As coming from Istanbul, we felt ourselves at home here with the ambiance and music. We ate falafel and chavirma and they were delicious. If you want to taste Arabic cuisine in an elegant restaurant, Han el Halili will be a good choice.

Well it's your crowded bazaar oriental style place. You could expect loud and crowded streets, shops which is the allure anyway. Sit at one of the coffee shops at the streets, enjoy the tea and atmosphere. Evenings are beautiful. There is a bookbinder called '...More

It's interesting to walk around, but most of the stuff on sale our trinkets that I don't think are worth it. Good to go with a guide. Just spend 15 min walking around and that's all you need.

It's an average place, locals charge so much to tourists, it's always good to go with some Egyptian. Try to enjoy and don't fall prey to vendors.

Interesting marketplace. You must visit it to get the flavour (and odour) of Cairo. You will find all kinds off merchandising, from gold (mostly 14k), carpets, spices and fake brand name clothing. Once I asked if the "Levis" pants I was about to buy were...More

Here is a place you go to see locals hang out and shopping in a bazaar environment. So when you go to a bazaar, like any bazaar anywhere in the world, don't expect a shopping mall environment. I was lucky an Egyptian friend brought me...More
