Deira Gold Souq information
All that glitters is gold (and occasionally silver) at this colourful covered arcade where hundreds of stores overflow with every kind of jewellery imaginable, from tiny pearl earrings to giant golden wedding necklaces. Simply watching the goings-on is a treat. Settle down on a bench and take in the colourful street theatre of hard-working Afghanis dragging heavy carts of goods, African women in colourful kaftans and local women out on a shopping spree. Best in the evening.
