Dubai Gold Souk Tours

star-4.5
110 Reviews
Dubai’s internationally famous Gold Souk has its roots in the 1940s, when Indian and Iranian traders began setting up stalls in the area. Today it’s one of the world’s busiest jewelry markets, with hundreds of shops and stalls selling just about everything that glitters—namely, gold. An estimated 20 percent of the world’s gold passes through the souk, with a whopping 10 tons for sale in the market at any given moment.

The Basics
While visitors shopping for gold can land some incredible deals in the Dubai Gold Souk, even non-shoppers will be impressed by the sheer spectacle of it. The souk is a popular stop on guided city shopping city tours, which help visitors navigate the more than 300 retailers. Many comprehensive city tours include a visit to the Dubai Gold Souk along with trips to the Dubai Museum, Dubai Mall, Palm Jumeirah, Burj al Arab, and Burj Khalifa; the souk is also a stop on double-decker, hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tours.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Dubai Gold Souk is a must for shopping enthusiasts.
  • Be prepared for a bit of friendly haggling to land the best deals.
  • Combine your visit to the Dubai Gold Souk with a sightseeing tour of the city or a visit to the nearby Spice Souk.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes—you’ll spend a lot of time on your feet.

How to Get There
Centrally located in Dubai City, the Gold Souk is easily reached via the Green Line to Al Ras metro station. It’s also a stop on hop-on hop-off tours.

When to Get There
The Gold Souk is open from 10am to 10pm Saturday through Thursday with limited (if any) hours on Fridays. The shops within the market often close between 1 and 4pm, so plan your visit accordingly. 

Getting the Best Deals
There are plenty of deals to be had at the Gold Souk if you know a few key things. Before you go, look up, or ask your hotel concierge for, the current price of gold, as this fluctuates daily. As long as you stick to the shops rather than the street vendors, there’s no need to worry about the authenticity of the gold for sale; the Dubai government maintains strict regulations. Don’t be afraid to shop around a bit before you buy, and remember that friendly haggling is expected—and you can often negotiate a better price by paying in cash.
