  • Unfortunately, there is not much of tradition or culture to be found here anymore. It is more reminiscent of every other shopping mile in the world where jewelry is sold.

  • When I was walking along the Spice Souk, I was stepping into the Gold Souk before I knew it. The tout is terrible, "Why do you do it!" "Hello!" While being called out in the chorus state of the frog, Pandora's Dubai limited charm is said to be cheap, so I was drawn into the shop and saw it. The shopkeeper said, "The real thing, i can see that it is sincere in my eyes. It says, and it comes with a really suspicious eyes. In conclusion, it is a fake. The day before, Madira Jumeirah Souk (no tout, air-conditioned, high price) was checked at Pandora's retail store in the day-to-date list price 9000 yen is fake 6000 yen? And, feeling said. When I left the store saying that I didn't need it, I chased him. It's pretty persistent. Finally, I went to the shop of the order necklace which is often introduced in Japan, and made a nice necklace. They will deliver it to the hotel within the day. It was a very sincere shop.

  • Do you like 21k and 22k gold? Then this is your place! Very nice souk to walk around and shop, or just walk around. Most of the souk is shaded so it’s perfect if you are visiting during the summer. We did and it was hot but the shade helped a lot. Beware, merchants will not leave you alone trying to sell you something so be patient and send them away with a nice “no thank you”.
  • An amazing place to look around and window shop. Lots to see. Gold diamonds and other precious metals and stones. Lots of chaps asking you about watches & hand bags but beware they maybe copies. Also lots of street sellers of drinks & nuts best make sure you have some water with you
