This was an amazing cultural experience. There are open air markets to buy your scarves, traditional clothes, souvenirs and spices. Local shops and markets are open till 11pm. Local street food at its best. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian food tasted great. You get to see...More

We was diamond shopping with a couple that had recently got engaged so thought what better place to head in Dubai than the Gold Souks. We had heard a lot of friends boasting that they had purchased a ring for around £4,000 and when they...More

This is another place where you feel like haunted by the sellers. You can't simply watch at the items without having to refuse different offers coming from the sellers. Better than in the Spice Souk, but still an experience that I don't want to repeat....More

I would be very careful here. The traders can be very pushy. One physically grabbed my wife and pulled her into a store. Then he refused to let her leave and blocked the exits, even though my wife was obviously afraid. Be extra vigilant.

It is nice to have a more modern building with individual stores full of gold, but most of the designs are targeted at Indian weddings. If you do some window shopping, you can find some modern designers with a more Western flare if desired. Fair...More

In my opinion, the best time to visit the Souk would be close to sunset. We went in December and it was still warm so I couldn't imagine going in the middle of the day with intense heat. Another reason for going during... More
