About Searching for Bargains at Khan el-Khalili in Cairo
The Egyptian capital is home to one of the most ancient market places in the world. In action since 1382, this market is known as the Khan where bargains happen on countless items- garments, jewelry, food, antiques, quaint souvenirs, spices- to name a few. Quite naturally, this is a noisy place with buyers and sellers reaching the top of their vocal chords. You can check out both the northern and southern section of the market and pick up what you like at the best deal. And if need some respite from the noise, hit the Fishawi Cafe, frequented by the intellectuals once or the mosque nearby.
