A bit too hot for a taste, but we really enjoyed touring the old market place. Not too many purchases in this district, as we have all the gold we need at this time.

Good experience to visit gold souk especially tourists. But be aware of the temperature out side, too hot now. You can see large gold ring there which was got Guinness record.

Over rated and not worth the trip. The prices are really high, especially for informed American travelers and shoppers like me. The shop keepers didn't want to bargain much and stuck mostly with the sticker price. The quality and design of the jewelry was more...More

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
