Top Things in Cairo
While a view of the Nile is lovely from a hotel room, enjoying it while taking a walk along the promenade will improve it further.
Take in the breathtaking sights of the Pyramids and the Sphinx. A guided tour will give visitors the opportunity to learn more about the history and facts behind these majestic landmarks.
Musical performances at the Cairo Opera House and Garden Theatre are an ideal after-dinner activity.
There are many types of Cairo accommodation available for travellers to enjoy, spanning the spectrum from cheap hotels in Cairo to five-star resort hotels. Smaller boutique hotels offer an attractive option for tourists, creating a more intimate setting. Large chain hotels and resorts offer families a great option, allowing groups to stay in the same room, if desired. There are organised activities available in-house, along with idyllic views of the Nile, Mediterranean or across the city.
One of the pleasures of visiting Egypt is having the opportunity to savour the traditional food on offer, which is available everywhere. Whether from a restaurant or a street stall, Egyptian staples must be tried to complete a holiday. Try falafel; fatir, a type of sweet or savoury pastry; fetyeer, pancakes with a filling and shawarma, bread wrapped meat. There are also restaurants offering a range of Western cuisine for those who prefer it.
