Lots to see and good vibe at night. Plenty of walking and parking is far away. People sell the same goods and love to bargain, so dont buy at first glance. Always bargain. They enjoy it

If you are into "old town vibes" and want to see the activity please visit. It is a reminder of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and have lots of good restaurants to relax. Sit with the locals and enjoy peace of old world and ancient times.

It is the most spectacular view that it is hard to concentrate on the menu or your companions. I just loved the whole ambiance.

It's a must visit if in Cairo but is well designed for tourists. The food and items are well overpriced and different rates for locals in arabic and for tourists in English...especially Food. But it's buzzing with people.. full of lights & colors and mosques so quite an experience...so would recommend the visit.
