Cairo: Shopping

Mother Of All Cities

Cairo Shopping

A shopping holiday in Cairo can be an ordeal but is ideal for the bargain hunter. With its many Bazaars and markets, the chaotic nature of shopping in Cairo is an overwhelming experience, though approached with a sense of humour it can be great fun. Everything has a price in Cairo, though never a fixed one. One of the joys about shopping in Cairo is haggling over the price whether it be for jewellery, perfume or a bag of peaches. The custom of bartering for goods is a centuries old tradition as Cairo was once the world centre of trade due its connections to Africa, Asia and Europe and the same frantic entrepreneurism is still thriving today. So, if you enjoy haggling and have a good eye for a bargain a shopping holiday in Cairo will feel like paradise.
