Gold Souk

The Gold Souk is Dubai’s most famous and visited souk. A labyrinth of covered walkways is home to hundreds of retailers offering a huge selection of jewellery made from gold, silver, diamonds and other precious metals and stones. It’s a fascinating place that should be on every tourist’s itinerary, even those with no intention of making a purchase.

Strict regulations ensure items on sale are accurately described. Pieces are sold by weight, according to the current market price. There’s an additional charge for workmanship which leaves room for a bit of haggling.
