An incredible experience of culture, colors, flavors, sounds and feelings. It is well worth getting a local guide and visiting this amazing Egyptian market!

This is a major bazaar and a major tourist attraction. It was originally the site of of the mausoleum known as Saffron Tomb which is over 100 old.

Bargain bargain bargain is the rule here. Whatever they quote, you should get it in at least half of that price. I picked up tons of stuff from here and it can be fun if you like window shopping (there are no windows though :D)...More

Loved going here, so amazing to see different cultures and how other people live. Beware though that these shop owners capitalize on making you uncomfortable to buy from them (this is anywhere you go to shop in Egypt honestly). They will traipse you all over...More

One of the most incredible places on earth. The narrow passages lined with vendors for miles and miles are breathtaking. You can find anything in this place, or have it made for you.

The Khan is exciting, colorful, and fun. People are friendly, here, and you'll find great prices on almost everything, especially if you're willing to bargain. Best to catch a ride there, taxi, Uber, or private driver, because parking is REALLY far from the Khan entrance.

While you can pick up souvenirs at every tourist site in Egypt, those places can be more expensive and lack variety. In Khan al-Khalili, there are numerous shops selling similar things so you can negotiate a good bargain or go to another shop. The whole...More

Besides visiting the pyramid, this would have to be the second best place I enjoyed visiting in Egypt. I would recommend going during the evening as it's much cooler (I went end of May) than in the afternoon... and I can't imaging trying to bargain...More
