Cairo is the cosmopolitan, vibrant bustling capital of Egypt and cultural, business and political centre of the Middle East. Cairo is an amazing city full of life and movement and it is that way almost 24 hours a day with the constant noisy honking of horns and hum of traffic. Sometimes called the Triumphant City, Cairo is one of the world's largest urban areas and offers everything any visitor who wants an unforgettable, astonishing and simply enjoyable holiday in Egypt could desire.
The Great Pyramids of Giza are on edge of the city, but there are also ancient temples, tombs and monuments including the Egyptian Antiquities Museum within or nearby the city itself. Cairo offers an incredible selection of shopping, leisure and nightlife, ranging from the famous Khan el-Khalili souk (largely unchanged since the 14th century) to modern air-conditioned malls displaying the latest fashions, spices, perfumes, gold, silver, carpets, brass and leatherwork, glass and ceramics.
There’s another side to Cairo apart from the world-class attractions of the pyramids, museums and Islamic treasures. There are boulevards of flame trees and splashes of sunlight glinting off brass lamps as well as the Nile as it continues to flows sedately through the fashionable suburbs and luxury hotels as well as the crowded souks and masses of humanity. Cairo is not just a highlight of a holiday in Egypt, it’s a genuinely world class, once in a lifetime experience not to be missed.
