    Hi friends,
    I am travelling back to India on 20th, i have to take the connecting flight in dubai on 21st of this month . I am planning to buy gold in dubai airport , cant go out of the airport as i have only 2hrs stopover. please suggest me as how dubai gold is good- like price or purity.
    IS it good if we buy 24 carat gold coin or bar or good to buy readymade jewellery in 21/22 karat.
    please give me suggestions.

    thanks,
    Ambika

    Hi ambika,
    You can buy gold anywhere in the airport.But if you have foreign currency ,like dollars you won't have a problem buying in any shop.If your currency is other than that ,you need to go to moneychangers there which will shorten your shopping time.Either gold coins or jewelry are good.Purity is best there .Local made jewelry's making charges are less compared to jewelry made by others.Hope this helps.

    yes. I fully agree with what Vijji said.
    just wanted to add -
    if your goal is investment, bars or coins are better (coins cost a lil more than bars for the same weight)
    if your goal is for use, jewellery is better - workmanship is superb - especially, bangles!
    jewellery is better only if you intend to use it and not to alter it for at least 5-6 years.
    just some thoughts.
