Destination Management Company :: Great Escapes :: The Gold Souk


In the late afternoon and in the evening, the streets around the Gold Souk fill themselves with people coming from all over the world. A colourful variety of Indians, Arabs, Africans, Europeans, Americans and other nationalities visit the "City of Gold".

More than 300 jewelleries situated one after the other are waiting for their visitors. Brilliants, emeralds, sapphires, bracelets, watches, rings and necklaces - everything the heart of a jewellery lover desires - glitter in the nicely illuminated show-cases. The assortment seems to be endless. Jewels in 18 carat or 21 carat gold and treated in the most precious way are acquired by their new owners. There is no doubt that prices are cheaper than in most places all over the world. 20 - 60 % savings compared to the purchase of gold in Germany are nothing extraordinary.

Haggling about the price is like a tradition.

Take your time and plan 2 to 3 hours for your visit. The best time is the late afternoon. Usually, the shops are open until 10:00 p.m. The initial unsureness in bargaining gets lost pretty quickly, and you will really enjoy "haggling" about your favourite piece.

The wider the choice, the greater the trouble. Mostly, one does not know which shop to enter first. We have had a deeper look into the "Gold Souk" and are happy to present you our picture gallery.

The payment can be done with usual credit cards. However, we would recommend you to take cash with you (best in Dirhams). This will help you to "get hold" of a good many jewellery pieces at a still slightly lower price.

Almost all of the beach hotels offer a shuttle bus free of charge for your drive to the Gold Souk in the afternoon. Of course, the bus driver will bring you back to the beach hotel where you are staying at a fix time.

Profit of the possibility to get in e-mail contact with the different shops - even before your departure for Dubai. Maybe you would like to get a custom made "gold piece" especially made for you with the help of a picture or a detailed description. Even those desires are going to be fulfilled at any time in the "City of Gold".
