Soak up the atmosphere and pick out a souvenir at Khan Al-Khalili, a historic souk built in the 14th century. With a maze-like layout and artfully arranged shop fronts and stalls, the market caters largely to international tourists these days. Some areas, such as the gold and spice-selling districts, remain seemingly unchanged, with countless merchants all located close to one another, creating a striking visual effect and lending itself well to photography.

A magical place, most famous over the world and respectful increasing year by year, that all refer to this place deeply into the heart of the ancient neighborhood in the Egyptian capital -- Khan El-Khalili. If you intend enjoying with or looking up a vital period in the Egyptian history, then you need to take a tour to that place, a walk through its streets and smallest roads. You will see ancient mosques and historical buildings. Never you can resist the magic of the small shops, coffee shops and restaurants which are existent thorough into the area.
Bazaars were a little bit different than what I thought.. There were so many people that walking peacefully around & watching was impossible. Also this place needs several hours of time to wonder it through because its so huge and oh yes so full of life! Will be going again, but with different schedule & attitude 👍
