This is a street full of jewellers shops selling all types of gold and jewellery. The shops are quite smart and the indian shopkeepers are friendly without being pushy. Haggling is a must and is done in a fairly relaxed good natured way. Be prepared...More

Even if you’re not planning to buy gold, the Deira Gold Souk is a must-see when you’re in Dubai. Gold lined up from aisle to aisle, who wouldn’t get attracted just for the fun of it.

Since I came to Dubai, I haven't seen as much gold like this place has. It has a whole street full of shops for gold where you can actually invest your money on. Most of them sell diamonds, golds, and silvers. As a tourist, this...More

The old gold souk is a must visit when in Dubai. It's amazing to see all the gold and jewellery there. There is a lot of fake watches being hawked on the street but they are taking no for an answer. The shops are really...More

We visited the Gold Souk and others across the creek. This is an old town experience that is in great contrast to the otherwise glitz and glamor of Dubai. The contrast makes it that much more interesting. Shop after shop of gold dealers or textile...More

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
