    How safe is it to be in Cairo and around as woman on her own and any recommendations what to do there?

    Cairo is a safe place to be. However, always consider your dress code as Egypt is a conservative country. 12 things must do in Cairo 1. Visit the Giza Plateau where you will watch the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx 2. Visit the Egyptian Antiquities Museum and enjoying watching the massive amount of artifacts on display. 3. The Citadel is one of the most important visits in Cairo. Where you will watch the huge construction as well as the Mohamed Ali Mosque and the various museums 4. Watch the amazing Giza Sound and Light show by the Pyramids. 5. Spending a day in the Pharaonic Village will give you a chance to travel backwards to ancient times, where everything is built to give you this feeling. 6. Take a Felucca ride down the Nile by sunset while watching the sun as it dims its light over Cairo and enjoy the gentle breeze during your ride. 7. Horse back riding or Camel trekking in the desert with a panoramic view of the Giza Pyramids. 8. Go shopping to Khan EL- Khalili where you can buy souvenirs of all kinds. You can also try smoking Shisha or water pipe there while drinking a cup of coffee or tea. Or you can go to the Khan Misr Toulun special Bazaar http://www.egyptholidaysdirectory.com/listing/khan-misr-touloun.html 9. Go to "Kerdasa" where you can shop for oriental "Galabias" and belly dancers outfits. 10. Try eating the traditional Egyptian beans called "Foul" and "Ta'ameya" in the many small restaurants available all over the country. 11. Drink a freshly squeezed juice from the many fruit stalls located in any street in Cairo 12. Cruise down the Nile for a couple of hours while enjoying a luxurious dinner accompanied with an oriental show. Or simply take a walk along the Nile River to get in contact with the real Egyptians. As for transportation to Cairo,there are East Delta buses from Sharm El Sheikh to Cairo daily if you would like public transportation. Hope that you enjoy your stay over 10 years ago

    Please recommend a good, economical business hotel in Cairo that is centrally located.

    For 3* stars hotels Victoria hotel Cairo is a very good hotel it is 10 minutes from down town by taxi Cosmpolitan hotel is located in down town a walking distance from the Egyptian museum. Concord hotel in Tahrir street is a good one as well. Victoria hotel is located in Mohandessin and it has very good reviews from travelers but you have to go to down town by taxi ( Mohandessed is a good area near all shops and many food stores are walking distance) 5 stars If you are looking for a 5 stars hotel. Shepheard Hotel Cairo is one of the best hotels for business travelers due to its location in down town Cairo and overlooking the Nile. over 10 years ago
