There is no better way to soak up the real culture of a country than at its local market. The Khan el-Khalili is the largest souk in the world and is located in the heart of Cairo, not far from the Egyptian Museum. The Khan el-Khalili souk, runs right through the city and here you really will find everything. From fresh spices, jewellery, clothes, bongs to the typical souvenirs for tourists. Here you will also find stalls selling traditional Egyptian food and fresh tea.
Originating in the 14th century, this souk has been luring many itinerant traders and lusty shoppers from the Middle East and Africa since the 15th century.
