Dubai Gold Souk

Going for the GOLD! 

Dubai Gold Souk in Deira is one of the most famous visited Souk in Dubai. It is a must for a tourist itinerary, even to those with no intention of making any purchase. Like the other Souks the Gold Souk is like a maze of narrow street that houses hundreds of shops literally overflowing with gold jewelry.

Upon entering the market price of gold is displayed on signs found around the Souk and even in some individual stores.

Pieces are sold by weight according to the market price plus additional charge for workmanship. It is always advisable to barter and never accept the first price that they offer for it always start at a steep price. A little tip, the weight price is non-negotiable and is a fixed price, but the workmanship price is always negotiable and can be reduced for as as high as 30%. 

Their window displays are always on point and good for photo ops!
