Soak up the atmosphere and pick out a souvenir at Khan Al-Khalili, a historic souk built in the 14th century. With a maze-like layout and artfully arranged shop fronts and stalls, the market caters largely to international tourists these days. Some areas, such as the gold and spice-selling districts, remain seemingly unchanged, with countless merchants all located close to one another, creating a striking visual effect and lending itself well to photography. Make Khan Al-Khalili part of your personalized Cairo itinerary using our Cairo trip planner.

  • Beautiful place to get souvenirs. I love the chess/backgammon sets there. Very well made in various sizes.
  • It is a wonderful place full of secrets. In the beginning you find the stands for the tourists but as you walk deeply you can discover curious places. Try to go out of the principal road..
