Foreign Travel Advice
Cairo, Egypt's famous capital city, is enshrined in antiquity. Nobody can think of Cairo without conjuring up the Pyramids, the Sphinx and camels; however, there is more to this sprawling city than ""just"" ancient monuments. The city benefits from trams, buses and a subway system so tourists can easily get from one spot to the next. Of course, the Giza Pyramid is on every tourist's list of top attractions to see in Cairo, but a visit to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities to see Tutankhamen's treasures is also a must. Take a ride on a Felucca boat up the Nile or haggle for bargains at the Khan El Khalili medieval bazaar. Visit one of the city's oldest mosques, the Al-Azhar Mosque, with its beautiful architecture, or stroll through the winding lanes of old Coptic Cairo for an atmospheric look into the past. Climb to the top of the 11th century Bab Zuweila gate and admire the spectacular panoramic view of the city or take a walk in the Al-Azhar Park where you can escape the crowds of the city and enjoy the landscaped gardens. In the evening, party the night away at the modern Club 35 or enjoy an al-fresco beverage at the popular Odeon Palace Bar.
