  • The gold prices genuinely are good. But you have to "discuss the price" and come to an amicable agreement. Be respectful, be quiet about it if there are other customers in the store, i.e. don't joke a...  read more »
  • Be ready to negotiate when you get here! Vendors will come at you from every angle. To be honest, this is the ONLY place men actually address women. My boyfriend and I visited the Gold Souk more than ...  read more »
  • We visited all the souks and they were interesting and really you must visit them as part of your trip to Dubai. But really we didn't buy anything and it was very busy. 
  • One of the best places to buy gold & souvenirs! Con- Harassed by people trying to sell you fake products (EVERY STEP).
  • Gold Souk is in the Deira part of Dubai. A trip to the Gold Souk truly demonstrates why Dubai has earned itself the title City of Gold. It's worth visit even if you have no intention of buying, just to soak in the atmosphere of shop windows glinting with 18, 21, 22 & 24 carat gold, showing-off the abundant riches of this part of the world. Gold is aggressively promoted with special offers & raffle draws during Dubai Shopping Festival & Dubai Summer Surprises. The sheer scale & varity of gold on offer is impressive - earrings, rings, neclaces, bracelets & pendants. many different shades of gold are available : white, pink, yellow and even purple gold. Gold prices here are among the lowest in the World and are largely determined by weight; also varying depending on whether it is machine-made or by a craftsman.
  • It is old gold market located in old Dubai. It has many jewelry shops and it is definitely a very best jewelry shopping destination. Parking is a big issue here, you may have to park your car 1 km away and have to come here. Better use public transport. A must visit for all Indian travelers/visitors.
  • Great place to visit. Go early to beat the heat, as much as possible. Also, a lot of the shop proprietors are superstitious. They believe if they don't sell the first customer of the day it'll be a bad day. So, if you're the first customer, you can usually get the best deal.
  • This place is more know as the Old Gold Souq, I'm not into jewelry or anything of the likes but this place is where I bought the proposal ring and wedding ring I gave to my wife. There's certain stores there that only sells gold which is better if that's what you are after, most are a combination of precious stones and gold. The price are really low compared to prices found in malls so definitely a place to visit if you are planning to buy any jewelry.
