    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Cairo or (Al-Qahira as pronounced by Egyptians), one of the oldest cities in the world, the Capital and the biggest city in Egypt, only the river Nile is separating Cairo from Giza as locals consider them as one big city. It is a city that would satisfy a wide range of tastes.

    Plenty of parts of Cairo feel like a beautiful time warp. Down by the Nile, you can watch tiny wooden boats float by and imagine nothing’s changed in centuries. The markets are still home to products like spices, perfumes and precious metals hiding under rag-tag cloth roofs in front of yellow stone buildings, while the Christian churches, Muslim monuments and stunning Egyptian Antiquities Museum all draw you in to the ancient Kingdom.

    The Great Pyramids towers over the desert, lit up in a golden glow at night and striking in its intensity. For all you’ve read about this particular site, you can hardly fail to be impressed.

    Back in the city, grab a taste of a buzzing city, smoking sheesha on a rooftop bar whilst inhaling the cities distinctive scent, or delve into a lifestyle fit for a Pharoah in one of the cities notoriously plush hotels. Not to mention the astonishing selection of museums, which are every bit as sensational as you’d expect in a place that truly reeks of history.

    Travel destinations don’t get much more classic than Cairo. This is one of the world’s biggest cities, a sprawling metropolis hiding more scenic hidden treasures than most cities can even dream of.

    • Giza
      Giza or (e'Giza as pronounced by Egyptians) the hometown of the famous pyramids is the most famous location of the Giza Plateau; the site of the most impressive ancient monuments in the world, including the Great Sphinx, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and a number of large temples and pyramids. Renting a camel, horse, or quad bikes are relatively easy in the area.

      Being a tourist, this is one of the places where a tourist may grasp a bit of the Egyptian lifestyle, unlike Hurghada and Sharm and many tourist-based beach resorts where you might not get an authentic experience of the Egyptian culture and lifestyle.

      The "Haram street" is a street that is full of hotels, convenient if you choose to stay in Giza, as you will be very close to the pyramids and if you are lucky enough, you might be able to see the pyramids from your own window.

      Disadvantages are the heavy traffic, the sounds of car horns almost never stop, and the city is generally a bit dusty.

      Perhaps one or two hours away from Cairo, Dashur can be reached by hiring a taxi. One can purchase a ticket to enter Dashur for one's self at a ticket booth with marked prices, (student tickets are an available option). Also one will probably have to pay a small fee for the taxi.

      Dahshur is home to the Red Pyramid and the Bent Pyramid. The pyramids are subject to closing depending upon the archaeological work being done at that given time. Dahshur also presents wondrous views of several smaller pyramids that cannot be entered.
