Soak up the atmosphere and pick out a souvenir at Khan Al-Khalili, a historic souk built in the 14th century. With a maze-like layout and artfully arranged shop fronts and stalls, the market caters largely to international tourists these days. Some areas, such as the gold and spice-selling districts, remain seemingly unchanged, with countless merchants all located close to one another, creating a striking visual effect and lending itself well to photography.

  • Was included in the course of the tour, but some time is about 40 minutes after the reservation was for Abou el-Sid so I doroppu_auto here. I was feeling was more than three hours until dinner time, but not enough at all. Walk the trail weaved maneuver was a blast. That tour, but I don't understand the fun of this town's main street and not to non-major Street will pressed just in case. Get back on the road and without warning, the ordinary to buy. You could buy cheaper than thought copper big Bon wanted to scrutinize carefully. We as well as how to care for more information. Great antique stores, old buildings, even just listening to the origin. To hear the price, what was a wanderer attack tourist destinations until now not too expensive either and the disappointment. Was El Fihawi Street drinking mint tea in the seat and maybe hookahs you here is where you will be confused. Watching people come and go, making fun of the vendor. There would still like to purchase it though, not through the alley is also a place where you want to go. You're going half-immersed soak. Taxi to move caught the car running better. Says will be car waiting for a high price.

  • A magical place, most famous over the world and respectful increasing year by year, that all refer to this place deeply into the heart of the ancient neighborhood in the Egyptian capital -- Khan El-Khalili. If you intend enjoying with or looking up a vital period in the Egyptian history, then you need to take a tour to that place, a walk through its streets and smallest roads. You will see ancient mosques and historical buildings. Never you can resist the magic of the small shops, coffee shops and restaurants which are existent thorough into the area.
  • Bazaars were a little bit different than what I thought.. There were so many people that walking peacefully around & watching was impossible. Also this place needs several hours of time to wonder it through because its so huge and oh yes so full of life! Will be going again, but with different schedule & attitude 👍
