I loved it here, so much to see, so many choices, and the sales people were not too pushy, and always included a little gift which was a nice touch. you should bargain here, but you will find pretty much what you are looking for.

Immense market with varied merchandise and people. Several good eateries and tea houses. Offer 50% and pay no more than 75% of first price you're given. We enjoyed the energy and the sights.

Nice place to visit if you are in Cairo. All traditional items are available with reasonable prices. Don't forget to visit the surrounding coffee shops to taste a lot of drinking varieties.

Easiest way to get here from Four Seasons First Residence hotel? I was in Cairo with a tour guide and he discouraged us to buy here. I've been travelling around Egypt and will return here in a couple of days and would like to do souvenir shopping.
