Cairo is the capital city of Egypt and is home to some of the world’s greatest structures. All the documentaries in the world on Ancient Egypt can’t prepare you for the awesomeness of seeing some of the oldest and highly symbolic landmarks of this incredible country. The precise geometrical shape and millennia-old structure of the Pyramids of Giza is simply extraordinary, and truly deserving of its status as the sole survivor of the Seven Wonders of the World. Nearby is the majestic Sphinx, a stone creature with the head of a human and the body of a lion. For an authentic experience, hire a camel or a horse to take you across the desert to these marvellous and historical sites.
For further historical attractions, visit the Egyptian Museum located in the centre of Cairo. Stay in the city of Cairo as it is the centre of Egypt and offers many convenient travel facilities and many different types of accommodation. For a great view, opt for a hotel, such as the Beirut Hotel, that overlooks the Nile. Cheap hotels in Cairo can be booked online with Direct Flights.

A central location for a hotel also allows you to fully experience the hustle and bustle of the streets of Cairo. Bazaars, such as the Khan Al-Khalili bazaar, offer many exotic souvenir goods to tempt travellers. These vary from sheeshas, a type of tobacco smoked through a water pipe, to handcrafted musical instruments to Bedouin jewellery and textiles. Travellers should also take care to wear modest clothing as the people of Cairo, as in most of
Egypt, are strict followers of Islam.
