Travelling to Cairo, Egypt
Set on the banks of the Nile River, the Egyptian capital, Cairo, is a unique mix of ancient and modern, a sprawling city with some of the world’s oldest Islamic and Coptic Christian architecture.
Visit Tahrir Square, an expansive plaza in the heart of Cairo and an important landmark in its political history. This is where you’ll find the Egyptian Museum, filled to the brim with antiquities and artifacts, including royal mummies. Cairo Tower is another must-visit - from the top of this 187 metre structure, you can see as far as the famous Giza Pyramids.
Make sure you visit the vibrant Khan al-Khalili market, which was built in the 14th century, a series of shops and small courtyards selling everything from knick knacks to groceries. The place is a jumble of miscellaneous vendors, but there are distinct areas for gold, copper and spices, and it’s great place to pick up perfumes, handmade rugs and textiles.
You couldn’t come to Cairo without seeing the iconic Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx, which date back to the 26th century BC. The Great Pyramid, or Pyramid of Khufu, is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and Giza’s Sphinx is the largest and most famous Sphinx still in existence.
