  • 黄金市场只有一条街,一家家黄金饰品店橱窗展示着自己的宝贝,满目奢华。这里没有所谓24k纯金,大多是18k,20k,21k,最高22k,倒是在其他地方不常见的,饰品造型以当地的传统习俗和当地特色为主。 香料市场离黄金市场很近,主要是以当地食物中的香料为主,还有一些药材。很多没见过和不认识的东西。 
  • The market is located near the famous Gold souk "Golden market" where sold gold. A large market, lots of spices: starting with plain pepper ending expensive saffron. All advise to be traded on the market, but we came late and purposefully — we are advised to buy black Indian tea. It was already late and the market was closed, and the price of tea 20 Dirham (for large package) is not reduced. Recommend to purchase this tea.
