The old Spice Souk is not yet touched by «the civilization» it keeps traditions and primordial appearance, but the number of shop counters here reduce every year.
Spice Souk, Dubai
It is a place where the atmosphere of the old Middle East literally fills the air – at Spice Souk the smells of all kinds of spices and herbs can make you light-headed. You can come here just for an excursion, but walking along the narrow streets of the market, it is simply impossible to resist a purchase.
