Khân el Khalili, le grand souk du Caire, est mondialement connu. En plein cœur du Caire islamique, il est délimité au sud par les mosquées Al-Azhar et Al-Hussein et au nord par la mosquée Al-Hakim (1010), entre les deux portes Bab Al-Futuh (porte de la conquête) et Bab An-Nasr (porte de la victoire) dans l'enceinte construite en 1087 pour défendre la ville fatimide d'Al-Qahira (Le Caire).
This bazaar is amazing! There’s no other word for it, it is so fun to walk in and out and around and through all the different paths through the market and looking at all the different things each person is trying to sell. Every time I travel to Egypt, I make sure to stop by here to buy gifts and souvenirs for my friends back home. It really is a unique place with the market inside surrounded by restaurants and coffee shops and hookah bars. It’s always full of really nice people and children and there’s always things to look at and watch while here. You will not be bored. It is also well priced for being such a touristy area.
A very crowded and narrow market full of vendors who mostly sell cheap Chinese stuff. Each and every vendor starts the price at 250% of what he is willing to sell it for. So just make sure you divide the price by 50% and then take another few bucks off before you buy ANYTHING. some people compare it to the Grand Bazar in turkey but I think it's absolutely not similar. This is more like a bootleg version of Grand bazaar. Food is good and feel free to enjoy it.
Amazing place. The old Islamic Cairo. A place like no other in the world where you can see the beautiful Islamic architecture and decorations and so much stories to by hear about
Love this place. Ancient and timeless beauty. Best place to shop for gold and souvenirs. Enjoy a drink of lemon and mint juice on one of the terraces and watch the Cairo scene pass you by.
A good place to shop some souvenirs for your loved ones. You can also satisfy your taste buds by trying some local food in the nearby restaurants.
Best place to haggle on all your tourist souvenirs. There are a wide range of shops: fine jewelry, spices, home decor, to cheap trinkets. It is a bit busy to leave your bags in the car. Some of the side alleys have nice shops. It is relatively safe just wind your items when the crowd gets thick. There is an ATM in the market. Many shops do not to credit cards.
Really hard sales, lots of hecklers. On the bright side didn't get pickpocketed or mugged even in the poor side. Selection of goods is better at more dedicated specialized shops elsewhere. All in all not worth visiting. Especially when you need to brave the Cairo traffic to get here. Would not recommend.
A must go place in Cairo. This bazar has everything from souvenirs to jewelry to household things at very cheap price and you can bargain. I like the Papyrus paintings which are cheaper than anywhere else. These paintings are illuminated in the dark and look so cool.
Cairo at it's best. The market is located at the heart of the city. Easily accessible by taxi or by bus. Shop all the Egyptian antiques. Wide variety. Good food options outside the market. Be wary of pick pocketers.
Amazing Bazaar true to its name. You can buy a lot of cheap souvenirs and other items. This place is full of people and variety of shops. You can bargain and bargain well. At times 1/4 is a good price to start with or how I do is to pay what I am comfortable for. There are small cafes and restaurants in this area and they serve tea, turkish coffee and local salt/sweet pancakes. Keep the basic security of your luggage, thats true for any place and here too. You won't be run behind by shop owners while haggling. Its healthy bargaining that happens here. At times people will push you to come inside their shops. Completely your choice, decide based on what they have put outside. A must visit place while in Cairo!
It was a unique experience. I'm not a fan of bargaining still I enjoyed my time there. Quote a price that is lower than what you'd expect to pay and make your way up till you get a deal. If you are lucky you'll be able to get it at a lower price than what you expected to pay initially. If bargaining and shopping is not your thing, then there are plenty of food outlets around which offer street food and beverages.
A lively Bazaar filled with souvenirs and local craft goods. You can get clothing, art, brass carvings, and any number of things from the vendors here. Prices are reasonable and can be negotiated. Better to cross the street and go to the local market where prices are much lower! Worth a visit when in Cairo. It's an easy taxi ride away from Tahrir Square.
Visit this place during the sunset, and see it's beautiful chaos both in the daylight and in the evening. You can get lost in its beautiful alleys. Good place for souvenirs if you are good at heavy bargaining
A historical street, with lots of historical buildings. There is A lot of walking, shopping, sight seeing and eating involved. It's very crowded on weekends and at night. Very hard to park, so it's better you use public transportation on your way. Take care of your wallets.
Good place to buy cheap cool stuff and clothes that represent Egypt. Just my advice go really early like in 3 or 2 in the afternoon its kinda hot but its not crowded so you can go throw it really fast and see everything you want.
