“Very nice souq”
Review of Aleppo Souk

Reviewed January 13, 2011

I like Aleppo souq more than Damscus souq. Probably, it`s `cause it was my first impression on eastern souqs, bazaars etc after Gran Bazaar in Istanbul, but after a few years my opinion remains the same: Aleppo souq is better than other already listed.

It has a lot of narrow streets, but the main is only one. I was interested in silk scarfs and there`re a lot of them in a good quality. Bargaing is a must, the first price is 4-5 more than the normal.

LIke most Arab souk's there are quite a lot of stalls all offering essentially the same products. However, the setting is magical. lots of covered alleys busy with all manner of shoppers. Almost every alley has an entrance to a Mosque or courtyard for aded interest.

Just fascinating.
One of the most beautiful markets in Middle East.
You can walk in the alleys for days, loose you way infinite times and always come back safe and happy.

A must visit when in Aleppo. Unfortunately we visited when it was just too hot and we ran out of energy and patience! - Wish we could have explored more of it. Don't be too worried about buying here, just souk up the atmosphere!

I spent a Friday in Aleppo but found plenty to see and do. The light filtering into the (mostly closed) covered souks behind the Umayyad Mosque was quite eerie but the souk opposite the Citadel entrance and behind the thriving restaurants was open and full of shoppers. There is a jewellery shop on a corner on the west side of the ring road around the Citadel. The owner spent many years in the U.S.A. and was very helpful.
