"Smell the Histroy of cairo" Khan el Khalili Tip by Saladinos
Khan el Khalili, Cairo: 84 reviews and 148 photos
If you r in Cairo then you will not miss the khan el Khalili area in Al Hussien district.
It use to be a center for commercial and trade interactions and the architecture of the place will show you this. Now it is still used for the same purpose but with different looks and type of goods.
You will go shopping, walking, eating, drinking, smoking shisha and my favorite is watching the different groups of people coming from all over Egypt and abroad in this area.
The mosques (Al Hussien) is one very important religious site for many Egyptians. They go there to pray and get the blessings of Al hussien who is the relative of the muslim prophet Mohammad.
Due to the 100s of years of trade theat included herbs and essance, the place has its unique smell that you might get addicted to.
Outside the mosques wear what you want but not very short so to avoid the parasetic touches of the kids and the big kids.
If you are planning to visit the mosques where the shrine is inside, then make sure to wear conservative clothes under your knees and ladies should get a hair cover as a respect for the place.
