One of the best things about travelling is to trawl the marketplaces of wherever you end up. Marketplaces are like melting pots of culture- vibrant jumble of textures, exciting tastes and aromas, hawkers and customers bargaining and storekeepers having a shouting match! It doesn't matter what's being sold- arts and crafts, jewellery, fresh produce or antiques. Local markets often reveal a more authentic side o a destination. And whether you are a souvenir hound or a foodie, visiting a local market to shop is an essential part of a trip.

The world's best souks are as much about sensory overload as they are about finding a bargain. If you are looking for the genuine bazaar flavor for your shopping, you can bet your top and bottom penny you'll score big at one of these one-of-a-kind markets around the world.
