Walked down here as part of a tour, wasn't interested in shopping but more the ancient architecture of many of the mosques and other sites. Could easily spend a few hours here.

If you're into Cairo and it's atmosphere then this is one more place for you to visit. The mixture of history and shops and noise etc is special. Don't miss Qaluoon complex. Again, and unfortunately as most attractions in Cairo, interpretation is poor

This place buzzes of a night time with narrow streets churning with locals and tourists alike looking for bargains. Well worth the experiece but keep an eye out for lunatic shopkeepers on motorbikes.
