We have mixed feeling abou the souk. It's definitely worth visiting but ladies, you may want to wear something less revealing because everywhere we turn, we get a lot of attention. But we think it's not harmful but still made us uncomfortable.

Also, we thought we did a great job with bargaining but later found the same merchandise still selling for less than what we paid for!!

But it was fun.

Loved the experience but do not let them bully you. Advise them u fetch police if they become harassing, and tell ladies with the henna u r allergic as they will try to squirt you if you do not buy. If you are caught taking photos of the snake charming or traditional dress they will want to charge also. Do not give to begging children or unofficial tour guides.

The souk is really great to see. Don't talk to every merchant, just go there and walk and walk and walk. Don't panic, you will find the exit. I love it.

It I were to go again, I'd put in ear plugs. That way you wouldn't have to listen to the aggressive people trying to swindle you every 2 feet. Everyone wants to show you something, and then demands money. I found it best to say "I have no money for you". They seem to get the point very quick.

You'd obviously get asked to buy things but no chasing if you said no. People are so friendly :D

So much to see if you can find your way around, recommend a guided tour.
