifa 5ft tall. If you can't find what you are looking for here then it is probably not available. Also they don't mind haggling on the price because of so much competition.
  • You will find good stuff gold diamond and sliver sets also there are hidden fake item available like in watches ladies bages perfume and glasses even you found many branded copy items so careful all visitors no guarantee for any items
  • Interesting place. If you want to buy something you need to be good at dealing about the price otherwise you will pay to much. Be prepared to leave when the price isn't right for you
  • One of the best places to buy gold & souvenirs! Con- Harassed by people trying to sell you fake products (EVERY STEP).
