About Cairo

Egypt's capital city of Cairo is one of civilization's ancient cities. If you are a history lover, you can go to the Pyramids of Giza or the Cairo Museum and walk the halls of ancient Egyptian civilization while learning about what the Pharaohs believed the afterlife held in store. At the same time, Cairo is a modern metropolis. The banks of the Nile River are crowded with a forest of skyscrapers including several famous hotels. This is a great place to enjoy the scenery of the Nile. Cairo holds a vast mix of many different cultures. There is a profusion of Coptic art and Islamic-style culture to discover throughout the city. Cairo unfolds like a beautiful story out of “1001 Arabian Nights”.

Officially called the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, downtown Cairo's star attraction feels more like the warehouse of Indiana Jones than a traditional museum. Like the rest of Egypt, the organization may be a bit chaotic but it's worth it to spend at least half a day wandering the museum's two main floors. The highlight of the Pharonic treasures here are without a doubt the mummies of famous Egyptian Pharaohs. Queen Hatshepsut is the most recently discovered mummy here, while the remains of King Tutankhamen's tomb is the most visited attraction; check out the the 24-pound gold mask of King Tut's face.

The Nile River is a river that flows through the eastern and northern parts of Africa. It is injected into the Mediterranean Sea from south to north. It is the mother river of Egypt. The sailboat on the Nile is a beautiful view of the Nile. It rides on a sailboat and blows the wind of the Nile. It is very pleasant.
