A city known for its ultramodern architecture, skyscraper-filled skyline, luxury shopping, and lively nightlife, Dubai, in the last few years has become a highly visited tourist destination. Oil revenues helped accelerate the development of the city, and today, Dubai has become a global transport hub for passengers and cargo. Although the revenues from oil reserves have dried up and now the contribution is only 5%, the global city now thrives on revenues from trade, tourism, aviation, real estate, and financial services.

Noisy, chaotic and colourful all at once, the souks sell everything ranging from gold, silver to spices, perfumes, textiles. Shopping at souks paints you a picture of how the trade market looked like in Dubai before the skyscrapers came in. Be sure to bargain at the souks and start by halving the price quoted. You should be able to settle by paying 75% of the original offer. Also, carry cash as cards are often not accepted at these souks.
Gold Souk - It is the world’s largest gold market with over 380 retailers who are primarily jewellery traders.
