    Al-Hussein Square (Midan Hussein)

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Midan Hussein is the square in the middle of Islamic Cairo between Al-Azhar Mosque and the Mosque of Sayyidna al-Hussein. Ii is a popular meeting place for the locals. The square is fairly large lined up with some palm trees and on one end, towards Khan el Khalili market, wits small restaurants and cafes. If you grab some time to sit in one of them, this place can be the right one for soaking the flavor of Egyptian life.

    This liveley square, which is the jump off point for groups for the market is a great place to people watch. All the herds of tourists are quite entertaining. Don't go to the cafes in the square, well just know they charge 2 to 3 times as much as ones just 20 meters away.
