The more than 300 shops that make up the Gold Souk have been there since ancient times and have given Dubai the nickname "City of Gold". It is estimated that there are more than 700 jewelers in the whole city.
Any time is a good time to visit the Zoco del Oro as its streets are covered, which is essential during the hours of direct sunshine.
If you like gold items, Dubai is a good place to buy them. Without being a bargain, tax exemption and competition make buying gold in Dubai cheaper than elsewhere in the world.
