Egypt Bazaars





 © Copyright


In the Egypt bazaars is the same unwritten rule of the Arab world: the salesman asks for a price, the buyer offers half of it and the merchandise it sells with about 20% less than the asked price initially by the merchant. The negotiation is made not only in the luxury shops from the commercial centers but also in the Egypt bazaars, for the merchandise exposed on the booth. The biggest bazaar from the Egypt’s capital is Khan el – Khalili. This is the paradise of the amateurs of gold and silver jewelry, of perfumes, carpets, leather articles or small souvenirs (alabaster statues, papyruses, the traditional shisha – pipes with water and various flavors, etc). If you are not interested in buying something, don’t ask how much does an object costs because you will not get rid of the salesman who will be offended if you don’t appreciate the quality of his merchandise. Also, if you enter in a shop and you are served with tea or juice it doesn’t mean that you have to buy something. Such bazaars are everywhere, in small towns as well as in tourist resorts. Usually, these are open from 9 to 21. One of the Egypt bazaars is the Tentmakers bazaar, a traditional place where tent fabrics, printed materials colorful and fine appliqué are produced and sold. For the tourists that are looking for something more sophisticated there are also tent fabrics with pharaohnic motifs or pictorial scenes of red-glowing sunsets, birds or peasants. There the popular printed fabrics with blue or red ornaments that are used on the streets of Cairo can also be found here. You can also find arabesque and calligraphic ornaments available as wall hangings and pillowcases. Other Egyptian bazaars are the Souq Al-Attarin or Souq Al-Sagha.
