Gold Souk - D 85 - Dubai - United Arab Emirates

The Trunk Travellers
8. Experience Gold being sold like vegetables: When I packed my backpack for this trip to the gold souk, I left a very important thing back, my credit card. Before you get critical, it was a straight choice between continuing the tour to Africa or maxing out the card and head straight back home. If only, the prices in the souk were even remotely comparable to that of a vegetable market. Just stroll around the market, try a few pieces, be in awe of some and come back to your hotel dreaming about the gold paradise ( No buying right! we are on a budget you see :p)
