Souq al-Hamidiyyeh
Reviewed 7 December 2017

its like the history stopped inside this Souq, things you see inside are definitely a wonder.
the old songs, the shisha, the icecream hows its made, its one of the most jaw dropping things to see

What an experience, the friendly haggling of the purchase is expected and wonderful to watch as a non Arabic speaking visitor. I got a few precious items.. so fun !

If you want to capture the essence of your visit to Damascus, you must at least take a walk down this road. Try to get the feeling of how the locals live, trade, and spend their every day life, or maybe buy a souvenir.
This is Damascus in all its glory.
