Khan El Khalili
Khan el-Khalili, a unique blend of bazaars that is now usually called 'El Khan', named for the great Caravansary. The market was built in 1382 by the Emir Jarkas el-Khalili in the heart of the Fatimid City. Together with Al-Muski market to the west, they comprise one of Cairo's most important oriental shopping areas. But the more, they represent the market tradition which established Cairo as a major center of trade.
Egypt has always been famous for its handicrafts. Carpets and appliqués are one of the most wonderful crafts to look for in Cairo. The best natural showcase for that art work is the “Tentmakers Bazaar” located outside Bab Zuwayla. The appliqué tents are typically Cairene, used for weddings and funerals. (You don’t have to buy a whole tent, as appliqué comes as cushion covers as well.)
Diwan - Book Store
Located at ZAMALEK, Diwan is home to Cairo's largest collection of English-language books. It offers the latest works of British and American writers at a decent price and is thus a magnet for book-loving expatriates, to whom this shop came as a real boon. There's even a café which may not quite be a literary salon but at least serves good coffee.
