Egypt, more than any other country, gifts carry the spirit of a
land which is deeply steeped in history. Shops open from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. during the winter months. In
summer they are open longer. Bazaars and Souks such as Khan el Khalili
have more flexible hours.
is common practice in all bazaars and is expected, so the starting
price is always higher than the expected selling price. Haggle as
much as possible - stall owners enjoy the experience and might actually
offer you tea and other refreshments during the process!
