Nearly every Yemeni city, town, and village has some sort of shopping, usually in the form of a souk (market). Souks are attractions in themselves, and ideal places for visitors to learn the culture, language, and customs of Yemen all in one go. Souks can run daily, weekly, or seasonally. The jambiya (curved dagger), which is worn by men, is the most sought-out item among visitors and can be purchased on its own or with a case. Handmade belts and items made of silver can also be seen in many souks across the country. Jewelry made from gold and semi-precious stones is favored among female visitors.
