The Gold Souk was quite an experience and definitely worth a visit. The prices are about 30 to 40% cheaper than South Africa.

Gold was not as cheap as I thought it was, but shop owners were happy to barter with you - and they only do 18ct gold and white gold - no silver. Lots of the same jewellery showing in each shop.

Whatever you plan, squeeze this experience! It's wonderful to have all that much gold at one place and you know it's the real deal! And look for the Guinness Book of Record's 'World's largest Ring'. Entirely amazing experience you shouldn't miss!

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original

I am sure they will ask you for a proof from where you got it. If you show them, everything is possible.
