Cairo Flights Guide
This most ancient of cities—founded in AD 969—is also one of the world’s most archaeologically rich and the region’s hub of cultural and political life. Cairo has an estimated population of 6.7 million residents, and is home to some of the nation’s best (and oldest) film and music industries in the Arab world, as well as being home to iconic landmarks as the Great Sphinx, Cairo Tower and the Citadel.
When visiting Cairo, make sure to plan a tour of a few of its many museums, mosques and marketplaces, including such icons as the Egyptian Museum (which houses the most comprehensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities and artifacts), the Khan El-Khalili marketplace, an ancient bazaar that is said to date back to 1382, plus be sure to save time to visit Tahrir Square, a large district in the heart of Cairo with some famous buildings that surround; some of these are the American University in Cairo’s downtown campus, headquarters of the Arab League, the Mogamma government admin building, and the exclusive Nile Ritz Carlton Hotel.
Cairo has some of the best shopping and cuisine in the region, with a few of the best restaurants in the city being Don Quichotte, a cozy “hole-in-the-wall” place that offers French, European and other International cuisine; then there is the Revolving Restaurant, which is considered Egypt’s most upscale, loftiest dining venue, is located forty-two stories atop the posh Grand Hyatt and offers delectable French cuisine. To burn off some of those calories from lunch, go shopping at the Bulaq Market (located at the northern tip of the Sharia), or the Sharia al-Muski and Souq al-Gomma markets; these are some of Cairo’s largest and offer vendors hawking everything from fine rugs and art to everyday essentials.
Getting around Cairo is fairly easy, given the many types of transportation available in the city; you can travel by Cairo’s extensive road network, subway system, a rail system, and by sea. Cairo has the Cairo International Airport for travelers around the world.
