The best place to feel the egyptian vibe and energy. I used to come here to buy souvenirs but I discovered after that I just love walking there, seeing people and drinking a juice or a tea at Sharkawy cafe.

This is a fabulous spot to see an old-world market. Fun for tourist to enjoy Egyptian culture. It's crazy busy at night but definitely a stop worth making.
