Tourist Places In Cairo

If you are planning to visit Cairo in your next vacations then this article will help you to get some idea about best places to visit in Cairo.  So that you have take an informed decision while planning your trips and tours.

Here are some of the best Cairo attractions and places to visit

Cairo sightseeing tours usually include the Pyramids of Giza. These three pyramids are the best attraction that this city has. The tallest one is called the Pyramid of Giza, and the other two are called the pyramid of Khufu and the pyramid of Cheops. These three pyramids are one of the first must visit spots when you are making the list of thing where to go in Cairo because they are the most preferred destination for almost every tourist.

The second best thing that is on the list of Cairo tourist attractions is The Egyptian Museum. With some exciting collection of antiquities it is one of the best museums in the world. You will need at least five to six day if you want to understand every artifact that is displayed in this museum. But you should not miss out on Tutankhamun Galleries, the treasures displayed there were found in the tomb of Tutankhamun and are distributed in different rooms.

Then there is Khan el-Khalili which is one of the best places for shopping in this world and all of the Egypt. It is so because it has long streets filled with tourists out for shopping and being a historic place which later turned into the shopping areas gives it a magnetic effect due to which people cannot resist visiting this place at least once while they are checking the list of things to visit Cairo.

If you want to explore the architectural mosques, then Sultan Hassan Mosque is the best one to begin with. It is because this mosque is one of the best work of Mamluk architecture in the world and people from different countries visit this city just to see what it look like when they experience it in person. As it was built in 1356 – 1363 for the Sultan Hassan el-Nashar, it has great historic value as well for the country and is a must while you are in sightseeing tours in Cairo Egypt.

Now if you want to sit and relax after wandering around in the city, you should visit Al-Azhar Park. This part is built over a rubbish dump and is the green lungs of the old district. It provides sense of peace and chaos free movement in the chaotic streets of Cairo. It is slightly above from the ground level which means that you can experience some great views of the city, and do not miss the sunset from this park because this park is probably the best place to see the sun set and relax in all of the Egypt. There are some restaurants near this park so that you can grab something to eat while you enjoy the greenery of this park.

      Very well arranged tour with a perfect itinerary. The guides were amazing & very knowledgeable. Although we missed the hot air balloon on day 2 bcoz of train delay, it was scheduled on a different day & that day happened to be Jan 1. It was indeed surreal to start 2019 by watching the first sunrise of the year from high up in the sky! Hot Air Balloon ride at Luxor & the Nile Cruise

      Devaansh was super attentive and helpful. Trip was great, but I had a separate agency coordinator for pickup and dropoff, a historian tour guide, and a new driver each day in Egypt. Tipping was out of hand. Wish that were more consolidated as in other countries. Otherwise great time!

    • Trip to Greece

      We just returned from our trip and had an amazing time, would like to thank you Shubham for the same. The hotels you booked were superb. They all were in the best possible location both in terms of ease of transport and the view. Also, your activeness to get us the boarding pass on return flight is much appreciated. Would also like to say that we took a semi private sail boat ride in Santorini and would highly recommend it to your customers.the company name is angel sailing and it was the best time we had. Just a small suggestion though, if possible avoid booking flights on Egypt Air . We had a not so pleasant experience in all our 4 connecting flights through them . But again ,thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
