Spice Souk Reviews & Ratings

  • A good market with lots of markets and can buy anything! As per most markets the vendors all in your face trying to entice you in for a sale. Best way is say "no" with a hand gesture of 2/3 fingers in downward motion & keep walking! But a good experience. Only a few public toilets in the area that are very far apart so be warned. Have fun

  • I found the spice souk to be rather interesting. Such amazing collection of spices and their natural aroma. Good place to buy spices, nuts and dates. I was happy I had a guide as the maze of shops was bewildering and it helped to have someone who could guide me on reasonable prices. It was an excellent experience to see so many different spices, fruits, vegetables and teas, one could spend a whole day in this Souk. Great cultural experience.

  • They had a lot of spices but beware of the sellers. I got dragged into a store an the guy wouldn't let me go. And the prices where over the roof. At the end I went to the last store because the older men there didn't bother us. It's better to have a guy with you. Then they don't bother you.

  • It is crowded with touting from the sellers and people hustle and bustle but I have to say I feel safe and not worried about being pickpocketed/thieved, which I have never felt anywhere else. The sellers are nice and friendly but of course you need to bargain hard. Enjoy my time shopping there.

  • I am in love with d Gold market. The fact you see so many designs including diamonds and real sterling silver. Good thing is you can bargain as well.
