Deerah Souq


Souks and Markets

Deerah Souq is in the old part of the city near the Al Masmak Fort. It's famous for its gold souq section, so sometimes it goes by the name of Deerah Gold Souq. It has a plethora of little shops arranged in rows along narrow streets. Shops are organized or bunched together by product, so that shoppers can browse and bargain all in the same area. It's heaven for the shopper! There are carpet shops, gold and silver shops, souvenirs, antiques, traditional clothes and props, even furniture. Hop from one shop to another until you find the right price for the same item. Most shop owners speak English so language shouldn't be a barrier.
