City of Gold

The Dubai Gold Souk is a traditional market (or souk) in Dubai. The souk is located in the heart of Dubai’s commercial business district in Deira. The souk consists of over 300 retailers that trade almost exclusively in jewelry. Retailers in the souk include both well established stores and smaller stores. Approximately 10 tons of gold is present at any given time in the souk.

The store we chose to stop in was the beautiful Al-Romaizan Gold and Jewellery LLC, Branch 2. The owner, Hussein Al Dhaibani was absolutely wonderful. His customer service was great and he treated us extremely well. Their selection of gold was impeccable! He even dressed me up in just a few of his pieces and to say the least they were stunning. I felt like a literal princess!

After he dressed me up, people started flooding into the store wanting to take pictures with me! I was so surprised, but it was so fun meeting all these new people!

After all of this, my mom and I ended up getting these beautiful bracelets from him for such a great price.

After visiting the Gold Souk, we decided to stop by the Spice Souk. You could smell the herbs and spices from down the street! They had an amazingly fresh selection of anything you could possibly want.

 

I had a once in a lifetime experience here and would recommend anyone visit. And make sure to stop by Al-Romaizan while you’re there!
