Falks, my recomendations now are NOT TO GO TO EGYPT IN A CLOSE TIMES! There is dangerous still, the country is in a big change and nothing is sure at all. There are many nice places there, The museum of Cairo (this is the national museim of Egypt) the Tawer of Cairo and - ofcourse - all the famouse piramids, but - be patient for some months, now this country becomes real muslim and the Shariat is going to return with a hight force, so noone knows how it will be for the foreigners.
Cairo is a big city, whatever you need you will find. Be it at 2 AM or 2 PM, doesn't matter. Everything is open almost all day. Best time to visit is October to April.
Hey guys, I want to make a visit to Cairo and I am blank on almost everything. So need you help in planning the overall trip. Help me understand the duration of the trip, the places to visit and things to be aware of. I would like to make a 1 week visit so curious if that would be enough?
I was in Cairo on one day tour from Sharm, we didn't have much time to explore, I remember it as "running" trip. Egyptian Museum is really worth to see, Giza obviously and Old Town. Generally this town depressed me, it shocked me that people throw garbage behind windows so they have dumping ground as view from their apartments although I'm not expert as I saw the city from the coach. For pyramids one day is enough, for the city not, for sure it's interesting and worth to...
Is it best to take the train to Giza to see the pyramids or via taxi? Would a taxi ride to the pyramids be expensive? Thx
