A Gold Souq or Gold Souk (Arabic: سوق الذهب) is a gold market in arab countries of Arabian Peninsula and particularly in GCC countries. The word Souq is mostly used by Arabs for open markets. The term evolved through the expatriates settled in Gulf Cooperation Council countries, and spread to other Asian and western parts due to the growing numbers of expatriates in GCC countries. The term is often used to refer to the gold market in Arabized or Muslim cities, but also appears in Western and Asian cities.
Dubai Gold Souk has narrow lanes that are lined with hundreds of jewellery stores.
