There was also an area of carvings and such being sold.
I loved to peek into some of the shops and see them hard at work creating the items to be sold! Here is a group of men sewing garments.
This area had a lot of fishing things. Owen had to check it all out!
The gold souq. This was a hot area for taking pictures!
And then there was the pet market. My least favorite area. I couldn't sleep that night thinking of ALL of the pet they had there and in a wide variety, some of which, in my mind, should NOT be house pet. I just wish I could buy them all and set them free! Anyway, we didn't stay here long...
A neat attraction is their police that patrol on horseback!
Lighting up the night
We actually walked away without buying anything! One thing I've noticed is you start to see a trend amongst the souqs and the areas. Most of what we saw here we have seen in Saudi, Bahria, and Oman. There was nothing here we couldn't live without. However, this is one of the prettiest souqs we have been to so I'm so glad we came and it was fun to get out, explore, and people watch!
