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.
