Felt very safe. Really enjoyed exploring, don't worry about getting lost as the locals will always show you the way back to the main square. Bartering is great fun. There are the usual beggars and people selling fake watches and phones, if you say no firmly they will leave you be. Keep your money in a money belt to keep... More

Lots of advice about how to deal with the Souk and here's a bit more! Enjoy the experience, talk to people, haggle politely and don't be afraid to say a firm no. That aside relax and take in the multitude of colours, sounds and smells. If you go on an organised your the guides are excellent, our was, good English,... More

You must not stop or touch anything otherwise your not left alone. Be very alert with the mopeds,they don't give way to anything. Very easy to get lost, if you look like your lost your get pestered by men wanting to be your guide.

We initially went to the souks with a tour and then decided to go back on our own. Providing you are not rude the stall holders will be friendly with you. I used to smile and say "may be later". They all sell the same produce. To barter you have got to be strong. Work out what you are prepared... More

You need a number of things before you venture into the Souk, bottled water, a compass, a good sense of direction, tissues and the ability to say NO! You will meet lots of young men who will want to show you the way back to the square, but very firm, despite telling you they don't want money, they do and... More

We tried wandering around the souks around 7.30pm but gave up as we were almost afraid to so much as glance at a shop or stall before finding the owners trying to drag us into their shops. Most of the goods were not of the greatest quality, similar dodgy goods to that found in almost any Mediterranean holiday market. There... More

Good place to visit but you need to barter to get a good deal. The prices start very high and sometimes they seem stuck on the price

Having just recovered from being lost and nearly held hostage in Istanbul's Grand Bazaar a few years ago, we were slightly anxious about entering the Souk, but we had a great time - only hassle from the tour guides in the Square, and that was just crazy - snakes and monkeys everywhere. A great atmosphere in the Souk and the... More
