Pulsing with life and movement twenty four hours every day with ancient temples, Christian churches, tombs, monuments at your fingertips, this wonderful city is cloaked in excitement and mystery for all to discover. The diverse culture in Cairo includes art galleries and music halls with the Cairo Opera House being the most impressive.
Many people visiting this ancient city may be caught unawares by the many shopping opportunities that await them. The narrow winding streets of the Khan el Khalili Souk (market) is the place to barter for bargains which include jewellery, brass and copperware, spices, perfumes, carpets, leatherwork, glass and tailor-made clothing. Wekala-al-Balaq is a famous street market for Egyptian cotton and fabrics and a visit to the Camel Market will leave a lasting memory of sights, sounds and smells.
One of the many highlights of a visit to Cairo is a visit to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities to view the treasures of Tutankhamun. With the Great Pyramids of Giza on the edge of the city, a trip to Egypt will never be complete without a short stay in this sprawling metropolis along the banks of the River Nile.
