This is very nice and incredibly intresting place. Small streets, nice little shops. You should visit also a small market and spices market. Houses are white and blue. So nice.

Did not have a great experience here has some shop keepers very rude if you did not buy from them. Would only go if a group of you and definitely haggle the prices down. Sold all the same things in the shops, lots of real fake clothes bags etc.

its like all the sellers went to the same business school using the same sale tactics and same stuff everywhere. If you like camel stuff, plates and wooden carvings this is for you. Haggle alot! Some sellers get aggresive with you when they cant sell to you.
