There are some wonders of the world that simply need to be immortalized. Grab your camera, a good book and a cheap flight to Cairo for a glimpse at the last surviving wonder of the world, the Pyramid of Giza. This pyramid is thought to have been built around 2600 BC and a closer look at this awesome structure shows it was never finished. Most pyramids have a pointed top, but the Pyramid of Giza is flat and to this day, its incompletion remains a mystery. More mystery surrounds this Great Pyramid – a flight to Cairo and an excursion to the Pyramid might provoke you to seek the meaning behind the Pyramid of Giza…if you can…

Beyond the pyramids, however, lies the metropolitan city of Cairo, home to more than one-quarter of all Egyptians. Cairo’s location along the Nile River has made it the heart of Egypt and a must-see tourist destination for centuries.

Its two seasons don’t quite range from hot to cold, but rather hot to “less hot.” Desert storms in April add some water to the mix, but Cairo as a whole receives less than an inch of rainfall a year.

A little research during your flight to Cairo will make your vacation run smoother. Study the public transportation routes to manoeuvre the streets of Cairo cheaply and easily on the metro. Trains run regularly but can be extremely crowded. Consider hopping in a cab or a privately owned microbus after your Cairo flight arrives. Plan before you go and save yourself some time and money because cab fares are often negotiable and travelling during rush hour will cost you more and move very slowly. 

What is good to know if travelling to Cairo?

Sufi Dancing: Experience this aspect of live entertainment where art and spirituality connect you to your Cairo travel. Let whirling dervishes swirl around you in elaborate costumes so engulf you in a zikr – a religious act of remembering God. These professional dancers keep meaning intertwined in their moves: Their act of “whirling” symbolizes the turning away from the world and turning toward God. You can find them at folklore shows, and the best in town are known to be at Ghuriya in the Islamic center.

Al Azhar Mosque: You don’t have to be a student at Al Azhar University to visit the school’s ancient mosque. The Al Azhar Mosque, built in 972 AD, stands in the center of campus, and has become a popular site for youth political demonstrations. If a friendly student offers to guide you through the mosque, a small tip is a courteous gesture to let them know you appreciate their kindness. Entry requires you to wear a scarf or burqua (available at the door), and you should wear respectful clothing that covers your skin.

Coffee Shops: Who needs a pub crawl when you can you do a coffee crawl? Coffee shops in Cairo are as socially hopping as bars are in the United States, and are known as a place to gather with old friends and meet new ones. It’s a great place to relax on day one of your journey, especially if your Cairo flight was more than just a few hours. Choose from shisha (hooka), shai (tea), or ahwa (coffee) to fulfill whatever caffeine fix you require.

Shopping: If you’re looking for a unique place to shop, head to Khan Al Khalili , an outdoor market district in the Old City section of Cairo. Though you won’t find many designer digs here, you’re sure to leave Khan Al Khalili with your bags brimming with souvenirs for your return Cairo flight.
