how to reach gold souk

The Red Line of the Dubai Metro connects Deira to the city centre and is located in Zone 5. From the metro station, you can take a bus or taxi to Bur Dubai. If the weather permits, then you can also walk this distance. From here on, in order to reach the spice and gold souk, you will have to take a short ride on the abra to cross the creek.

about gold souk

If the sight of glittering gold sends your heart thumping, then be sure to make your way to Dubai's Gold Souk where the streets really do shimmer and sparkle under the weight of all the gold they carry. Possibly one of Dubai's more famous markets and with due reason, given Dubai is the largest re-exporter of gold that there is in the world, you will find necklaces, gold ingots, earrings, rings, bracelets, etc in every possible and conceivable design, both original and copy, from all across the world. There are over 300 jewellery shops to choose from including Damas, Joy Alukkas and ARY jewellery. 

It's these streets that give Dubai its moniker of 'City of Gold' and in fact, it is said that any give time there is easily 10 tons of gold present in the souk. Set almost like maze, with narrow lanes and wall to wall shops, out here apart from gold, you can just as easily find pearls, gems, precious stones, silver and even white gold. Be sure to visit this place in the evening, after 4 as not only will the weather be cooler and your shopping more comfortable, but also because shops out here tend to close from 1 pm to 4 pm. 5 minutes walk from the Old souk marine station, Gold souk also neighbors the Spice Souk and you can combine your visit to both these places.
