  • Nothing special
    October, it was hot of course. We cannot expect it to be coll5in the Souk, and it will be very humid. That's NOT the issue. The issue is that the vendors are quite aggressive and they are all selling the same things. So it got kinda boring. Price of things are of course marked up a lot. Whatever they offer, slash it by 60% at least. We didn't buy anything, went somewhere instead.

  • It's going to depend on your previous experiences
    If this is your first time to a Middle Eastern souk or bazare, you might like it. If you have experienced the grand shopping of Turkey, Cairo or Morroco, you will probably be disappointed. The spice selections are small. You are probably better off going to a super market for saffron, where you can be assured of the quality and age. On the plus side, it's quite small and easily navigated. The vendors seem to be more agressive than elsewhere.

    Really disappointing experience. Extremely aggressive shop owners physically latching on and trying to drag you into their shops. No matter how nice you say NO your met with physical persuasion. I wouldn’t recommend women to go here alone either. I’ve been to souks in other countries and have had a great experience haggling and buying items. I was really looking forward to an authentic souk experience but this was like visiting a cattle market where your poked and prodded till you give in.
