    Stall at Ramleh station: Postcards

    by TheLongTone Updated Jan 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I spent a surprising amount of time looking for postcards of Alexandria. It's much in Alex's favour that there are very few shops aimed only at tourists, and such establishments tended to have only generic Pharonic-Wonders-Of-Egypt cards. I'm under strict orders to send my boys a postcard from everywhere I visit, so views of Alex had to be hunted down.

    I eventually stumbled across a stall at Ramleh station that had a good selection of pictures of Alex landmarks like the library or the fortress of Quait Bey, all for a bargain 50 piastres each.

    This provided one of those moments when one's faith in human nature, which Egypt can be seriously eroded, is reaffirmed in spades. I'd misunderstood the price, thought they were a slightly steep but not excessive 5 LE and chosen four cards, and was surprised to get a stack of grubby notes given back to me in exchange for my 20. A sharp trader would have read me and capitalised on the situation. I had to tell the man his cards were too cheap. A refreshing inversion of the normal state of affairs.

    Green Plaza Mall: Shop and dine al fresco

    by Tijavi Written Aug 15, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whoever named this mall Green Plaza would have meant to capitalize on the mall's ambiance - stores and restaurants arranged around gardens in an outdoor setting. One of the great things to do here is to sit on the many caf├ęs around the mall and see Alexandria's youth go malling and entertain themselves with the loads of entertainment options - bowling alleys, snooker hall, a funfair, and cinemas among others. These are in addition to mall staples of clotheshops and groceries. The place also has Hilton hotel, and a somewhat tacky Roman-inspired convention hall (for wedding receptions, too?).

    The mall is located in Smouha, a suburb along the Agricultural Road to Cairo. Aside from taxi, you could take the minibus to the mall from Midan Saad Zaghloul in downtown Alexandria. It is also close to the airport in Smouha.

    The Green Plaza: Shop or sit

    by XandriaUK Updated Jan 8, 2005

    The Green Plaza is a relatively new addition to Alexandria, situated 10 minutes from Alexandria International Nozha Airport. It is made up by the Hilton hotel, shops a cinema and numerous outdoor cafes and restaurants. The Green Plaza is always quite a busy place full of young people and families, especially on a thursday night but it has a calm atmosphere. There is not a lot to do there but sit and watch people go by, but it is safe and clean and perhaps a good introduction to people who are a bit wary of busy areas.

    What to buy: A supermarket which sells most of the foods that you would normally find, in your home supermarkets, plus the traditional cheeses, meats and cakes of Egypt.

    Clothes and shoe shops

    Pizza, chinese, and donut shops, plus more traditional kebab shops

    Aggressive Vendors: Port Area outside the exit from the ship

    by windoweb Written Apr 25, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All I can say - be prepared to play the game. There are negotiations for every souvenir item here at the vendor area by the ship and in the city of Alexandria at the local bazaar area.
