Visited the souk no health and safety here. Motor bikes drive up the small alleys and walkways it's best to keep in single file but keep a good pace . There are no names for streets , allies or squares and it very disorienting nearly 3000 traders the ironmongery bakery very interesting . Cats everywhere. Suitable footwear advised as uneven...

Crazy, narrow streets with a lot of shops and clever salesmen trying to sell overpriced things. To haggle is always necessary. Be aware of the moped riders who wriggle theirselves through crowds of people.

First off if crowded places, motorcycles, and repeated requests to stop and look are a turn off to you then this is not your place. If you like to see what is literally around every corner and turn and want to experience another culture, then enjoy. We really enjoyed it. We had a guide with us much of the time... More

If you are pleasant the market people are pleasant. Just remember to use your common sense in regards to safety and just be pleasant... More

We loved the souks! An endless maze of alleyways lined with trinkets, treasures and colour. Every shop is filled to the rafters with the chosen goods, but be warned - if you stop to look closer, you're instantly in a conversation and haggling for an item! Not so bad as it's fun to do and the locals enjoy it. But... More

One of the most colourful and nice bazaars in Africa. Keep relaxed, Keep your eyes open, try to enjoy it :) A polite no thank you will help most of the time, if you don´t want anybody´s "help" to find your way... offline maps apps will be useful, but don´t always work properly in the souks... call your hotel to...

We have been to the market in Istanbul which was a huge disappointment. This market differs from being an actual working market which is well maintained, local, and fun. Yes, it's full of tourists, but also locals buying things. One to two days in enough to buy what you like. Advice: go the the artisanal craft market just outside the... More

We suggest your get a price indicator from a shop which displays price before you start bargaining. Do not bother with a guide, although a compass is useful.

Large area with all the trappings of a souk. Plenty of local items and characters, too. And watch your pockets!

Unfortunately went round here and could easily get lost found the whole area a bit intimidating and it personally put me right off and I didn't want to go back
