A QUICK GUIDE TO CAIRO, EGYPT


Cairo, Egypt is so rich in history and culture (both ancient and modern). There is so many things to do and see in Egypt and I can honestly say I had the most amazing experience. Standing in front of those gigantic Pyramids of Giza was honestly breath taking. Climbing inside of the pyramids was very hot and had a lot of stairs (helloooo unexpected cardio exercise). It was also very claustrophobic at times inside the pyramids, but definitely a great experience! In Cairo, Egypt there are extremely nice people but also some not, so watch out for the scammers and people in the markets that try to stop you! Don't talk with strangers or trust them, especially those who seem to be super friendly. 


WHERE  TO  S T A Y 

Hilton Cairo Zamalek Residences: is set among the waters of the River Nile. The Hilton hotel is located between downtown Cairo and Giza and is only 19km away from the Cairo Airport. 

Le Meridien Pyramids Hotel & Spa: has beautiful views of the Giza Pyramids, which is only located 1 km away from this hotel. From the outdoor pool you can see the top half of the gigantic Pyramids and is only 13 km from Cairo's downtown Tahrir Square.
