Place: The Old Souq in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

The Old Bazaar, or the Old Souq, without hesitation is granted the title of the fleet leader of the bazaar trading in Abu Dhabi. It is so because the market is the oldest of all the existing ones in the emirate, which is exactly what makes it so good.

Walking along its narrow streets full of all kinds of odds and ends, you will plunge into the flamboyant atmosphere of the Oriental bazaar, learn bargaining and, maybe, buy the most incredible thing in your life.

The assortment of the Old Souq is beyond comparison. Here, you can buy virtually everything, from handmade items and jewelry to carpets, cloths and souvenirs.
