Cairo International Airport - Arrival
and Departure Daily Schedule
Cairo, Egypt, the Triumphant
City, known officially as al-Qāhirah is one of the world's largest
urban areas and offers many sites to see. It is the administrative
capital of Egypt and, close by, is almost every Egypt Pyramid, such
as the Great Pyramids of Giza on the very edge of the city. But
there are also ancient temples, tombs, Christian churches,
magnificent Muslim monuments, and of course, the Egyptian
Antiquities Museum all either within or nearby the city.
Cairo, Egypt is an amazing city full of life and movement, and it is
that way almost 24 hours every day, with the noisy honking of horns,
children playing in the streets and merchants selling their wears
and services. And here, the Egyptians are most at home in this
powerful, modern and ancient city
Cairo, Egypt provides great culture, including art galleries and
music halls, such as the Cairo Opera House, as well it should, being
one of the largest cities in the world. It also provides some of the
grandest accommodations and restaurants in the world, such as the
Four Seasons and the Cairo Marriott.
Cairo offers an incredible selection of shopping, leisure and
nightlife activities. Shopping ranges from the famous Khan el-Khalili
souk, (or bazaar) largely unchanged since the 14th century, to
modern air-conditioned centers displaying the latest fashions. All
the bounty of the East can be here. Particularly good buys are
spices, perfumes, gold, silver, carpets, brass and copperware,
leatherwork, glass, ceramics and mashrabiya. Try some of the famous
street markets, like Wekala al-Balaq, for fabrics, including
Egyptian cotton, the Tentmakers Bazaar for appliqué-work, Mohammed
Ali Street for musical instruments and, although you probably won't
want to buy, the Camel Market makes a fascinating trip. This is, and
has been for over a thousand years, truly a shopper's paradise.
