    The ne plus ultra of impractical souvenirs

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're looking for something that will be completely impossible to get into your suitcase, why not go for a readymade sheet-metal minaret? Available in a variety of styles: an example of the almost febrile eclecticism of the architecture of the Hadramawt.

    Souq: Shopping in town

    Gotta love the souqs in Arabia. I never seem to get enough of the colors and the smells...sounds like an acid trip right....Places like this would make Jerry Garcia trip in his grave.
    I'd liked the souq in tarim because it was not crowed and people were not falling over themselves to sell you things.

    What to buy: I would not buy the fish here. It's a little too far inland and seeing all the fishing laying out amongst the flies made me wonder a bit.
