What to buy: Khan el-Khalili is the right place for buying a lot of things, from water pipes to textiles, from traditional Egyptian clothes to small souvenirs, from spices to papyruses.

Here you'll find the widest collection of all kind of items, but what I was looking especially were the traditional Egyptian sweets.

And I was not disappointed. There were only 3 days left until the Ramadan time and I found a wide range of dried fruits (the apricots are the best), but also other types of sweets based on peanuts, sesame and walnuts.
