The old Gold Souk is a place not to miss, even if you are not interested in buying gold. People call Dubai the "City of Gold" and the reason is very simple: in a small area you can find more than 300 jewelleries - at a good price. The entire souk glitters like gold, but it's not the only thing that's on sale; you can also find diamonds, emeralds and sapphires. Look at the siye of those gold bracelets and those gems: they are amazingly big...

If you want to know what's on sale, just linger about... someone will approach you and list (very fast) all the items he has on sale... everything from jewels to designer handbags to anything. The first time a salesman produced us his "selling" list, we were left speechless... over here one would need a supermarket to display all those goods: he had one cosy tiny shop.
