I’m about visiting Egypt, esp. Cairo.
Let me start with a small “did you know” fact, which is:
Cairo is not at all worth seeing. :| It has some gems hidden well inside it, but for the most part is this dirty chaotic city with rude people only trying to trick you into walking in some papyrus shop…
Like I said, there are some gems there… the Al-Azhar park is one of them. As, pretty much, the only green spot in smoggy Cairo, any time spent in it is a pleasurable experience.
And by the way… AK47s are plenty around the city… it’s impossible to miss them if you go through museums, banks, etc, etc…over 3 years ago
Chaotic and dirty on the outside, beautiful and heart-warming on the inside, Cairo is a city where first impressions shouldn’t count for everything. Whether enjoying late nights on the bridge of the Nile, or a hookah at the 24 hour tourist hot spot in El Fishawi at the Khan el Khalili market, Cairo is the Egyptian city that never sleeps.over 3 years ago
The Great Pyramid of Giza, the only wonder of the ancient world still in existence isn’t worth visiting? How crazy!
