We meet first that of Spices and at the gold one. The spice market nn is very long will be Yes and no a hundred meters and cm every good Arab trader will try to sell you everything by bringing you cn thousand excuses. You taste really little as are the typical Arab markets, especially those of spices since it is really small and compared to the other two also hidden.
A good market with lots of markets and can buy anything! As per most markets the vendors all in your face trying to entice you in for a sale. Best way is say "no" with a hand gesture of 2/3 fingers in downward motion & keep walking! But a good experience. Only a few public toilets in the area that are very far apart so be warned. Have fun
I found the spice souk to be rather interesting. Such amazing collection of spices and their natural aroma. Good place to buy spices, nuts and dates. I was happy I had a guide as the maze of shops was bewildering and it helped to have someone who could guide me on reasonable prices. It was an excellent experience to see so many different spices, fruits, vegetables and teas, one could spend a whole day in this Souk. Great cultural experience.
