Dubai Gold Market is located in the old Dubai city of Dilla, near the Dubai River, adjacent to the spices market, and Dubai Museum and Bastakiya Folk Village across the river, Dubai tourists must go.
On a Saturday in early May, we went by light rail, got off and walked, and got there a few blocks away.
The whole market is not very large, there are about 300 or 400 shops, there are high-grade European gold jewelry stores, but also traditional Arab style shops, many shops cover an area of only 10 square meters. Although there are many shops, but the style is very different, and each has its own characteristics. Some have European artistic styles, some have strong Asian characteristics, but more are Arab traditional styles.
Dubai Gold Market is the third largest gold trading hub in the world. Standing under the rain shed, looking at the brilliant s, giving people the greatest feeling is more, not only variety, style, but also a large number of amazing. It has been estimated that there are ten tons of gold in the whole gold market. Ten tons is equal to 10 million grams, according to the Shanghai Futures Exchange gold per gram 380 yuan, the whole gold market does not count the process manufacturing cost, the gold itself is worth 3.8 billion yuan. Suppose there are 380 stores in the whole market, then about 10 million yuan of gold is displayed every ten square meters. Look at the gold jewelry hanging on the shelf one after another, not like a jewelry store at all, but more like a wholesale market for small goods.
Not only a large number, but also a surprisingly large variety, on the shelf, you can see rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, nose rings, cigarette mouths, candlesticks, book blocks, penholder, crutches and animal sculptures such as ostriches, rhinoceros, antelopes, giraffes and other animal sculptures; there are gold vest and chest pockets worn by your wife at a price, as well as gold shoes and gold hats worn by luxury beauties. Here, there is no money can not buy, only can not expect.
There are many kinds of gold jewelry in Dubai gold market, novel styles and leading trends. It not only inherits the traditional Arab style, but also integrates into the fashion and splendor of Europe, as well as the exquisite craftsmanship and superb quality of the people in the Gulf region, which gives people a primitive and natural sense of beauty. Coupled with the tax exemption policy of free trade port, the price is low and tourists are eager to buy it.
Although the gold ornaments of many shops are all disorderly placed together, it looks like a small commodity market, but there are absolutely no fake goods. Because in Dubai, a fine for selling a fake may not be earned for a year. Any tourist who buys rare gold ornaments here can complain to the government that the shop will be ordered to close once it is found to be true. There is little fraud in Dubai's gold market, and visitors from afar can safely buy it.
One or two police cars are often parked at the front entrance to the gold market, and heavily armed and armed policemen patrol from time to time. There is also a police car at each side door, while another patrol car passes through the entire market on an irregular basis. It is said that the local police have been maintaining a high-handed posture, so that those who do not dare to act rashly. Because of this, the entire Dubai gold market has maintained a good record of safe business for many years.
When it comes to Dubai, many people think it's Tuhao. But I think Dubai people are not indigenous but shrewd, because they use pride to make money from the world.
