  • Not having the characteristic aspect of the souks that found, for example, in Morocco has interest in a visit. I think, however, that the best time to feel the spirit of this area is at night.

  • If you have already arrived in Bahrain, then visit this Bazaar is a must, since you can see the Oriental coloring and buy something not very expensive.

  • A good place to wander but I don't buy there as never sure if one is getting value for money if bargaining.
