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.

Camel Souk reviews
This is a great place full of local culture. Go early in the morning to avoid the heat. I would not recommend women going alone. Do not let the workers there talk you into going into an animal pin.... more »
