One holiday to Cairo is not enough
No holiday to Egypt would be complete without a visit to the Pyramids. Every visitor to Cairo must visit the Gizah Pyramids, words can’t do justice to the enormity and complexity of these structures which will definitely leave you speechless when you see them. Although not for everyone, some may like to visit Khan el Khalili; a bustling commercial quarter where you will be able to pick up real souvenirs and really feel part of this lively city as well as getting a real glimpse into true Egyptian culture.
The River Nile runs through Cairo and there is a huge number of activities for you to enjoy on the River – from a Nile Cruise to a spot of lunch or a pre dinner drink.
If you manage to get through all the historical sights whilst on holiday in Cairo there are plenty of other activities that you can do. If Cairo didn’t already have enough attractions in the city alone, there’s also a zoo and botanical gardens that you can wander around in and work up an appetite for some Egyptian cuisine.
There are a lot of restaurants and cafes for you to sample the local delicacies. Whilst on holiday in Cairo you must try Ful Medames Egypts , a vegetarian dish of mashed broad beans served with eggs. If you really want to have a true Egypt holiday experience the resorts of Sharm El Sheik and Hurghada are within easy reach by plane.
