THE PHARAONIC VILLAGE
Jacob's Island, Sakiet Miky, Giza (about 10 minutes from downtown), phone 571-8675.
Assuming you are a tourist in Cairo, why not see a real touristic attraction? In this show, you can see 'how the ancient egyptians lived' (sic) as well as 'Disneyland style' reconstructions of main buildings. A pleasant way to spend the day.
This is a great place for the family. Kids are both educated and entertained as they sail down man-made canals and watch actors on the shore re-create ancient Egyptian life. Pharaonic costumes are available for both adults and kids for photo sessions. Open in summer 9 am-9 pm, in winter 9 am-5 pm. Cost is £E 50 for non-Egyptians, £E 35 for non-Egyptian students.

The Post Office has some interesting decorations. It's a pleasant site on your way to the Citadel, which you MUST see!
Go to Old Cairo to see the Coptic area as well. The churches are quite interesting.
Most of the people in Egypt are poor, so if you see a woman or a child begging for money at the sidewalk, hava a heart give them a dollar or two.

Camel Market 11
The picture shows the entrance where you pay and get a receipt. Close to this plce on your right, there is a tea-caffe. A plce if you think its been enough of seeing.
Camel Market 9
As you watch out the camels, also watch out the sticks. Since its all about the use of stick that make the camels run crazy!
Camel Market 8
We experienced an owner beating up a camel severely, that it started vomiting the grass it had eaten. So, the environment may not be that organized and nice. But thats how the business is there.
Camel Market 6
Even though we paid at the entrance of the market, a camel owner asked for 'bakshish' (tips) from us since we were taking photos. Don pay and its not necessary.
Camel Market 3
Camels are brought in here mostly from Sudan. There are large camel market around Aswan. The most convenient is perhaps this one which lies at the outskirt of Cairo.
It is the law in Egypt if the house is not finished it is tax-free. Almost every house is not finished. They just build it and put the windows.
Individual or group?
You can wander off in the Old Town and visit some not so well-known mosques, but I suppose you're better off to stick to a group.
