"Take plenty of cash" Gold Market (Souqs) Tip by jmschief
Gold Market (Souqs), Dubai: 12 reviews and 17 photos
Basically find the area - the Gold souk and go collect loads of cards from different shops and prepare to barter.
It's all good natured and essential, you wouldn't believe some of the discounts we negotiated - up to 60% off in certain shops.
The jewellery looked fantastic and I bought my girlfriend a beautiful diamond for a fraction of what it would've cost at home.
What to buy: Here - Diamonds and Gold. Becuase it's a bit of a bizarre market atmosphere type place, you do get a bit of hassle from salespeople trying to take you down alleyways to their shops but as long as you're not pushed for time then go with the flow and enjoy looking around. I must have visited a dozern shops and bartered in each before deciding on what I wanted.
What to pay: Well, I won't put this down in case my girlfriend reads it and throws my very expensive diamond back at me - but a lot cheaper than in the Uk for definite!
Directions: Ask any taxi driver
