Best Things To Do in Cairo

Some visitors are satisfied with a tour of the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx, but there is so much more to this city. If it's ancient ruins that draw you to Egypt's capital, carve out some time for the archeological sites of Dahshur, Memphis and Saqqara. For a dose of Egypt's religious past, explore Salah El-Din Citadel and the historic Islamic Cairoand Coptic Cairo neighborhoods. Further insight into Egypt's past can be gained at the Egyptian Museum. When you're in need of a break from Cairo's historic locales, relax inAl Azhar Park or barter for goods at a Khan el-Khalili bazaar. And as dusk sets in over Cairo's sandy terrain, witness the monuments glow in the orange light of the setting sun as you enjoy a felucca ride on the Nile.
