An enormous center of commerce, the souks at the Medina sell goods like leathers, carpets, lanterns , pottery, jewels, and more. Do not be surprised if you see a monkeys, snakes and donkeys as part of the mix of traffic. Ask your hotel to recommend a guide for your excursion because of the dizziness in Medina. Have a time to take a mint tea, try traditional food, and see the surrounding colorful architecture. Be careful of thieves here that are not unusual, when taking out your mobile phone or wallet. One very old tradition of the souks is the haggling, feel free to ask a lower price, but try to have sense.
