local open markets, Alexandria
On a few occasions during my stay I found myself wondering a local market, not sure of the name, but I am sure there are similar markets throughout Alexandria.
They were alive, with local people doing their shopping, men sitting outside cafes smoking their "hubbly bubblies", shop keepers trying to encourage you into to buy their goods.
This was really fun and I found some gret bargains here.
What to buy: Anything from food, to gold and jewellery.
What to pay: Try a nd bater your price.
It's a public Souq.
It represents a true pic about the status of a considerable number of the Egyptian people, who buy everything for thier life from this market.
What to buy: Fruits, vegitables, desserts, food , animals and everything.
What to pay: It's clear that you are going to pay less than any other place.
Address: Bakous.Related to:
