Khan-El-Khalili

No visit to Cairo is Complete without a stop at the Khan El-Khalili bazaar, where you will be transported back in time to an old Arab souk. Shop owners calling you to their stalls, the scent of spices, the hustle and bustle of trade, and the many beautiful objects that can purchased will have you lost among alleys for hours. Put your haggling skills to the test when buying statuettes, spices, souvenirs, silver jewellery, t-shirts, galabiyyas, belly dancing costumes, or anything for that matter. When your shopping's done, dont miss out on a traditional cup of tea at the famous Fishawi's cafe.


Al-Hussein massjed

Located near the famous Khan el-Khalili bazaar in Cairo and as it was discovered during works on the mosques foundations in the 1900s on the remains of the Fatimid Caliphs cemetery in Cairo, the Al-Hussein mosque is considered as one of the holiest mosques in Egypt. It is usually the sanctuary where the Egyptian president and other dignitaries pray on special occasions. Most of the mosque was built around 1870; the panels on the mosques spectacular minaret date however to the 14th century. A more modern addition to the mosque are the large Teflon canopies that open to provide shade for worshippers who come to the mosques square for Friday prayer.
