Key Travel Information for Cairo

Cairo combines ancient monuments with modern amenities for travellers on leisure or business visits. Ebookers can help you find cheap flights to Cairo from domestic locations.

Flights to Cairo

Flights to Cairo arrive at Cairo International Airport. The airport features a large number of currency exchange offices and duty-free gift options. Many public transport options run from the baggage claim area into the city proper, and a free shuttle bus runs to the city hub from the airport every half hour. Taxis are available for those looking to avoid public transport. Fees on city buses can vary throughout the day and are often higher at night, when the city's nightlife takes over. Ebookers can help you find transit options to and from your lodging or meeting areas.

Lodging Options in the City

Hotels provide most of the lodging options in Cairo. Budget hotels often offer a discount over the mid-range properties found in tourist areas. Many hotels provide tourist assistance in the local languages and English. The nicest hotels in the city lie along the banks of the famous Nile River, offering amenities befitting some of the most luxurious resorts in the world. Let ebookers help you find the best hotel for the needs of your group or family.

Food Venues in the City

Food in Cairo ranges from small stands offering regional dishes to top-notch formal dining establishments. Most food in the area includes tastes ranging from traditional Egyptian dishes to modern Middle Eastern and Asian influences. The downtown and tourist-heavy Giza districts also offer Western fast food to hungry travellers in those areas. Ebookers offers recommendations for dining based on the area around your hotel or event venue.

Tours of Cairo

Tours of Cairo range from simple affairs that walk groups through the highlights of the city to multiple-day adventures to the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Many tours take travellers through the city's many museums and historic art galleries, and tour guides offer services in a variety of languages. Tours may include discount options for meals and accommodations, especially over the course of longer trips. Let the ebookers online planner services help you create a tour custom-suited to your needs.

Points of Interest

The Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx provide only one stop for those seeking adventure in one of the most ancient sites in the known world. Visitors may wish to visit the Egyptian Museum to view some of the most famous artefacts from antiquity, and the Citadel and Mosque of Mohamed Ali Pasha in the city's Islamic district features architecture that dates back to the founding of modern-day Egypt. A large collection of animals awaits tourists at the Giza Zoo, including many creatures not normally seen outside of the Egyptian desert. Citystars offers shopping options for those looking for both local goods and those shipped in from all over the world, while the International Language Institute offers short seminars on foreign cultures and ancient languages. Ebookers can help you find cheap flights to Cairo to create an exciting itinerary that fulfils the wishes of your entire group or family.

Things to do in Cairo

Cairo is a notoriously challenging place for the independent traveler, a kind of coordinated chaos. The iconic city on the Nile has 15 million-plus inhabitants that run the gamut from lepers to the mega-rich. Its convoluted webs of car- and smog-choked streets are daunting to navigate, and no matter where you go, persistent touts pester from every direction. But what keeps drawing vacationers is Cairo’s buzz of eclectic energy. Built upon thousands of years of civilization, even Cairo’s most touristy attractions can astonish and overwhelm. The Egyptian Museum, with its mazelike stacks of mummies and King Tut artifacts, is one of the best in the world. Similarly, the city’s souks (local marketplaces)—like the 700-year-old Khan al-Khalili—are worthy of the trip alone for their frenetic atmospheres and incredible range of local goods.

Cairo When to Go

The high season, from October to April, generally offers the mildest conditions. But the mildest temperatures still bring midday sun beating down, and winter nights can prove surprisingly chilly to those unaccustomed to desert extremes. When it does rain (though it’s unlikely), it’s usually in winter.

Weather-wise, the most challenging time to visit Cairo is summer, when temperatures soar and nights offer little respite. The low season runs from May to September, but July and August are the hottest months. Visitors that don’t mind a little warmth can find deals in May without suffering the full brunt of the summer heat. But don’t jump too quickly: Spring is also sandstorm season. Sweltering dusty winds blow up from the Sahara and make the city barely breathable.

Cairo has long-standing populations of major religious groups and past colonial powers, so it’s possible to find celebrations for most every major holiday. Islam, however, is the prevailing force here, and the month of Ramadan is one of the most pronounced Islamic holidays. It happens in July or August, and during this time, some shops and restaurants may stay closed during the daytime fast. After sundown, the city will erupt with feasts and celebrations that last into the early hours.
