Sights in/around Cairo


Hi there!

I’m going to be going on the Nile Discovery tour starting on Nov 7 but I’m arriving a couple days early since I’m going to a friends wedding. I was hoping someone who had already traveled to or lived in Cairo could suggest some of the sights that might not be covered by the tour.

So far I know I want to go check out the Saladin Citadel.
Any other suggestions??

Thanks in advance!


Hi dan - the Khan el Kali markets are good - you will probably see them on your tour but dont get heaps of time there - they are huge!! Eat some koshary - yummy egyptian dish that is sold like a fast food place - so delicious!
