Sometimes all that glitters is gold in Dubai’s souks, the place to dig deeper into the local culture while picking up some souvenirs as dazzling as Dubai itself. Check out the Gold Souk for 24-carat window shopping and displays crammed with gold, silver, and precious stones. Since Dubai is one of the safest cities in the world, you can feel comfortable wandering around the endless rows of glittering shops—by some estimates there are an astounding 10 tons of gold in the souk. Dubai is known for having extraordinarily good deals on gold, just be prepared to bargain hard.
