Dip beneath the surface of ‘the Khan’ to discover a wealth of ancient wonders. Khan el-Khalili Bazaar is the largest bazaar in Egypt, with over 900 stalls selling everything and anything from copperware, carpets, perfume, spice, gold, silver to hand-blown glass, camel-hair rugs, belly-dancing dresses, and sheeshas. It was established as a caravansarai in 1382 by the Emir Djaharks el-Khalili, enduring over the centuries to become the local shopping favorite. Be ferocious in your haggling, couple it with street smarts against petty thieves, and have the time of your life!
