One of the best areas in Egypt - Cairo you can purchase an amazing authentic handmade souvenirs and get a traditional Egyptian tea in Alfeshawy Cafe which is over 300 years ago built since Automans Era. Egypt is Fantastic forget about Covid in this land and there is a lot of touristic groups there.

There are so many markets around the city - this one is not for the faint of heart - the merchants do follow you - and do not take "no" or "there is no way that is going through customs" - as an answer. We wanted to find authentic prayer beads but will end up buying elsewhere. Exhausted from saying no so many times or just ignoring (which seems harsh but ended up the easiest). If someone asks where you are from and you answer, wow - you will get an instant friend. It is dirty - but you should see it. Just go with a guide. Many areas were really cool and many were, um, not. Some are shady (creepy) and some are young (the area with the photoshop backgrounds where you can grab a soda and watch people prepare for prayers).

I love Khan Al-Khalili. It is Egypt as it is, full of hustle and bustle. It is one of my MUST stops every year. Yes is is dirty and the vendors will do anything to sell you something but that is Egypt. I love the people and if you show respect to them, they will treat you with the same respect. Western people are maybe shocked. If you are over sensitive leave you kids at home. Also think about it, in all Middle East and Mediterranean cultures life does start when it is dark. And if you object to medal detectors and checking your purse, think about it - it is for your own safety. Will go again and again, see you in July 2021.

Stay away! Went with my 10 year old daughter thinking we would browse & possibility go to a historical coffee shop. Well is is not what happened . Just to get into the place your bag is check and your body scannned. From that moment it was like something from the twilight zone! Weird, freaky “people” everywhere forcing you to buy cheap junk. You can say no because they don’t listener rescpect. My10 year old daughter has creepy old men mouthing perverse things to her suggestively . A bunch of peodiphiles!! , My daughter had this even stuck in her head for days. Keep away,not worth it and nevr take your daughters here. Then there’s the smellls. Everyone smokes ,mixed in with car pollution,and even more incense on top of the stinky piss & defacated Stay Away and go to museum gift shop they have practically same thing’s in
