It's no secret that many travelers consider buying gold in Dubai as one of the main objectives of their trip. This is not surprising: the choice is huge, and the prices are much lower than in other countries, because in the UAE they have very low taxes and import duties on gold, and Dubai traders sell gold jewelry in vast volumes. In addition, Dubai is one of the safest regions in the world, so your purchase will be secure.

The atmosphere at the gold market keeps the spirit of the old Dubai and ancient traditions of the Middle East. So even if you aren't fond of golden trinkets and you aren’t going to buy anything at the market, it's worth calling at this authentic place for entertainment.

Tips and hints: before you lost your head in the market gold rush, you'd better bargain! Don't be shy, here it is "comme il faut" and in the order of things, and the price can be reduced by more than twice.

Location: Deira district

Open hours: the market is open from 10:00 until 22:00, on Friday it opens at 16:00
