Loved taking the horse carriage with our dedicated driver Mohammad. Going thru the downtown markets was a very unique experience. Did not like the aggressiveness of the vendors at the sites. Makes you not want to buy anything.

Uber And Kareem don’t work here. No delivery apps either. It’s a very quiet city. Foreigners (Really anyone who doesn’t speak Arabic) are charged double-triple the prices for food/attractions.
