What Is It?
As part of the efforts to implement the image enhancement programme, the Dubai Municipality will be giving a makeover to the Gold Souq in Deira, based on its interactions with traders and customer concerns and complaints. Jabir Al Ali, director of the general maintenance department, said that renovations will be carried out across the souq and added: “We will fix the flooring, add more fans and conduct some maintenance in shops“. The second phase of renovations will start next year.
The souq will be developed in innovative ways while preserving the heritage character and the building facades will be given aesthetic touches. With over 380 retailers offer gold, platinum and diamonds, the Dubai Gold Souq remains a must-visit place for tourists and residents looking for some great deals to buy gold. The government keeps tight control over the genuineness and quality of all the merchandise.
Location: Al Ras Deira, adjacent to the Deira Corniche near Baniyas Square at Sikkat Al Khali Street.
Timings: 10am to 10pm from Saturdays to Thursdays; 4pm to 10pm on Fridays
