    Visit Hammam Street, the main shopping district in As-Salt for over 150 years. Built between 1881-1884, Hammam Street is a pedestrian zone, paved to resemble the old main street. Walk Al-Eskafyeh Street, a short street that connects Hammam Street to Al-Khader Street. Eskafi means shoemaker in Arabic, where the role of the shoemaker doesn’t just exist in children’s books: he is still very much in business on the Al-Eskafyeh stairs, making and repairing shoes. As-Salt has preserved and supported its independent local business owners, holding on to its economic originality with different sweet shops, butchers, perfumeries, nuts shops, and spice shops. Enjoy free time to peruse all these shops, and snap up some souvenirs (at your own expense). Optional lunch at a local restaurant or home-made visit experience for an authentic meal.
