Holidays in Cairo, Egypt

Posted January 9, 2011 by BookingBuddy

For more than 10 centuries, Cairo has been a welcome sight for weary travellers, and this still holds true today. The city has become a bustling metropolis, with a wide range of fine dining, luxury hotels, and cultural activities. Cairo is also a favorite stop on a visit to the nearby pyramids.  Flights to Cairo can be affordable with a variety of air carriers offering daily flights from the UK.

 

Eat

The Bird Cage: Though Thai food may seem like a strange recommendation of where to eat in Cairo, Egpyt, it all makes sense after one eats at the Bird Cage. As the name suggests, caged birds sing as you eat an array of Asian-inspired dishes brought to you by kimono-clad waiters. The atmosphere may be a bit theatrical, but the food is the main event. 

 

Stay

Mena House Oberai: Located within 40 acres of gardens and nestled in the shadows of the Pyramid of Giza, Mena House Oberai offers a stay unlike any other in the world. The palatial hotel provides amenities fit for a king (or queen) in  luxurious surroundings. Rooms come equipped with personal bar, 24-hour in-room dining, broadband Internet access, and satellite TV.  Be sure to compare Cairo holiday packages that include flight plus hotel to ensure you get the best deal for your holiday in Cairo.

 

Shop

Khan el-Khalili: This bazaar has been the place to shop in Cairo since the 14th century, and is considered one of the most historic marketplaces in Egypt. Today, you can find everything from traditional crafts to spices and antique trinkets to fine jewelry in the Khan.
