The Gold Souk

Labyrinth of opulence

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Dubai holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

If you like all things sparkly, Dubai’s Gold Souk is the place for bargains of the gold, platinum, diamond, and occasionally silver variety. A stroll through the souk is a dazzling experience, with shops positively dripping with precious metals. If you spot something you like, haggle seriously and you could get up to 30% off the original price! The government keeps tight controls over the goods on offer, so you can be sure your buys will be genuine.

While you are visiting the Gold Souk, why not check out some of Dubai's other cultural attractions?

"The Gold Souk is right next to the Al Ras Metro Station making it very easily accessible. I would recommend the metro since the roads can easily become congested with heavy traffic and road works."
