Foreign Travel Advice
Book your flight and enjoy a "whole new world" of experiences in Cairo, the capital of Egypt and one of the world's largest cities. Cairo is famous for the Giza Pyramids and the river Nile, one of the world's most magnificent architectural feats, where you can also find the Solar Barque Museum, showcasing the Pharaoh's solar boat. Driving around Cairo is not recommended, but the metro, the first in Africa, modern buses and taxis offer great alternatives. In town, enjoy a 360-degree view from the top of Cairo Tower and visit the Al-Azhar Mosque, home to one of the oldest universities in the world. A trip to Pharaonic Village, a 20-minute drive from the city center, will allow you to experience the life of a Pharaoh in eight museums, as well as a boat trip down the Nile! The medieval Islamic Cairo, with rich Islamic architecture and Turkish baths, is a beautiful complement to ancient Egyptian history. Don't forget to take in the sights and sounds of the city souk, an open-air marketplace of Khan El Khalily. Nearby you can catch a Sufi dancing performance, or perhaps relax in one of many coffee and shisha houses. Explore the modern side of Cairo in the Egyptian Center for Culture and Art (MAKAN), the Townhouse Gallery of Contemporary Art and the Cairo Jazz Club. Cairo is truly something different and extraordinary. Filled with ancient history as well as modern culture, it's a place for everyone to enjoy.
