The souq in Aleppo is the best souq I have seen in the Middle East. We ended up buying so much here because of the high quality of the merchandise and simply the nice atmosphere of the souq. The other nice thing was that there was not much hassle here. If you don't want something, Syrians won't hound you until you buy it. However, you still need to be careful not to take the first price they give you as you still can be overcharged.
