UAE 2016 Day 02: Gold Souk

Deira is the oldest part of Dubai, on the eastern front of the Dubai Creek. It houses the Gold Souk which Cat holds much affection for. It is also Dubai's most famous and visited souk, with a labyrinth of covered walkways that is home to hundreds of retailers offering a very large selection of jewelry made from gold, silver, diamond and other precious metals and stones.

Dubai, City of Gold!

yes indeed

Cat's eyes literally lit up

walking purposefully

where do we begin?

It's a fascinating place that should be on the list of everyone visiting Dubai, even if you don't intend to buy (in this case, my dear wife).

this display immediately caught our eye 

wonder how much a vest would cost?

beyond our wildest imagination

'worth its weight in gold', literally!

From this point onwards we’ll let the photos do the talking:

strangely, no security personnel in sight

this intrigued us Boys

distinctly gangsta style

we're in the 'hood!

for a Muslim country, they're pretty open minded

the Lord Jesus flanked by his guardians?

this crucifix was really appealing to me

this one too

we'll take them all

in our dreams, of course

wonder if I can ever afford this

Finally managing to tear herself away, Cat was crestfallen as she joined us to make our way back across the Dubai Creek. We were feeling rather hungry after all that walking and decided to head out for an early lunch.
