  • Located in the center of Al-Hasa close to Ibrahim palace and the oldest bazar market in Al-Hasa. This souq is very old place for traders along ages ,recently it has been restored as the old souq was c...  more »

  • It is good place to shop but it hasn't any food service or restaurant which makes it in my opinion better place.
  • Old fashioned bazaar. It has an awesome old islamic architecture.
  • Nice things for men and ladies but high prices, coffee shops are really good
  • Qaisariah Souq is a well known historical market built around 1822, the architecture is amazing with narrow aisles and more than 422 small stores that sells a wide variety of men traditional clothing, spices, scents,cookwares, footwear and alot more.....it's a must visit place if you ever find yourself in Alhasa. Yet beware of some of those salesmen. They'll double and triple the prices for you, esp if you look like a visitor. "A good bargining skills is a must have here" you can and will be able to drop the prices significantly...he said 50 SAR, nope I'll take it for 30 or even 25 SAR. Stay firm and leave. You'll be amazed by how many would actually follow you and agree to your price. All in all...a wonderful place to visit and experience a shopping culture so rich and diverse. Expect to spend an hour or 2 here...depending how fast you shop and the frequency of taking pictures. LOOKING FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU HERE ❤
  • A historic market mainly for men. It's one of many historic places that Alhasa is known by
