We found the gold souks very interesting and we walked around the narrow lanes with people haggling and trying to get you to buy something. It gave us that very Arabian feel/experience. One of our party (smoker) was approached by a street pedlar and dissappeared up a very dark and narrow alley with a packet of cigarretes he had purchased from a local vendor for Aust $1. He also ended up buying some jewellery (for his partner/girlfriend) at reasonable prices. While it has this shady feel about it we felt quite safe walking around the souk. There are literally hundreds of jewellery shops competing for customers. Well worth a visit.
