I am not sure what I was expecting but it was definitely not this. From the outside, it looks like an an unassuming building. No indication it was a souk. My bus driver had to point it out to me. The entrance ( from the direction I was coming from) gave no indication there were shops inside.

Inside, the building was air conditioned, and had an upscaled feeling to it. You would know it was targeted to tourists as there were not many locals within it. I love the building interiors, and would consider buying some of the stuff particularly the furniture.

But nothing I would spend a huge amount of my time at.
