Hectic, crazy, mental, crowded, just 4 words that spring to mind on first entering the Souk, by night.
If you go in the day time, it does feel a lot more calmer, & will be less full of tourists, due to the intense heat, just make sure you carry a water bottle with you.
Would go for the experience really, as after the 50th stall/shop selling the same as the previous 50th, the lure of the haggle loses it's charm & you almost want them to just state the price & get on with it.
Please dont use the horse drawn carriages around the Souk, the horses have stood all day in the blistering heat, dont look well looked after, collapse & then forced to work again...
