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.

ツアーのコースに含まれていましたが、滞在時間は40分ほどで、その後にAbou el-Sidのディナーを予約してあったのでここでドロップ・アウトしました。ディナーの時間まで3時間以上ありましたが、全然足りない気分でした。縦横無尽に絡まった小道を歩くのは最高に楽しかったです。表通りだけだとこの町の面白さは分からないと思いますが、ツアーだと大きな通り以外には入らないように念を押されてしまいます。裏道に入... more »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.

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.
