Part of the Damascus experience is allowing oneself to get lost meandering through the extensive souks. Everything from local artefacts and antiques to spices and nuts to scarves and carpets are sold everywhere. Prices are extremely depressed compared to western countries, so anything you purchase is a good deal. See the attached photos for some of the merchandise. For more photos check out the travelogue on the Souks of Damascus
