The Old Market Of Khan El-Khalili

The Khan El-Khalili is the Middle East's most interesting bazaars.



Named after Prince Jaharkas Al-Khalili, one of the powerful khanMamluke Princes in the 14th century, the bazaar is famous for it's unusual, typically oriental souvenirs and handmade crafts. This traditional market's Medieval atmosphere, together with the labyrinthian streets, gives visitors a glimpse into what medieval markets once were like.

The bazzar has bountiful cafes, restaurants, shops, and a large number of vendors and buyers. The Hibiscus, Karakare, Helba, or any of the various typical Egyptian beverages offer to visitors a real taste experience. Smokers can try the Shisha, or water pipe.





Every visitor can safely enjoy the walk through the narrow streets of Khan El-Khalili. We strongly recommend visiting this vivid bazaar, but keep in mind that in open traditional markets, the prices are not fixed; remember to bargain (haggle) to get the best price. The Khan El-Khalili Bazaar is a place where art and commerce come together to give a unique and remarkable, harmonious experience.
