Myriads of golden jewels and precious stones at the market are not necessarily to be bought, but they are definitely worth seeing.
Dubai Gold Souk is the largest gold market in the world. It is located in the old district of Deira and looks like a scenery from fairy tales about Aladdin. It seems like a genie can appear out of a fancy lamp any moment! Huge amount of gold here creates surreal and magical atmosphere. Apparently, this is one of the reasons why Gold Market is not only a place of bargains with fabulous selection of jewelry, but also a popular spot to have a stroll.
