Visiting Cairo– A City Guide
Stretching along the banks of the winding Nile, Cairo is an energetic city that seamlessly blends the old and new. Gleaming skyscrapers and shopping malls tower over serene mosques and bustling bazaars, while distant views of the Giza pyramids are a constant reminder of Cairo’s ancient heritage.

Cairo: city layout and top attractions
Sitting on the eastern banks of the Nile, Cairo is Africa’s largest city. In its centre, the Midan El Tahrir district, known as the Paris of the Nile, has 19th-century architecture, modern hotels and the high-energy Tahrir Square. Nearby Islamic Cairo boasts medieval buildings and historic mosques.

The Egyptian Museum in Downtown Cairo is a must-see with 100,000 ancient artefacts, including Tutankhamun’s mask, telling stories of bygone times. Across the river, only 18 kilometres away, the ancient Giza pyramids honour the kings Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure. For panoramic views of Cairo and the pyramids, Cairo Tower’s observation deck is worth a visit.

The concierge recommends…

  • Haggling for gold trinkets and spices at the 14th-century Khan Al-Khalili souk, with its winding courtyards and alleys.
  • Sailing along the Nile on a traditional felucca boat and soaking up views of skyscrapers, green vegetation and historic monuments.
  • Visiting Islamic Cairo’s ancient El Moez Street, or Old Cairo’s historic buildings including the Babylon Fortress, Coptic churches and the Nilometer, once used to measure levels of the Nile.

Eating Out in Cairo
Some of the best culinary delights are served in hotel restaurants in Cairo, but there are numerous fine dining venues and street food vendors, serving Middle Eastern and international dishes. Stuffed pigeon is a popular Egyptian dish, and local sweet treat Om Ali is not to be missed.

In Old Cairo, you can sit in charming cafés sipping mint tea, and the district of Zamalek has many upscale restaurants and international cuisine. You can soak up colourful sights, flavours and aromas at food markets like Bab al-Luq and Tawfiqiyya Souq, or sample fresh falafel and fried liver from street vendors on any corner.

The chef recommends...

  • Mahshy: Vine and cabbage leaves stuffed with rice, vegetables, meat and spices.
  • Hamam Mahshi: Pigeon stuffed with rice, wheat and herbs, and then grilled or roasted.
  • Koshary: A famous national dish often sold by street vendors. A blend of spaghetti, rice, black lentils, chickpeas and garlic, then topped with a spicy tomato sauce.
  • Aseer Asab: A sweet drink, also known as sugar cane juice, served over ice. Found in most cafés or juice stalls.

Shopping in Cairo
Cairo was a main link on the east-west spice route in the 15th Century, and the Nile played an important role in transporting produce. Numerous souks (markets) were established selling local spices and gold, and many still operate today. You can haggle over jewellery and handicrafts at colourful bazaars, or shop for familiar brands at air-conditioned upscale malls and designer boutiques.

No visit to Cairo is complete without browsing hundreds of stalls at the medieval Khan al-Khalili in Islamic Cairo. Charming vendors call you to stalls piled high with clothing, shoes and gold treasures, as you navigate your way through crowded alleys and courtyards. In Downtown Cairo, Shar'a Hoda Sharaawi is lined with antique shops, while Citystars and Cairo Festival City Mall have hundreds of high street stores, restaurants and cinemas.

Speciality shops in Cairo

  • Tanis Fabrics: You can choose the colour, print, and fabric for a customised piece.
  • Abdel-Zaher Bookshop: Founded in 1936, this Egyptian book-binding shop is the last of its kind in Cairo, specialising in creating leather and oil paper books with gold monograms.
  • Street of Coppersmiths: Shops along this street in Islamic Cairo sell brass and copper items that can be engraved such as bowls and trays.

Culture & Nightlife in Cairo
Cairo’s cultural history blends Arabian, African and European influences. The city’s many museums, art galleries, cinemas and theatres showcase Middle Eastern and western art and history through exhibitions, performances and films.

Alcohol isn’t a big part of nightlife in Cairo, but this doesn’t stop people from having a good time. There’s a mix of western bars and Arabian late cafes in Downtown Cairo, but most nightclubs are attached to luxury hotels in Cairo. For live music, there’s Cairo Jazz Club or El Genina Theatre in Al-Azhar Park, and for contemporary dance performances or classical music, Cairo Opera runs an all-year-round program. The city hosts annual festivals including Cairo Jazz Festival in October, the International Book Fair in January, and the International Film Festival in November.

Best historical sites in Cairo

  • Pyramids of Giza: One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the three pyramids date back to 2,584 BC and are guarded by the Great Sphinx.
  • The Citadel of Cairo: Sitting on Mokattam Hill, this medieval 12th-century fortification was the home of Egyptian rulers for 700 years.
  • Tahrir Square: The public square in Downtown Cairo was the hub of the 2011 revolution against Hosni Mubarak, and is seen as a symbol of liberation, often hosting festivals, protests and events.

Leisure in Cairo
Many visit Cairo for its ancient sites and museums, but there are numerous modern attractions, ranging from art galleries to championship golf courses and theme parks. At family-friendly attractions like the Pharaonic Village, you can learn about Egypt’s history through replica villages and live shows. In Fayoum, there’s Tunis Village with Lake Qaroun, Wadi El Rayan waterfalls, and mud-brick houses.

Dream Park in Giza is a great day out with roller coasters, go-karts, fairground rides, water slides and restaurants. For the more adventurous, there are quad-biking desert safari tours on the plateau above Cairo, where you can zoom around sandy terrain near the pyramids.

Sports activities in Cairo

  • Katameya Heights Golf Course: Located in New Cairo Fifth District, this is one of Cairo’s first golf courses. Set within a lush oasis, it has an 18-hole and nine-hole course and a clubhouse.
  • Horseback riding: You can ride around the Giza Pyramids and watch the structure glow at sunrise or sunset.

Holiday Inn City Stars
By Jasper of Texas
Clean comfortable room. The furniture is dated but still very functional. There was almost too much furniture in the room as it interfered with general movement. The work space was well arranged but [More] few outlets that were not already in use. Switches were difficult to use, had to walk across the room to turn things on. Bathroom was well lite and plenty of hot water with good pressure. If you are on the side by the intersection it is extremely noisy especially in the evening, as most intersections in Cairo are. It quiets down about 10 pm. Buffet Breakfast was a good value and the food was good with Asian Indian Arabic and Western offerings. Taxis can be an issue as that is the norm in Egypt. Just make sure you are clear on the destination, price and receipt BEFORE you get in the car. [Less]
