The feat looks near impossible yet somehow, they always manage to avoid disaster. Khan el Khalili is undeniably charming and provides an unforgettable experience wandering through a busy Middle Eastern bazaar.
Nearly anything imaginable can be found within its busy alleys, and of course, some unexpected treasures await. Shopping around for a deal in Khan El Khalili is easy; comparing prices is a snap when there are so many vendors from which to choose.
There are so many unique things to be discovered, that to pass through too quickly almost certainly means missing something remarkable. The most easily identifiable landmark at the edge of Khan el Khalili is the enormous Al Hussain mosque, one of the most beautiful holy sites in all of Egypt.
Its gothic revival architecture makes it instantly recognizable, and the square outside the mosque is a good place to begin your journey. The cafes in the area are in beautiful old buildings with geometric wood paneling, typical of Islamic architecture.
