Dubai is not just about luxury and extravagance - if you’re adventurous enough you can find places in the city that offer merchandise of great quality at very affordable prices. One of these places is the Dubai Gold Souk, a traditional type of marketplace, but which is specialized only in jewelry. It is located in the hearth of Dubai and is one of the busiest parts of the city.
More than 300 vendors offer gold, silver, and platinum items. Besides renowned retailers such as Damas, many independent sellers offer all kinds of jewelry. And because of those stores, the Gold Souk is special. Bargaining is a must here and it can help you get an unbelievable discounted price for a quality item. Unlike with street vendors, you don’t need to worry about the quality or legality of pieces sold in the Gold Souk as the UAE government is keeping strict control of the place.
The Gold Souk is a market located in the middle of Dubai’s commercial area, at the Khalid Bin Waleed Road.
Nearest metro stations: Al Ras, Palm Deira.
A good idea is also to take a taxi.
If you like to bargain, the Gold Souk could be the perfect place for you. Here you can get a high-quality item on a surprisingly low price. All it takes is a little stroll around the market and haggling with vendors.
