Yes it is authentic bazaar with a wide variety of items. Jewelry, food,clothing, souvenirs, ect. The whole haggling experience. Like buying a car on a small scale. Annoying. The bad experience was a vendor accused my daughter of stealing some trinket. My daughter and her friend stood their ground and demanded the vendor call the Police. The vendor kept demanding... 更多
I'm not huge fan of this kind of markets, since most of them have become in tourist oriented, selling low quality souvenirs. It's funny since most of the local won't visit it anymore.

Check out all of them because they have different things to offer. Meat, seafood, clothes, jewlrey, spices, etc. Tons of great photo opportunities (make... 更多
A friend brought me here to find some delicious za'atar to bring home for my family. A bustling place, be sure to give yourself time to enjoy a bite of hummus or some sweets.
