Tips for trip to Cairo, Egypt?
Have any of your guys been to Egypt before?
My wife has a conference for work that's going to be in Cairo during the last week of January. I think I'm going to tag along for the trip and do some sight-seeing while I'm there. I've never really looked into an Egypt trip though, so have no clue what to do outside of the Pyramids :confused: My wife will be working during the day at the conference for the most part, so I'm going to need to find things to do on my own during the daytime.
So, anyone visited before? What are all the can't miss things to do in Cairo? Obviously, I'm planning to go and see all the pyramids, sphinx, and the like. I know there are a few awesome Mosques and buildings to check out. I'd love to do some Scuba diving in the Red Sea, but I'm thinking that'll be too far to go for a day trip. I'm pretty big into photography, so I'll probably spend a lot of my free time taking pictures.
Any tips for good places to visit, places to eat, regular events to watch?
With the hotel and most of our meals covered by her per diem, it's seems like a great chance to check out somewhere new :clap: Thanks guys!
