If you want to impress at the artful skill of bargaining, make sure to start at half of what the shop owner has quoted and pay around 75 percent of the original price. However, modern souqs such as Souq Al-Bahar are less likely to fall for your bargaining tactics due to expensive overheads. Continue reading The Best of Souq Shopping in Dubai
