All the cheap and cheesy souvenirs from across Egypt in one convenient location. Unless you are looking for a decorative sheesha, in which case you are in the right place, you are better off buying your souvenirs from a historical site so you can tell the recipient that you bought it at the pyramids or in the valley of the...

If you seek for a cheap things to buy/eat, that;s a good place. But don't complain about the quality... Lots of people there so it's not easy to get through it sometimes. The sellers invite u all the time to visit their shops and buy sth. If interested, bargain a lot a lot! You will always hear trippled or doubled... More

This was a good time. Went evening and it's full of life, the cafe we went was open to on other cafes. The live music & people like to live with enjoying whatever is available. Be open minded to their differences. It could be amazing times.

A fun market to walk around in, very carefully and not alone, to see a typical sampling of bazaar goods.

This market could be a nice place to visit if the harassment from the people that work there was much less. They really don't let you enjoy since they all try to make you enter to their shops where afterwards they don't let you get out. They give tourists really high prices for things that are very low quality. We... More
