    I did not find them to be very interesting and the gold rates were comparable to India.

    But many people were buying it.They have a flat rate per piece I think so without tax indeed.


    This was some 10 months back.may be things might have changed recently.There's nothing wrong checking it out.If you take Emirates may be you might have more than 6 hrs waiting time.Enjoy and have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Please post your experience when you get back.

    Hi

    The duty free shops in Dubai are little costly than the Dubai city market.But people still buy gold in dubai for its purity.The gold rate is fixed in the shop only the making charge differs which you will find much cheaper than india.The patterns are not mainly indian but mixed and mostly internatinal.Many people make a stop over at Dubai ,i think you should too if you wish to shop..

    Enjoy your trip.
