Credit cards

Could any one tell me which payment method is best to use in the souks and can you use credit cards?

You can use credit cards or debit cards - sometime they add 1% to the cost if you use a card.

You could carry a wad of cash with you, which will be safe but not as convenient, especially if you don't know how much you are going to spend.

Also if you pay by card the item will be insured as soon as you have it

If you are buying small/cheaper items, like spices and nik naks, then cash is best but for things like gold then with a credit card you have the advantage of insurance as mentioned above.
