The Gold Souk

The City of Gold has the majority of its gold imported from Asia and neighboring countries. A short walk from the gold souk is the spice souk. In the narrow alleyways of the spice souk, the atmosphere and the scents of the past can be savored in this Typical Arabian Market. Bags of spices, incense, rose petals and traditional medicinal products are stacked outside each stall. Bargaining is the norm in the souks and even in shops it is wise to ask for the best price’, particularly if paying by cash.
