I think this is a must in Cairo to see locals (and tourist ofcourse), to see the way they do commerce, to see a lot of stuff to buy (some wich are good quality, some are not). but be prepared, as it is quite chaotic,...More
The big bazaar is very crowded with people and goods. Colorful and could be noisy. I like it here because it has the ambience that you are now in the middle-east, the bargaining with the shop keepers is kind of fun.
Very busy and very narrow always streets , Be aware of the haggling and the continuous invitation from be aware of the haggling and the continuous invitation from shop owners and staff .

Loved shopping in these narrow alley ways, looking at vendors in their long traditional shirts, donkey carts bringing supplies. Some vendors are too pushy and bartering is a way if life here, but it is fun to shop for pottery, coppery, carpets, cloth or anything...More
One of the most annoying parts is bargaining for everything here. I would recommend Jordi’s place called Camel bazar. The prices are fixed and you can have everything from the bazaar on a reasonable price. It is placed on the second floor and just look...More
Dont be frightened. The Egyptians are really nice. A bit of banter with the shopkeepers goes a long way but ignore the freelancers who walk along with you. Pay about 2/3 asking price and everyone will be happy.
Weather you are an Egyptian or a tourist visiting Cairo. If you are not living in old Cairo, the visit to Khan AlKhalili is a must.
You will enjoy the ambiance the artwork the food the history the culture

What I did to go to Marsa Matruh . The safest and reasonably priced way to go from Cairo to Marsa Matruh . Is by coach I’m my situation I used Go Bus Vip Ticket was 200Lb each you get a small lunch box on the bus presented by the bus steward. I couldn’t understand the difference between the cheaper fair and VIP as seating was exactly the same and every body got a lunch box. The driver stopped about 2hrs from Marsa for a 45mintue hookah and coffee break the trip we left cairo 2am and arrived 9am. We picked up a Taxi from bus station to our hotel Jaz Almaza beach hotel the cost was 170.Lbs . Their is an airport but unfortunately it’s not open for domestic flight only for international chartered flights. Hopefully this feedback will help the next person. The resort is excellent and the beach is crystal clear. Good luck
