Here's why to book cheap flights to Cairo!!
The Pyramids. The Sphinx. The Nile. Welcome to Cairo. The “City of a Thousand Minarets” is ready to sweep you off your feet. No need to hop a camel; cheap flights to Cairo bring the Egyptian experience to you.
The ultimate Egyptian icons await you. As your flights descend, see the Great Pyramids of Giza (just outside the city.) Ponder the riddle of the Sphinx, ride camels and horses in the desert, and stick around for the Pyramids Sound and Light Show. This spectacular light display with narrative rounds out any visit to Giza. Tour inside the Pyramids, or get away from the crowds and explore the lesser known Queen’s Pyramids. Budding Egyptologists and history buffs venture on to Saqqara for the Step Pyramid of Djoser and other Old Kingdom wonders. In Egypt's bustling downtown, the Egyptian Museum showcases countless rare antiquities and royal mummies.
Cheap tickets to Cairo get you more than the remains of old Pharaohs. The 4th century Babylon Fortress is the oldest structure in the city. In and around the Fortress are numerous Coptic churches, including the famous Hanging Church. Unlike a “hanging judge,” this church hangs suspended over a Fortress gatehouse. While in Old Cairo, indulge your inner Cleopatra (or Mark Antony) with a cruise down the Nile.
See some of the “Thousand Minarets” in Islamic Cairo. Visitors stroll around this district to see mosques, madrasas and other architectural wonders spanning centuries. Your airline tickets are tickets back in time when you visit Cairo. Bayt al-Sihaymi is a preserved 16th century merchant home, offering a glimpse at life in Ottoman times. Haggle like an Arab trader at the nearby Khan el-Khalili, Cairo’s enormous souk, or market. Find anything from fresh local produce and souvenirs to textiles and jewelry. The 17th century Tent Market is another option in this district for all the baksheesh burning a hole in your pocket.
Take flights to Cairo to relax and unwind. Get cheap flights and head to a cafe for strong Egyptian coffee and flavored shisha, or tobacco smoked in a water pipe. La Wien, in Heliopolis, has some of the best coffee in Cairo. Have it with a slice of basbousa, sweet syrupy semolina cake. For a truly exotic experience, head over to Fratelli’s in Mohandiseen to try their shisha, blended with flavors like guava or vanilla. Don’t leave Cairo without trying the popular street food kushari, a hearty dish of lentils, chickpeas, rice and macaroni topped with spicy tomato sauce, fried onions, and garlic sauce. (Just be sure to brush before you hop on your flights.)
