What an enchanted area. To think this is where trading of goods & spices happened many years back, makes you feel somewhat part of the culture just standing there. The smells, crowdedness, products & food is soooo worth the visit! This is a definite stop...More

The Souq is open till 1.30pm then closes and reopens at 4pm. So you can go there from 10am to 1:30.
