A local market in Alexandria: Bustling Markets in 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.

Bakous: Public shopping.

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.

local open markets: Go with the crowd ...

The SOUQ as they call it is the market where you can find everithing you need ... from old watches to fresh fruits and groceries ...

What to pay As a tourist you pay more than a local but prices are still ok!
