Just please note that a lot of the shops in the Khan Khalili area are closed on Sundays, so that would not be a good time to go.

well for the time table for each of the sites and the markets and even down town shops in Cairo..

the museum : 5.45 pm they will start closing the mummies rooms , the 2 rooms of king Tut at the 2nd floor ( the Mask and the jewelry rooms ) and then by 6 pm they won't sell any more tickets and by 6.30 pm they will clear the whole area..

the pyramids in Giza : by 4 pm they won't allow any one to enter the sphinx area and by 3.30 they won't sell any tickets for the whole area and if even you are inside the area and want tickets for the solar boat museum or any of the pyramids.and by 4.15 they close the whole area..

the old market is actually up till 3.00 am but that will be with 3 or 4 shops and most of the shops will start closing by 11.00 pm...and as the market is famous as well for it's cafe shops so these are open 24/7 unless it's the cleaning hours..

Hope that did helped you and wish you a great time in our beloved country Egypt

Thanks and best regards

Hi Tokyonights

now for the time being till end of April , pyramids close at 4 pm, last ticket sold at 3 pm

Museum close at 6:45 at that time it mean every one had to be out of the museum and doors close, while last ticket is sold at 3pm

about Khalili bazaar as Wendy mention not recommend to go in Sundays as most shops close, other days it is open since almost 10 or 11 am till 10 to max 11 pm. lot of coffee shops stay till late night

be aware that from 01st of May we will shift to summer time, and the clock will be advanced one hour ahead, this will advance alternativly the timing mentioned before to an hour ahead, so pyramids will close for example at 5 instead of 4 and last ticket will be sold at 4 instead of 3 and so on

wish you nice trip
