Exploring the historical treasures of Cairo

With its abundant historical attractions, Cairo boasts an enduring appeal that is a magnet for multitudes of visitors. Amidst the city's chaotic rhythm lie both visible and hidden treasures. Wandering into quieter districts reveals its more intimate side. Each district exhibits a distinct identity, characterised by magnificent architecture and way of life. The sprawling metropolis also offers a diverse selection of leisure, nightlife and shopping options. Street markets dotted around the city are sources of Egyptian cotton, carpets and traditional spices. Cairo is home to some of the oldest wonders of the ancient world, including the pyramids of Giza. The ancient spectacle is a must-see in a country blessed with countless world-famous tourist icons, such as Coptic Cairo, the Citadel, the Egyptian Museum and the River Nile. 


When to Go

Cairo's shoulder seasons are the best times to visit owing to fewer people and lower accommodation rates. You can take advantage of these factors by visiting between March and April or October and November. Many visitors prefer the winter season because it is pleasantly warm and sunny coupled with breezy and cool nights. The Egyptian capital hosts numerous festivals throughout the year, including the Egypt International Boat Show (February), Sphinx Festival (December) and Cairo International Film Festival (November).


Before you go

Although levels of crime are generally low in Cairo, you must be wary of bag snatchers, pickpockets and muggings in taxis. It is vital to keep your passport and personal possessions safe at all times. Obtaining an Egyptian visa is easy for most nationalities; you can purchase one at the arrivals terminal. Check with your local embassy or travel agent when in doubt. Check the foreign office website for security and travel updates. 


Important local information 

Depending on your needs or preferences, you can either use shuttle buses, taxis, city buses or rent a car to reach the city centre from Cairo International Airport. Taxi drivers often tout for passengers in the arrivals hall. If you opt for the old black-and-white taxis, you will pay a negotiated fare because they normally do not have a meter. The newer white taxicabs are fitted with meters and a price list is published on the official airport website. City buses are accessible from the parking bay located in front of Terminal 1. Cairo is overflowing with various types of budget accommodation options; however, there are few decent midrange establishments. The majority of upper-end hotels are located on the banks of the River Nile. The luxury hotel rates usually exclude taxes, breakfast and vary according to season.
