The design of the souk embodies the region’s architecture. A number of shops sell everything from woollen shawls to paintings to funiture and furnishings to a variety of handicrafts and beautiful unusual souvenirs of the region. Locally grown dates, coffee pots,silver and brass swords and khanjars, sheesha pipes, antique jewelry, trinkets and Persian carpets are hot favourites. Twenty waterfront cafes, restaurants and bars give you an opportunity to relax while you soak in the tranquility of your surroundings. You can also take a boat ride down the canal, a la Venice style!
