    Cairo Favorites

    We've been to Cairo twice. The Pyramids and Sphynx are awesome sites. Remember it is a tourist spot so peddlers will come from everywhere. Enjoy the sites first, then bargain for souvenirs. Stay in site of the bus parking. Visit the Cairo Museum. It is amazing. The history of the site.

  • People of Cairo

    Cairo Favorites

    This is a beautiful city with lot of similarity with our Indian city. We got down from Luxor at 5.30 in the morning, the city was on the move, people were buying tea, breakfast, going to work or school. I really love the way, people live there! It also shows that people are not lazy like many Asian countries, where people sleep through sunrise or...

    Cairo Favorites

    I took both with me to Egypt. (I have been twice before) and have to say that the ROUGH GUIDE is a much better guide on all front. I found the current edition of Lonely Planet lacking in current info and also very thin reading. I have often thought that Lonely Planet is a bit overrated. ROugh Guide also has better writeups and historical...

  • Old Cairo

    Cairo Favorites

    There are a couple of buildings in Old Cairo which really look very old. I cannot help but think if these were built more than 100 years ago. Two of my photos have signs of a bazaar, a museum, papyrus, and perfume. I took the pictures when I was in the city of Giza touring the pyramids and sphinx. These buildings catches my attention and took a...

  • Traffic

    Cairo Favorites

    Even in the 1980's traffic in Cairo was a very interesting experience. Cairo had lots of highways some with as many as 6 lanes but it also had lots of cars to fill them. Most of the cars should have been off the road and were really old. The standard way to exit at a junction was to stay in the outside lane as long as possible, beep and then pull...

  • Advice: Currency

    If you have no plastic card (either a debit, or a credit one) and do not wish to be bothered with travelers cheques (where commission charges tend to be quite high) you will be better off taking with you determinate currency. At present, these currencies are clearly Euros (#1, offering the best exchange rate) and US Dollars (as widely accepted but...
