Cairo - Egypt
If you come to Cairo, you know what you're gonna get:- Traffic jams madness, no rules, grey & grim messy streets and lots of tooting noise!. As far as travelling goes, you'll want to see the Pyramids, Museum, Cairo tower, the Memphis and Sphinx statue, perhaps even the Citadel, and also some of the amazing Mosques they have there. For me, I spent 7days in Cairo and it was probably 5 days to many. All of the main attractions could definately be done in one weekend, never the less was interesting.
Insider Tip:Avoid Taxis (unless ordered by a refutable firm or person) as most are conmen and try to ripoff. Do not give tips when asked, (should be the other way round) :), Be prepared for some eyewatering prices and quotes for anything touristy. At the pyramids don't buy into the myth about the camels/horses and guide keeping the hasslers away!. Not true. Keep as many low value money/notes on you as they often try to short change you on bigger sums. Be very careful in Cairo, as dishonesty there seems to be rife.,
