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.

Khan Al-Khalili Reviews
Μια αγορά καθαρά τουριστική που σε γενικές γραμμές δεν είναι κάτι το ιδιαίτερο! Υπάρχουν κ άλλες υπαίθριες αγορές που ψωνίζουν οι Αιγύπτιοι κ είναι πολύ καλύτερες! Όσοι πάτε να κάνετε πολλά παζάρια γι... more »A purely touristy market which in general is not something special! There are other flea markets that the Egyptian K shop is much better! Those who go to do a lot of haggling because the prices they say are always well above the value of the products and you understand that with the easy fall of price!!!!
Cairo old downtown. Many shops that sell everything’s. Many restaurants & cafes that serve local food. Nice to visit it before sunset as it becomes different at night. more »
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 👍
