Buzzing with the activities of buying and selling, Khan
al-Khalili is one of the largest markets in the world. It is
situated within Islamic Cairo, a World Heritage Site that attracts
travellers and locals alike. This is the best place to soak up the
colour of Cairo and to people-watch. Traders have been bargaining
in these alleys since the 14th century and it is possible to buy
almost anything, from exotic perfume bottles to everyday Arabic
clothing. On the northern corner of the bazaar is the Mosque of
Sayyidna al-Hussein, one of the holiest Islamic sites in Egypt.
