Book a flight to Cairo with Qatar Airways

Book a flight to Cairo with Qatar Airways and marvel at charming Egypt, land of adventure.

Cairo is arguably the world’s archaeological capital and certainly one of the Middle East’s most glamorous destinations. Nestled on the banks of the timeless River Nile, the city has a special relationship with the distant past and is steeped in legend and lore.

Museums, historic buildings and the imposing nearby pyramids will all make for an exhilarating experience.

Cairo highlights

Pyramids and Sphinx aside, Cairo is bursting with museums and monuments, celebrating both the recent and distant past. Also, don’t forget those glamorous Nile cruises.

  • Tourist attractions

    If you want the best view of the city, visit Cairo Tower on Gezira Island. The Egyptian Museum in Midan Al Tahrir houses the foremost collection of Egyptian antiquities in the world. And while the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx are undoubtedly Egypt’s most popular tourist attractions, make time for the famous Al-Azhar Mosque, the world’s oldest university.

    When you travel to Cairo, try to visit Abdeen Palace, former home to King Farouk, and Khan El Khalily, the main souq in the city, as both give you a unique insight into the historic and vibrant spirit of the Egyptian capital.

  • Leisure activities

    A great way of getting in touch with the life of the city is to sip mint tea in a café in the Khan El Khalili area. You also shouldn’t miss the chance to ride a felucca (a traditional Arab sailboat) along the Nile. For a less strenuous day out, take a walk in Giza Zoo, or watch some horse-racing at Zamalek’s Gezira Club.

    If you are travelling to Cairo with children, take them to Kidzania or Dream Park, two of the best theme parks in the city.

  • Food

    Cairo has dining options to suit all tastes. There are plenty of snack stalls and street restaurants at which to grab a bite, but if you’re looking for finer cuisine, you should head for the Nile boats and city hotels. The affluent parts of town, such as Heliopolis, Mohandiseen and Zamalek, are best for five-star gourmet dining.

    Traditional Egyptian staples are served everywhere, but it’s always wise to avoid empty venues, as it may be a sign that the food there may be less than fresh.

  • Shopping

    You can find just about any retail experience in Cairo, from small souvenirs to top-of-the-line designer goods. Most of the more upscale shops are to be found in the affluent suburbs, such as the malls in the 6th of October and Heliopolis districts.

    Nasr City, a newer development, has the largest shopping mall in Cairo. Named City Stars, it contains outlets for many international brands, as well as an amusement park and numerous global food chains. You could easily spend a day of your trip there, browsing the stores or just relaxing with a coffee.
