Old Market, Sharm El Sheikh

3.3
#3 of 17 in Shopping in Sharm El Sheikh
Take a break from the flashier side of the resort city and delve into its more established commercial core at Old Market. The set of stalls, stores, and places to eat contrasts with the city's better-known resort lifestyle. And while the market largely gears itself toward international tourism, scenes of authentic daily life remain prevalent in the areas selling fresh produce and spices. Pick up a souvenir of your trip to Egypt, choosing from the large selection of traditional textiles, trinkets, and ornaments. Sample local and international cuisine at the onsite eateries, including popular Egyptian barbecue joints serving kebabs and kofta.

  • Old market is equivalent to the old market. The mosque is amazing, very detailed built. Lots of shops and pubs that look a little kiczowato.

  • Love spending evenings here. The mosque is stunning now its finished and have watched it being built over the years. You can find just about anything here.
  • Busy place with lots of shops and small coffees. There are .anu tourists walking around along with dwellers. It seems quite safe as there are police watching around. Plus you an the a cap to your place but you need to bargain.
