Camel Souk, Al Ain

2.7
Busy, loud, and often a little pungent, Camel Souk offers a fascinating glimpse into a specific aspect of traditional Arabic culture. Traders come to the market to buy and sell camels, usually through some intense bargaining. Feel free to walk around and observe the animals in their pens, from young ones to studs designed for breeding. The camels make for great photos, but be aware that traders may well demand money afterwards, so consider asking permission first. Women should dress modestly, so as to respect local customs.

  • Have read in advance about this market and were somewhat skeptical. You can find very good camel market and there are sufficient parking spaces available. Were equal by one "Official" on Quad welcomes us we declared that everything may look at us, can not go anywhere just in the barns directly. It was especially noted that we should give money to anyone and that may require money to anyone for anything. We should call us right with him if anyone should bother us. Original market, not a "traditional Club". Here, everyday transactions are carried out every day. All have greeted friendly and it was very interesting and relaxing.

  • Maybe only, true, original place of Al A. Pungent odor. Poor people who live as and with animals.

  • Authentic camel market and other livestock. You can walk here as a tourist and shooting. For (amateur) photographers a must.
