Where to Buy Gold in UAE (Abu Dhabi, Dubai)
If you are based in Abu Dhabi, visit the indoor gold souk at the Madinat Zayed Shopping Centre. It is strictly termed the Madinat Zayed Gold Centre and is a bolt on to the mall. Here, you’ll find the majority of the shops we’ve mentioned along with a variety of many others. There are also many gold shops on Hamdan Street which gain much attention and additionally most of the malls such as Marina and Abu Dhabi Mall will have branches of the famous Damas and Pure Gold if you are restricted on time. Hamdan Street focuses predominantly on the Indian styles, but has some western, european and Arab styles as well.
Dubai gold market is widely called The Gold Souk in Dubai. This place is popular for shops selling tons (yes tons..) of gold.You will NOT find this much of gold anywhere else in the world. You will definitely be surprised to see extra large gold chains, gold bars hanging on shops without or with a very little security.The other reason to visit is the price. Gold in Dubai is the cheapest in the world.The best time to visit the Dubai gold souk is in the evening. Leave plenty of time for your tour, because you will need time to hop from one shop to another, touch and try those beautiful jewellery.There are two gold markets in Dubai. The old gold souk and the new one. Both are in the same area and very close by. The new Dubai gold market is in a 2-story building, and the old one is in an area scattered with jewellery shops. However, you will find same jewellery in both places. Bottom line is jewellery in one place is not different to another.
