Cairo is the capital of Egypt and, with a total population in excess of 16 million people, one of the largest cities in both Africa and the Middle East (which regions it conveniently straddles) - it is also the 13th largest city in the world. Situated on the River Nile, Cairo is famous for its own history - preserved in the fabulous medieval Islamic city and in Old Cairo - and for the ancient, Pharaonic history of the country it represents. No trip to Cairo would be complete, for example, without a visit to the Giza Pyramids, to nearby Saqqara, or to the Egyptian Museum in the center of town. Though firmly attached to the past, Cairo is also home to a vibrant modern society.
What People Are Saying
Stefan from Amsterdam, Netherlands loves to see the hotels and prices on a map
I love to see the available hotels on the map. I move and zoom the map a lot. It's so easy to filter
out the hotels that are too far from my preferred location. I also like seeing the hotel prices at a
glance on the map markers.
This hotel booking tool has saved me both a lot of time and money.
Anna from St. Petersburg, Russia thinks the budget tools and prices are great
Thanks for a cool new way of booking hotels! On our family trips, we are used to filter the hotels
based on our budget. Now we can quickly see the hotels that offer the best deals and that are
conveniently located close by the most interesting sights.
The prices on TripSay are always great.
Juan from Barcelona, Spain recommends this site to travelers who know what they want
I found a hotel quickly using the advanced filters. Booking the hotel was easy and straight-forward.
I require a wi-fi, non-smoking room and location near the airport or main railway station. Finally
it's easy to find a hotel that suits me. I recommend this tool to other travelers as well.
When you move around in the street of Cairo in the evening, move fast and avoid confrontation with native people. If possible, don't do it at all in the evenings, or at least, do it in a group. Tourists have had to face this sad fact in many occasions.
