The colourful array of spices and their heady scents are tantalizing. Shops at the Spice Souk offer spices of all shapes, colours and of course, aromas. And that's not all; you will also find rice, incense or joss sticks, shisha tobacco, perfumes and even pottery. Another fascinating sight is watching shopkeepers packing your purchases into pouches. This ensure that spices are kept fresh and aromatic.
The Spice Souk is a hotspot for tourists as it represents ingredients that in addition to being essential for food preparation, were also used by traditional healers and pharmacists in old times who sourced these ingredients from the very same souk. The souk also provides a fabulous array of colours making the spot a great location for photography.
