    Gold Souks - UAE is known to be one of the best places to buy Gold and so, gold souks can be found all over UAE. The price flactuates coz it is based on the daily international gold rate.

    Fine pieces of jewelry can be found in Madinat Zayed Gold Center. from Yellow to White Gold, from pealrs to semi precious stones. Name it and they have it.

    It needs a bargaining power to get a good price.

    What to buy: Jewelry
