This is probably worse than Old Delhi for being approached and offered fake watches and handbags, and I’m probably doing Old Delhi a disservice. From leaving the station, Al Ras, walking to the Souk, and through it to the other side, where we caught a...More

We had fun walking through the Gold Souk and even more fun going through the old spices and clothes souk. As long as you know what you want/don't want and what you are willing to pay for things you probably don't need, you'll have fun...More

Gold was not as cheap as I thought it was, but shop owners were happy to barter with you - and they only do 18ct gold and white gold - no silver. Lots of the same jewellery showing in each shop.

There's plenty of everything in the Gold Souk and not just gold. The big stores are very busy but the staff was patient as we looked at different pieces. Gold is sold by the weight. When you get off the main streets, you don't want...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
