Best Shopping in Heliopolis and Nasr City
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Cairo team
You only live once in Egypt, before being mummified and consigned to a sarcophagus for the rest of eternity, so why not seize the day and shop like there's no tomorrow in one of Cairo's ancient bazaars or modern shopping malls?
If Cleopatra were alive today, there's little doubt she would be a shopaholic, and Cairo's markets and malls would more than satisfy her hunger for a bargain. The authentic Egyptian shopping experience takes place in Cairo's traditional bazaars, such as 14th century Khan Al Khalili, where bargaining is a way of life; don't be afraid to haggle!
