Cairo ("The City of a Thousand Minarets") is a popular destination for tourists with hotels suitable for all budgets. Founded in 969 AD, it is the centre of Egypt's cultural life, displaying a vast range of Islamic architecture. Cairo is known in Arabic as al-Qahirah, which means "The Conqueror." It is also known as Umm al-Dounia, meaning "The Mother of the World."
You cannot have a trip to Cairo without visiting the three Pyramids in Giza (nine miles from the city centre), the only surviving Wonder of the World. It is recommended to go as early as you can as it can get crowded very quickly. Be sure to also visit the Sphinx located nearby. If you book into the Mena House Hotel, you might even see these from your window of your room.
