The narrow alleys leading to the section of the market that sells souvenirs.

The secret to getting a good deal is to bargain on the price. Seeing foreigners, the locals tend to raise the price of their goods 3 or more times. So always haggle down the price. Offer them 1/3 or 1/2. And then walk away if they don't want to sell. They will usually call you back. And if they don't, that means its already a good price.
