  • What a beautiful experience! People were very welcoming and the artifacts are insane. The vintage scene is rich and the locals were trading french old coins in the souq. Amazing.
  • The place and the drive to the place is too awesome! The beauty of the mountains on the way, the roads are just amazing to look at. The market itself is quite big, one can indulge in buying a lot of stuff here ranging from halwa, clothing, dates, food stuff, animals, pottery, etc., Really loved my visit to this place.
