More Information on Cairo

Once you have visited Cairo, you might think the name means “chaos” – but with a little pre-planning a trip to this crowded city can be fun and exciting as well as overwhelming and exhausting. The city itself is the ideal base for seeing the Great Pyramids, of course, but do not think that is the only reason to come to Cairo. The Egyptian Museum is world class and will give you a sense of history for the crazy city around you. And wandering the older parts of Cairo can be a real treat – just be sure you do not get talked into anything you do not already want to buy.
