    Go to the Khan El-Khalili Market or any city store: Don't buy anything from hotel gift shop

    by SumTingWong Written Jan 29, 2003

    If you want to buy post cards, gifts, or even small statues don't buy these things at your hotel. The hotels overcharge at an incredible rate. Everything that you can get at the hotel you can get in the market or at a local store for a lot cheaper.

    What to buy: Small ancient replica statues are cool, as well, all the toursit gifts are avalable.

    What to pay: depends on how much you buy, but not more than 200 EGY Pounds.

    This is an area of narrow alle which is stopped by dunkey-cart, small trucks and literally millions of people including worshippers in the mosques. So watch out!

    This is a part of Cairo, also known as 'Islamic Cairo'. The bazar area also houses some centuries old historic mosques and buildings.
