Gold Souk – Dubai Downtown - In the modern Dubai Mall

Our previous article informed you of the importance and value of Gold as a trade product in Dubai. The old town of Deira had many gold shops but in the Dubai Mall, the have built the biggest indoor gold souk in the world. This new Gold Souk contains only a few shops compared to the Deira gold souk. Why is the modern one then the biggest in the world? They built a gallery and temple, with chandeliers, arches, paintings, and a great dome. It is really impressive. Here you enter the souk to be amazed by a fantasy world, the imagination that turns a shopping mall into a fairytale of 1001 Arabic nights. This is only one of the many master pieces of the Dubai Mall.

In ons vorig artikel schreven we over de belangrijkheid en waarde van goud als handelsproduct in Dubai. De oude stad van Deira heeft vele goudwinkels, maar in de Dubai Mall hebben ze de grootste overdekte Goud Soek van de wereld gebouwd. Deze soek heeft slechts enkele winkels in vergelijking met de soek van Deira. Waarom is deze dan de grootste in de wereld? Hier bouwden ze een galerij en tempel, met kroonlusters, sierbogen, schilderijen, en een enorme koepel. Het is echt indrukwekkend. Hier treed je binnen in een fantasiewereld, en met wat verbeelding transformeert het winkelcentrum zich in een sprookje uit duizend en één Arabische nachten. Dit is slechts één van de vele meesterwerken in de Dubai Mall..
