Consider it as 2 parts.....new and old
New...for loads of designer shops in a huge shopping complex that sells just about everything and will take a few hours to cover the whole complex.plenty of places to eat in the food courts. Down side long delays at the taxi rank 20-30 mins during peak time 4pm to 6.30pm
this is the place to haggle for bargains the Gold souk is well worth a visit but be dragged into the back street hidden rooms down alleys....once you start to talk to the local traders they will escourt you in to their hidden labyrinth and will lock the door once you are in their room that is full of every possible fake stuff and they keen on you leaving without spending....felt most uncomfortable....my advice stay in the main souk shops.
