Camel Souk, Al Ain

2.7
Busy, loud, and often a little pungent, Camel Souk offers a fascinating glimpse into a specific aspect of traditional Arabic culture. Traders come to the market to buy and sell camels, usually through some intense bargaining. Feel free to walk around and observe the animals in their pens, from young ones to studs designed for breeding. The camels make for great photos, but be aware that traders may well demand money afterwards, so consider asking permission first. Women should dress modestly, so as to respect local customs.

  • Definitely worth a visit when you are in Al Al Ain. Very interesting and the staff were so helpful and friendly. A must see in Al Ain, very interesting.  more »
  • For my part, I have a rather bitter taste of the place. It is purely and simply a market with camels are on top of each other, hit for them to advance, the sellers are on the lookout for the deal so no transmission of knowledge, exchange, ... you really (too) feel the "business" spirit... it is certainly a must-see place but for my part I know I would not go back. Not even the urge to take pictures... just to quickly leave this place.
