This street is a bustling maze of alleys, lanes and narrow gullies lined with shops, restaurants, hustlers and ever persistent shopkeepers. Despite its somewhat touristy vibe, it’s still a great place to experience the true flavor of Cairo and Egypt. Everyone is rushing, laughing, screaming and yelling and though it’s pretty exhausting to wade through the sea of shops, Khan-El Kalili is the best place to hang and watch life go by. There are some wonderful traditional coffee houses serving Arabic coffee and my favorite Hibiscus tea besides the ever accompanying Sheesha. After some wandering I discovered this old and popular coffeehouse named Fishawi that served up amazing coffee along with free Sheesha, where I also made friends with some jovial minded locals.
Spend a day with elephants-feeding,bathing and even painting them at the elephant safari at Dera Amer, Kukas. It's adventure camp behind Amber Fort that offers fantastic elephant,camel horse and jeep safaris organized by the resident Rajput family. Indulge in the high tea at the base camp , before the elephants take you on a sunset safari across the Aravali forest.
