They smile and curse you in Arabic, walk through and enjoy the sights but avoid handing them your money and save it for areas that want you there.

Enter via Damascus Gate, you are immediately in awe of this forte. Narrow streets, cobbled floors, take you back to a simpler time. Many street vendors, restaurants, souvenir shops, in-between keep an eye out for historic landmarks, they are all over the place. Of course,...More

The Muslim Quarter, in the northeaster sector of the Old City of Jerusalem, is the largest, most populous and most chaotic of all Jerusalem's Quarters. The frenetic market is the focal point of the Quarter. Actually there are a number of markets but they all...More

It's a dirty place with rude people. Vendor are only nice to you at the beginning, then if you say no to their prices or cancel the negotiations they insult you and tell you to go back to your country. It's quite funny how they...More

Part of the old city in Jerusalem, the Muslim Quarter has beautiful narrow streets with shops selling food, spices as well as Chinese merchandise. Unfortunately its very dirty. The food smelled good but I didn't try it. Their spices looked interesting , again I didn't...More

On the narrow streets there are just shop stalls on both sides and there are stall roofs that prevent day light so it's dark. The sellers can be rude. I was ok to stay for couple of nights but would never like to live there.

I was in the Muslim quarter yesterday, and am still shaken. In the distance of 300 meters we were verbally abused by vendors when we did not want to enter their stores or otherwise engage them. Comments from them: “Go back to Germany you Jews”,...More

This is like the bustle of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, but with a more mixed pot of people. The food, people and the shops are amazing. There's many Christian and Orthodox Jews that go through making it feel like a bygone era where all...More

This is kind of funny and ironic but a lot of the path where Christ travelled flows through here and so it is a must do for the Christian tours. We had some amazing hummus at a muslim restaurant that I also much enjoyed

“I yelled ‘please help me!’ and they just spat at me,” said Banita of the surrounding Palestinian shopkeepers whom she said looked on and did nothing as Palestinian terrorist Muhannad Halabi attacked her and her family in an alleyway near Lion’s Gate in the Old City. The Banitas’ two-year-old son was also lightly injured in the attack. Their infant girl was unharmed. She said that one of them slapped her and another laughed in her face and told her to “drop dead” when she told him she’d give him a million shekels if he helped her get away with her two babies. **See how Arab shopkeepers stand by while this woman cries for help - no one even bothers to save her two young children sitting in their strollers within reach of the murderer, or perform CPR on her husband who lies dying or dead on the ground. The Jewish man (seen wearing black and white) who ran to her rescue, Nehemia Lavi HYD was killed by the terrorist while the shopkeepers watched. Video: youtube watch?v=7FRtjBjvMbY Best not to go to the Muslim quarter if you are Jewish or even 'look Jewish'. Remember the non-Jewish CBS reporter who was sexually assaulted during the Tahrir square demonstrations in Egypt?
