About Cairo

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”.

Museum
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. Visitors usually choose to visit the Nile River at night, not only to enjoy the night view of Cairo, but also to watch a wonderful belly dance or Sufi dance performance.

Islamic Cairo refers to the part of the old city of Cairo, which was approved by UNESCO in 1979 as a World Cultural Heritage. The ancient city of Cairo in Egypt is located in the eastern part of downtown Cairo in Egypt. Apart from a few ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman cultures, it mainly reflects Islamic culture. Because of the majority of people and their belief in Islam, many mosques have been built, and there are still more than 500 ancient mosques in the old city. If you have been to Istanbul, do you feel familiar? How can this mosque be like the Blue Mosque? Then take out the photos taken before and compare. This Mosque, if you search for information, is really an imitation of the Blue Mosque, and has a long history. The Ali Mosque is located in the Saladin Citadel on the Mugetam Mountain in the eastern suburbs of Cairo. This castle was built by Saladin to resist the invasion of the Crusaders. Tickets are 60 HKD per person.

Most of Egypt's land is in the desert. The vast desert area in the western part of the Nile is known as the western desert and is part of the Sahara Desert. The Bahariyya Oasis is 365 km from Cairo, and the black and white desert is between Bahariyya and Farafa. The "chicken stewed mushrooms" naturally cooked in the white desert is a more interesting thing I learned. A few days ago, my sisters inadvertently talked about the chicken stewed mushrooms. It turned out to be this dish. The beauty here is not like the other parts of the earth. The men will play the drums, and you can hear the rhythm and laughter. I liked to spend time here.
