It was fun walking around and looking in the windows at the vast amount of gold. Prices are not cheap. The best way to negotiate is to find out the price of gold for that day (ask them). You are given the weight and then you can quickly figure out the "workmanship" mark up. That is the part you can... More

For tourist buses, it is a regular stopover because of the many options of gold . I was dazzled to see the narrow lanes that were lined with hundreds of jewellery stores. Here, one gets a good option to know about the types of gold and intricate designs are a treat to watch. There , we have hundreds of retailers... More

Gold is gold Plenty on display Some nice very yellow 21/22 carat gold bracelets Some large necklaces a little over the top for my taste Difficult to gauge the prices quoted if you are not someone who buys jewellery frequently Didn't seem that cheap but acknowledge pound has been weak So left empty handed

The entire place is filled with gold-selling shops with huge displays on the glass windows. If you want to buy jewellery this is the place to go. Earrings, Watches, Bracelets, Chains etc. There is wide variety to chose from.

But watch your wallet and don't be taken in by the merchants who want to our you in The gold and diamonds are fun to look at unless you are serious about buying then prepare to haggle The street is busy and there are plenty of tourists Fun to visit

I am not big on jewellery but wanted to see the gold souk to have a complete view on dubai. Soon as I arrived I was pounced on "want a tshirt, rolex, perfume etc etc" this caught me out a bit as I hadn't read reviews before going. Consequence was I made a hasty retreat back to Dubai Creek.

We started our trip by visiting the gold souk. The variety and design of gold Jewellery and other precious stones was huge and really over the top, at times. It was a good experience to stroll through and see the scale of the market. There weren't any places to eat around so make sure you're well equipped with water and... More

The most affordable jewellery is at the Gold Souk! There are some great deals, and bargaining is welcome!

The gold here is quite literally unbelievable to see. In fact, who would have the imagination to design some of he pieces you see here. Worth probably millions of dollars and the 24ct gold is so yellow. Breathtaking. The only problem was finding this place as there are 2 gold souks to go to including the NEW gold souk on... More

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
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 air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
