You can find almost everything in this market. Rings, earrings, anklets, necklace, dresses, goggles, pen, watches, iphones etc. Made of gold. The designs are unmatchable. If visiting Dubai, do take something for yourself in gold coz you won't get such designs anywhere in the world.

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
