Cairo – The Overall Best Place to Stay in Egypt

It likely comes as no surprise that Cairo is the overall best city to stay in Egypt. As the country’s capital city, Cairo is Egypt’s nerve center. With over 19.5 million inhabitants in just the city of Cairo alone, Cairo is a megacity, by far the largest in all of Egypt. Also, Cairo is set right on the famous Nile River, which winds through the sprawling city.

Obviously, the best thing to do in Cairo is to see the site of the Great Pyramids, and to get to pet a camel!

Visiting the Egyptian Museum simply cannot be missed. With ancient mummies and thousands of artefacts from the last 5,000 years, this museum isn’t just another museum— it’s truly jaw-dropping!

Make sure to spend some time exploring the Khan el-Khalili bazaar, and pick up all your favorite souvenirs, from lamps to jewellery to belly dancer outfits.

Best Places to Stay in Cairo

Cairo is truly a sprawling city, and it’s important to keep in mind that there are two different parts of Cairo, Central Cairo and Greater Cairo. As the name implies, Central Cairo is close to all the action with neighborhoods like Downtown Cairo, Giza, and Zamalek. Greater Cairo is comprised of new developments that have sprouted up over the years that can be best described as the suburbs.

Since Cairo covers so much ground, it’s better to stay close to the city center to easily explore the best that Cairo has to offer.
