Markt/Basar in Houmt Souk
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Bizarre as it may seem this was the parting memory on a Thursday afternoon visit to the flea market at Houmt Souk.

Arrived via a very cheap cab journey from hotel zone. Two parts to the market. A flea market that sold piles of used clothes as well as everything else you could think of and an established bazaar.

Pretty much nothing of note in the flea market although just walking around makes you realise that you are in the developing world. Things were much better in the bazaar. Lots of shops with uber cheap prices. Plenty of cafe's to boot too!

Having had hassle walking around Egypt this was a totally different experience. A firm 'Non Merci' to traders worked well when needed. Equally, the two ladies in my group had a very relaxed experience which again was great.

Visit with an open mind and see what you can find.

Beyond the few seconds of picturesque cute, a huge market like one finds the world over, and not only in developing countries, lots of junk, cheap clothes and other equally dispirinting wares, and endless solicitations from the vendors.
Was happy to see it, and even happier to leave.

Good market. Look for the Fondouk of Pottery for good deals. Prices are far better than the souk in Tunis. Fixed price stores generally offer good and similar process, but shop around before buying.
