The souqs are a veritable jungle of temptations: jewellery, shoes, clothes, and food — all squeezed together, glittering, and emitting beautiful scents. The streets selling typical oriental lamps, furniture, and carpets are a particular highlight. Does it remind you of stories from the Arabian Nights? Definitely! In an almost magical way, the most unexpected depths can open up behind many a narrow shop door. Some carpet shops extend underground under entire blocks of houses. So, if you find something you like, be sure to get it while you can as it is unlikely you will manage to find the same shop again — at least not without a local guide.
