Tip 1: This souk is exactly the same as the Spice Bazaar in Istanbul, just that it is not so crowded. Mind you, some of the shops shut at 1.30pm so that they can attend the prayers.
Tip 2: Do not give anyone any eye contact if you don't want to buy anything
Tip 3: One round of walking through the market is good enough to see the whole picture. BUT if you are a spice-lover, of course you can stay longer and choose the stuff you like and bargain with the seller.
Tip 4: Please wear modestly because most of the sellers are men.
Tip 5: Its pretty difficult to find a toilet here so make sure you go to the toilet beforehand.
Tip 6: Also try and take the 1 dirham boat ferry near the market. It is one of the most amazing experience i ever had.
Tip 7: Most of the shops are targeting business dealers more than individual buyers. It seems like they are selling wholesale quantity instead of per item.
Tip 8: Definitely ask for samples to try before you buy anything!
