Souq Twaheen


This little market in the old quarter of Tabuk is where the local Bedouin come to get their black and white goat-hair tent covers and all the mod cons a modern Bedouin needs, including canvas cooler bags and gas camp stoves. This is also a great place to grab some of those fabulously patterned rugs, cushions and camel saddles many of them furnish their tents with.
