The city’s famous Gold Souk, considered one of the largest gold bazaars in the Middle East. A maze of alleys behind the main arcade crammed with souvenirs and ethnic traditional costume jewellery. If you can’t find what you are looking for many shops will tailor a design to suit you. Most jewellery is 24 carat and usually no less than 18 carat.

CP Tip: It’s all about the haggling if you want to land a bargain… Check the daily price of gold online beforehand.
