What are gold souk timings on a Friday and Thursday please
Thanks ladies i took the abra route and it was far more relaxing going by the metro must admit. Thanks all for your advice
Agree Tiki I used to do that when I had a car and lived on that side of town....Local abra is 1 dirham per person.......It is amazing to see all the dhows being loaded by hand and wondering how the cargo arrives at its final destination...
Never caught a taxi but probably ten minutes - 20 minutes depending on the traffic....You could also get off at Al Rigga metro station.. and get a taxi......Don't think there would be much difference in time... Really just depends on the traffic and catching a taxi going the right way....edited by lesley65 on 18/11/2010
One thing I love to do is to park the other side of the river and take the boat (the old ones, where everybody goes - cost 1 or 2 or 5 dihram/pers.). Boats arrive at the spice souk, and then we walk to the gold souk. It makes a nice morning/afternoon for guests.
Thanks so much how far is the Souk from Maktoum street, as i most likely pick up a taxi !
Catch metro to Union station , catch a taxi or catch a bus from Maktoum street ,which is outside the metro station (you will have to ask which exit out of the station)At the bus stop there is a time table to see which bus to catch or ask someone the bus to the gold souk.... The bus runs along the creek down past the spice souk .You can get off at the spice souk .. or the gold souk bus stop.The bus drivers are very helpful and if they tell him the want to get off at the spice souk he will help .. The buses seem to run every 15-20 minutes...Coming back they need to catch a bus from the Gold souk bus station back to Union station.... There is an office there to ask which bus..
Hi has anyone been to the Gold Souk on the Metro. Which station do you need to get off at and then is i guess you need to get a taxi !!! If anyone has been some advice would be appreciated. Thanks
