Egypt is a wonderland of shopping opportunities. Of course, there are the famous bazaars such as the Khan el-Khalili, but then there are also thousands of unusual stores scattered about the country, and especially in Cairo, though some products are better purchased perhaps from the locale from which they are produced, such as alabaster in Luxor. However, Cairo provides a huge variety of everything from antiques to fine clothing and especially jewelry.In some shops, you must haggle while in others the price will be set. Which type of store provides the best possible deals depends both on the shop itself and the haggling ability of the buyer an seller. Frequently though some of the best deals at the best consistent quality is found in stores with fixed prices. For example, one might haggle over a mother-of-pearl box in the Khan el-Khalili and wind up paying a fairly low price but for an inferior products, while in a fixed price shop, one might end up paying more, but for a far superior mother-of-pearl box.The purpose for this section is to provide Tour Egypt readers with information both on how to shop in Egypt, as well as to enlighten them on how to tell what makes various products better or worse from the standpoint of quality. Of course, for those not traveling to Egypt, our Virtual Khan el-Khalili, Tour Egypt's online shop provides many quality products found in Egypt at reasonable prices.General Shopping:HagglingMore on Haggling Specific Types of Products:AlabasterTricks of the Trade: Purchasing Egyptian AlabasterAlabaster: Egypt's Rock of AgesAppliqué on the Street of the TentmakersBasketry, Ancient and ModernBelly Dancing CostumesThe Boozer's Guide to EgyptEgyptian BrassBuying Egyptian Cotton Products in EgyptJewelryBuying Gold Jewelry in EgyptMashrabiya ScreensMother-of-PearlMusicMusical InstrumentsPapyrusPart 1: Historical PapyrusPart II: Purchasing Modern Papyrus ArtPerfume Bottles, Hand Made General and Specific Shops, StoresAl KhatounAladin Incens and HandicraftsArkadia Shopping MallBazaar of the TentmakersBashayer and Om El SaadBooks and Bookshops in EgyptBooksellers MarketClothing Stores in CairoThe Dates Market Sells EverythingFair Trade Center, LuxorFind great shopping at the Khan Misr ToulounFirst Mall in Cairo, EgyptThe Khan el-Khalili, Egypt's Most Famous MarketMore on the Khan el-KhaliliTour The Khan el-KhaliliLehnert & Sandrock (Books and Photographs)SednaouiSounds of Cairo Music ShopSouq al-Goma'a (Friday Market)Wekalat Al-Balah Fabric Market.
