When you plan to go there. Try to go after 5 pm. The weather and view is amazing. Best coffee is Najeeb Mahfouz in my opinion

Another large city market. Nothing remarkable about it except for its size and the repetition of products. If you are looking for quality, you won't find it here. If you like bargaining, this is a good place to test your skills.

This bazaar is so big that it feels like it doesn't end. It has so much stuff in it and you can literally find everything in it. May it be a mirror, statue, belly dancing outfit, spices, etc...It's a great place to shop for souvenirs....More

Did not have enough time to explore here. Could have spent half a day or more wandering the alleyways. Get away from the main thoroughfares to really find some treasures. Negotiating is acceptable here.

Very old bazaar. Has some very interesting architecture. If you can bargain, you can get some good deals. I recommend checking out the craftsman section for genuine, handmade Egyptian goods and not the cheap knockoffs pushed at some of the shops. Beware, the merchants can...More
