The more exotic and specific spices are hidden away in the back. Can’t even imagine.

@Rebecca: The smells of this spice shop were pretty great!

What so many different things to choose from you better know what you need before you go or you could be there for hours.

We love the smells, colors, and feel of places like this.

@Hughes: Glad you enjoyed this panoramic experience!

@Kenan: And our guide told us that this shop just displayed the “regular” spices – there’s a whole section in the back of specialized spices.

@Amy: As an artichoke lover, I was pleasantly surprised to see dried artichokes here. Never had seen them before. We were told that the dried artichokes are boiled with water to make a sort of tea that is good for your stomach (I think).

Looks like I’m going to love your site even more. Even without scent, we can imagine aroma of the different spices in the shop. Amazing photo :)

It looks absolutely amazing. I’ve never been in one of these places and I would love to see one of these live. I bet it smells to die for. All those spices… :)

@Jackie: Thanks for your kind words about our blog and for your invitation to visit Cyprus. We already have plans to visit Bangladesh after this, so I’m afraid we’ll have to return to the region to visit Cyprus.

@Cam: Thanks!

@Kathy: Good question. When we used to have an apartment with a kitchen, we would always pick up spices, sauces, or other local specialties to bring home with us. We used to cook quite a lot. Actually, one of the hardest things we had to give away when we left our apartment in Prague was our spice collection – we had close to 100 spices from our travels.

These days, we don’t have a kitchen and are always on the road so we mostly look around and ask questions.

@Connie: Us too! Spice shops are some of our favorite places to visit when we travel.

@Margaret: It’s perhaps ironic that I’m reading your comment in a resort called “Six Senses” :) It was such a nice shop – also spent time in the back tasting the different varieties of coffee and dried fruits.

@Andi: No, we didn’t buy anything as we were at the beginning of our travels in Jordan and didn’t want to carry it all around the country. But, perhaps we’ll stop by on our way out of Jordan in ten days…and buy gifts for friends in our next stop (Bangladesh).
