Cairo: Places to Check Out

Being the gateway to the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian capital of Cairo is one of the highest visited cities in the world. Inside Africa, Cairo International Airport used to be the busiest airport until Johannesburg’s O. R. Tambo International Airport came to replace it by serving a world class financial hub. Flights to Cairo still fly from all parts of the globe in large numbers and as a mater of fact, are increasing in number due to the easy availability of cheap tour packages to the city through travel agents and tour operators. It is true that cheap flights to Cairo are now, easier to find than ever before and tourists can find numerous possibilities to fly down to the city in lower costs. Cairo is quite a diverse place when it comes to checking out its sights and sounds and exploring the city. Hence, travelers need to plan their tip out as per their likings.

Some of the places that are sure to be seen down the flights to Cairo are the pyramids, The Egyptian Museum and the Sphinx. Where the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx are two inseparable parts of the itinerary for Cairo, The Egyptian Museum is also quite a cliché when it comes to the stories of lucky travelers who got their cheap flights to Cairo. There are few places in the city that are simply worth choking out. Even though the aforementioned sights might be the first priority of most travelers, these sights should also be considered for exploration. Old Cairo is one of the suburbs of the city and is home to numerous mosques, churches and other archeological sites and places of worship. There stand the ancient Ben Ezra Synagogue, Babylon Fortress, Amr bin al-‘As Mosque, Greek Church of St. George, hanging Church and many other Coptic churches. Moreover, tourists can get to explore the reason why Cairo is known as ‘the city of a thousand minarets’. There are numerous Ottoman mosques with each of them having its own monumental size and grand architecture. Some of the worth visiting ones include, Aqmar Mosque, Qahira Fatmid Mosque, Lulua Mosque, Al-Hakim Mosque and Juyushi Mosque. Another point of interest is Cairo Tower which stands on an island in Nile and is as tall as the pyramids of Giza. It is a TV tower and a landmark in the city. Especially when lit up at night, it becomes a fabulous landmark to photograph.

Other places like the Khan El-Khalili bazaar and Tahrir Square are also worth checking out.
