Cairo Travel

 

As you land into Cairo, Egypt, you will be left speechless as you look out the window and see the contrast of the setting. Out one side of the plane, you can see the vast arid desert which seems to stretch endlessly. On the other side of the plane you see a buzzing city which looks like a modern-day Oasis. It is a place like no other and first timers usually feel overwhelmed by such splendour.

Visitors from all over the world have been fascinated with Egypt's wondrous antiquities for thousands of years. Although these antiquities still exist today, a visit to Cairo, Egypt is more than an immersion into the past but also encompasses many modern day amenities which anyone will most surely enjoy.
 

Strolling along the downtown district and in the more ancient residential areas inside the wall of the city where artisans work on the sidewalks outside their homes is also a great pleasure.

 

It is easy to meet real residents that are eager to discuss anything with you. Some of them try to get you into their carpet shop. Others are really just interested to talk and are curious about you as a visitor.

 
If you get hungry, make sure to try the most famous Egyptian dish, Koshray. Koshray is a delectable, traditional Egyptian meal that consists of a delectable combination of macaroni, spaghetti, rice, black lentils, chick peas, garlic sauce and a spicy tomato chili sauce, all topped with fried onions.

 

 

Visiting the pyramids and the Sphinx is absolutely necessary since these Egyptian icons are living and still existing marks of the fascinating history that has made Egypt famous and is very proud of. You will notice as you go along the aggressive Egyptian friendliness over in the country from camel drivers or policemen who try to earn a few Egyptian pounds from you which they call bahshis(tip).

 

 

 

Just ask a friendly co-tourist to help you in taking a picture for you and you will not leave the pyramids with an irritated feeling that you had been duped into giving more than you should. While in the city, make it a point to visit the Egyptian Museum first before going to view pyramids.

You will have a deeper appreciation of ancient Egyptian culture more to if you see the museum first. You are advised not to make pyramid visits on Fridays because of the mass held at noon time up to 1 in the afternoon. The pyramids are closed during this time period.
Cairo, historical and unique city, combines the ancient with the more current. . You will enjoy a lot walking around this city. One of the most surprising things is the price which is not fixed from taxi to a bottle of water. So you will have to ask the price first and start negotiating for a discount. For those who have traveled to many countries, people in Cairo are the hardest people to negotiate with. But still, Cairo is worthy of a visit because of its historical heritage.
