What can one say about Cairo and Egypt that has not been said before? It is an exotic, fascinating, vibrant, yet welcoming city! The unfamiliar, yet well known, pyramids instantly make you feel at home. Walk down the meandering paths that take you through the medieval marketplace, take a look at the thousands of antiquities in the Egyptian Museum, or spend some time in the gorgeous parks and gardens and so on! There are several mid range as well as budget accommodations to choose from, apart from upscale luxury options.
