Like every old city Cairo has its big market with hundreds of stores across many narrow streets. Some streets specialize in a particular commodity, like clothes or weighing scales etc. UNESCO has recognized this market as a historical heritage site
Khan El Khalili is an amazing life tme experience. The shops are full with wonderful gifts both historical & others. The beauty of the stones & accessories are beyond imagination.

Love walking around and having all senses involved: varied colors, smells and tastes, people speaking in numerous languages and varying textures of different cloths? This is the place!
Mind you, some people may feel repelled by the "active" selling attitude of some vendors. Not my...More
This is a place where you will feel the beating heart of Cairo. A place that is almost 1000 years old with the smell of spices all over the place and always crowded and full of life. A great experience and a history relived.
Went here on our last night and really did not regret it - even if we do run out of money having haggled for some great pashminas.
Felt really safe even after walking way off the beaten track to find an ATM
Great place at...More
You could spend days wandering around this traditional market area. We only had an hour or two on the City Tour which was not enough so we came back later. We also were there mid-morning on the City Tour but nighttime is the best time...More
When we needed our guide the most he wasn't there. Lol. Told us all roads lead home so we should just walk around and enjoy it. All ok but the shop owners just don't allow one to enjoy the experience... they're just too full on....More

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
