on the bank of the nile river in a felucca
has a lot to offer. I started my Cairo trip from Tahrir where I stayed in Canadian hostel
a good place which was clean for 20 LE. Tahrir could be termed as the focal
point of the city since it is kind of the middle of the city one can easily go
to Giza , old city etc , the subway is here as well so transportation is not a
are still amazing pieces of art. Aside from that Cairo offers good cheap food definitely try the falafel
from Felfela and the food at Gad , restaurant, is also good. Those of you who
like subway sandwiches you would forget them once you eat Momen which is a
pastime is shopping and eating and that you can always experience.
Cairo there are loads of places to go. Starting from the
old city , the citadel ( al ala) as it is called is an amazing piece of
architecture. Besides one can also go to Al Azhar University and the recently
opened park I failed to recall its name but this park pictures included is
beautiful as it breaks the monotony of the city and it has some amazing views
of the old city. the Khan e Khalili souk is also a must see especially if
one wants to see bargaining but one can be easily in the labyrinth of alleys.
For belly dancing viewing one can go to sharae harm although some of the areas
there are a bit off limits I mean creepy.
giza, the pyramids what else
Nasr city is
the new city. This is where the big shopping malls are located
like city stars etc although branded stuff in Egypt is very expensive. But there is this amazing
coffee scene here and with guys and girls hanging around like in any country.
wanting to stay put in Cairo
I would recommend do their shopping from Saudi super market for the week where
prices are knocked down and they can save a lot of money and it can easily be
reached by metro from Tahrir.
Qasre nil which
is where the Nile flows is also a place to go to and where in the
evenings most of the people come to take a ride in a boat. Had fun dancing to
the Egyptian tunes. The boat ride is inexpensive to say the least!!
