There’s absolutely nothing in Cairo like exploring the enormous shopping labyrinth of Khan El Khalili, the city’s largest souk (market) that has preserved much of its original structure since its days as a famous medieval bazaar. Tourists and Egyptians alike arrive at this densely populated maze of streets and alleyways to find all sorts of gifts, including Egyptian antiques, fine handmade crafts  and spices.

There are lots of treasures in Khan El Khalili that make great gifts. Be on the lookout for alabaster pyramids and statues.There are also several shops that sell quaint jewellery boxes, backgammon and chess boards made with mother of pearl designs.
There are several stores that sell Egyptian antiques, including lighting fixtures, movie posters and old books.

El Fishawy Café

Shopping in Khan El Khalili can be exhausting and overly stimulating. If all of the shopping has left you weary, and you’re looking for a nice mint tea and apple shisha, El Fishawy Café is just the place to do that. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for the past 250 years, this mirror-laden alleyway café has hosted dozens of notables including Egyptian literary legend Naguib Mahfouz. During the evenings, you might see oud players, poetry readings or women offering henna tattoos.
