Not so interesting destination in Dubai. There are way too many hustlers in the streets by the gold shops mongering fake watches and other fake things. The shops sell gold jewellery at duty free prices.

Yes, if your interest is Gold this is your place, your dream place. Shop after shop, not sure about prices? Did not buy. All designs and styles available.

Fabulous sight of gold for sale with little obvious security. But enthusiasm dampened by the hustlers trying to sell fake watches - really !!!

More gold than the eye can can see. Although not in a style I am used too. I found it too pushy and crowded, so just past through quickly. Not for me.

We walked through here and it is very busy and hectic with lots of heckling but great fun. Well worth a look.

Gold, gold & gold! And it's not just gold. There are silver, diamond & other precious stones. Alleys lined up with jewellery shops. Brokers accousting you are the nuisance--just stay away from them--and also those selling fake watches. The gold ornaments are mostly Arabian styles...More

A little disappointing here as the design of most of the jewellery and the fact that it was 24 carat made the jewellery look cheap (although 24c is pure gold). A shame but definitely for Middle East patronage and Middle East tastes.

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
