No trip to Cairo comes to an end without a trip to one of the oldest markets in the world, Khan al Khalili market. Built-in Islamic Cairo, this market comes to life at night. Pedestrian friendly market with a lot of stores to find everything from lamps, sheesha, gold and antique. You need at least 2 trips to enjoy the market and Friday is one of the best days to visit the market. There are a lot of beautiful cafes and street food corners in the market to take a break while exploring the market. There is a lot of history related to the market and a walking tour thru the market is a good idea.
