Old Market, Sharm El Sheikh

3.3
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.
