    wander around the Khan-Al-Khalili bazar in Islamic Cairo. You'll be amazed by the overwhelming amount of what's on sale. The place is also littered with monumental mosques (the Al-Hussein mosque is in the pic), so there's a lot to see and do.

    12.Prior to 1087, Cairo was not really much of a fortified city, having sun dried brick walls, though this weakness had demonstrated itself on occasions. That year, Badr ad-Din el-Gamali, the visor of El-Mustansir, employed three Syrian brothers from Edessa to build of stone the three main gateways of the Fatimid wall, improving city’s fortification. One of these three massive gates is Bab Zuwaila. http://www.touregypt.net/babzuwayla.htm

    Khan al-Khalili Bazaar

    A fascinating jumble of laneways and passages packed full of tiny shops. I did quite a bit of shopping in here. Follow the street along and you'll also find a local market where there are less tourists.

    The largest bazaar in the world. Just let yourself loose and go on a shopping spree here, but remember to bargain hard - it's a very interesting experience.

    do not go only to tourists' places,although there are so many places to see(and beautiful mosques);try to get lost in the very old city(al-qahirah al-qadimah),people are very nice and friendly

    Khan el Khalili is one of Old Cairo's must seen. Please allow yourself to dive deep into the smaller allies inside, not just the main entrance. The magic is all inside. Fishawy is amazing, and dont forget to bargain properly. First reduce by 70% and walk away :)
