In the Gold Souk of Dubai in the store called "Shyam Jewellers" the seller scammed us regarding the tax refund. You can´t get tax refund from the products bought in this store. A disappointment.

Its rowdy, but once you enter the souk proper, you will be blown away by the amount and gorgeousness of the jewelry sets.

We caught a taxi to arrive here. This was probably our most interesting experience in Dubai. We bought some essential oils @ more reasonable price than in Dubai Mall. Most of people we saw here are traders native to South Asia and the Middle East.

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
