Also known as Al-Thumairi Souq (because it’s along Thumairi Street) and Al-Zel Souq, the Deerah Souq is located in the old part of the city near the Al Masmak Fort. It is famous for its gold souq and antiques souq sections.
Hundreds of little shops show a plethora of product that ranges from carpets, gold, silver, souvenirs, traditional clothes and props, antiques, and even furniture.
Most shop owners speak some English, so this souq is very tourist-friendly. Hop from shop to shop and don’t be afraid to bargain.
In my opinion, this is not only one of the most popular Riyadh attractions, but it is also the most interesting souk I visited there since you could see a glimpse of history through the many antique artifacts being sold there.
If you can only visit a souq in Riyadh, make sure it’s this one!
