A glimpse of disappearing Cairo

A glimpse into the medieval past of Old Cairo that is fast disappearing under modernisation. Go with a guide or you will be swarmed!

I love going to khan el khalili as there are numerous shops that sell many Egyptian artifacts with very reasonable prices. I recommend that you negotiate the prices. There are several coffee shops there and the most famous is fishsway coffe shop which is one of the oldest. Naguib mahfouz coffe shop is another high end one. There are also... More

The goods they sell are so good and the souvenirs are just perfect. I didn't like how there isn't a fixed price for things and the idea that you have to bargain all the time. I also found it unsafe for people from different cultures who dress freely. Try to cover as much skin as you can before you go... More

Hi, This market is too busy and the goods on offer from the many shops are repetitive and very cheap tourist type. Nice coffee shops but other than that a good place to miss. It is very crowded, very dirty and rather inaccessible in this city of twenty three million people.

Visited one evening. It was fairly busy but not overcrowded. Lots to see and buy, but make sure you haggle..... The cafe's are a great way to watch the world go by.

Khan el khalili is one of the most amazing places to visit.. el mo'ez street and el huessein is also amazing. But keep your valuable stuff in safety. As the place maybe crowded or so. But overall its nice and safe place :)

A walk in moez street from khan alkhalili is your way to go. A lot of traditional souvenirs but you have to bargain. If they say 600 you have to start bargaining at 200. You will end up with 250
