Where to go in Cairo

Cairo, everyone’s got some sort of a love-hate relationship with Cairo, you can hate how crowded it is yet you can’t help but fall for its authenticity and uniqueness, a city as old as they come where you will find what you’re looking for whether you’re in Cairo for nightlife, shopping or even just going around trying all those famous food joints or fancy restaurants let me give you an example of what you might be missing in Cairo.

1. The Pyramids of Giza

I believe that this one a is given, you can’t mention Cairo or even think about it without thinking about the Pyramids of Giza, these funerary temples have been putting travelers in a trance for centuries now and will continue to do so, whether you like historical sites or not you need to see the Pyramids of Giza at least once in your life and just soak in that scenery and that atmosphere that is rich inhistory and architectural wonders.

2. Khan Al Khalili

Ever wondered what a medieval mall would look like? Then this place is where you want to be even if you don’t want to buy anything not saying that this is possible as the merchants there are some of the greatest smooth-talkers you will ever see yet if you’re able to resist all of that charm and great items those merchants are throwing at you not in a literal manner, of course, a place built in the 14th century and still living up to the vibe and feel of that time.

3. Zamalek

Zamalek is the home for arty boutiques and hipster restaurants should be your destination for a nice day out, enjoying a good meal with a better view would never hurt or even if you’re a walking person who just wants to walk around some delightful streets while listening to music, Zamalek is the place you would want to visit.

4. ZamalekDream Park

5. The Great Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha

Also known as the Alabaster Mosque, is one of the many impressive historic and religious monuments in Cairo, this place has wowed many of the tourists by its beauty and architecture complexity defiantly a place worth a visit.

6. The Cave Church of the Zabbaleen in Cairo

The Monastery of Saint Simon Also known as the cave church located in the Mokattam mountain in an area that is known as ‘garbage city’ now don’t let the name fool you that church got some of the best fresh air you will ever breathe yet it’s named as such because of the large population of garbage collectors or ‘’ Zabbaleen’’ that live there. The Zabbaleen are descendants of farmers who started migrating from Upper Egypt to Cairo back in the 1940s fleeing poor harvests and poverty they came to the city looking for work initially they stuck to their tradition and work, raising goats, chicken, pigs, and other animals but eventually found out that collecting and sorting waste is more profitable, now imagine this you’re a farmer and you’re collecting waste so the sorting and selling things of value and feeding the organic waste to their animals which was an excellent source of food at the time at arrangement worked so well that even more waves of migrants from Upper Egypt moved to Cairo, finally they settled under the cliffs of the Mokattam avoiding the municipal authorities until 1975 when the church was established making that beautifully placed religious wonder a place to visit regularly by Egyptians and foreigners of all kinds and religion.

7. Wadi Degla Protectorate

Wadi Degla Protectorate is literally minutes away from Maadi yet once you step in it feels like you teleported to the heart of nature itself, even if it might seem a bit weird to visit a Protectorate in the middle of the desert yet this place has a vibe of its own once you go there you’re automatically hooked by that magical atmosphere whether you’re an athlete wanting to climb or ride bikes, a family guy going for a picnic, a group of friends trying to party and have a good time or even if you’re having a bad day and just going there to meditate and get some peace of mind this place is defiantly worth visiting at least once a month.

And that is merely just scratching the surface, there are lots and lots of places to visit and things to do in Cairo you might just lose count.

The city is trying to make your trip to those places as hassle-free as it can get, Cairo’s got more transportations and different routes and bridges which are designed to get you to your destination as fast as possible, yet we need to agree with one thing nothing in life comes that simple, due to the city’s population the traffic in Cairo can be brutal at the best of times and that is an understatement.
