Cairo - Egypt's Umm Ad Dunya (Mother of the World), bubbles day and night with commotion. Call to prayers echo from minarets, while honking horns blare from the streets and motorbikes roar past from every direction in this wonderfully hectic city. This mega-city is home to some 150 neighbourhoods and over 22 million inhabitants, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that it is a constant hive of activity. Split in two by the river Nile, the city is comprised of the Right and Left Banks. On the Right Bank you’ll find Tahir Square and the Qasr El Nil Street - one of the biggest streets in the city. On the Left Bank,
discover the ancient city of Giza and its magnificent pyramids. During your Cairo holiday make sure to browse the extensive collection of Egyptian antiquities in the Egyptian Museum and take a stroll through the colourful Khan El-Khalili bazaar bursting at the seams with stalls selling everything from fragrant spices to stained glass lamps.
