5 Places You Must Visit in Cairo During Your Egypt Trips

With an Egypt trip package, you may find yourself in the land of the pyramids this season. With the holiday season just round the corner, it can be a great time to plan a foreign trip. And what better than Egypt to spend a few quiet and exciting days at a place where spook, history and mystery live together.

Egypt's favorite city Cairo is the most happening tourist destination. The capital pulls in thousands of tourists every year from all parts of the world. Though the city has a string of attractions of various genres, here are five attractions you must not miss out on:

1. Giza's Pyramids: The chief reason why people buy Egypt trip package is to see the pyramids. Giza has the most famed pyramids in the country. Besides, the Great Pyramid of Khufu is also located here. It is the tallest of the lot and is extremely daunting in its build. Giza's pyramids definitely make you feel as if you have wandered away into another part of the planet.

2. Sphinx of Giza: You must have heard and read a lot about the Great Sphinx of Giza. Now it is the time to see it from your own eyes. At Giza, standing tall amidst a chain of pyramids lays this figure that has the face of a human being and the body of a lion. This sphinx is a mythological creature and often finds a mention in fantasy tales. Even the Harry Potter series of books has a mention of it in the fourth book when a sphinx asks a riddle to Harry during the Triwizard Tournament. So, a sphinx, as such, has a very strong reputation for being enigmatic.

3. Egyptian Museum: Another reason why an Egypt trip package should be on the top of your mind this season is this fascinating museum where some of the most notorious mummies have been kept in an embalmed state. Of them, the most famous one is that of Tutankhamen who was the youngest Pharaoh and died in a mysterious fashion at a very young age. There are still debates regarding the nature of his death. By and large, it is believed that he was murdered though the exact causes are mere conjectures.

4. The Citadel: The Citadel is a religious attraction and a popular tourist spot. Cairo boasts of a number of mosques and other religious points as well. The Citadel has a powerful history behind it and its religious nature makes it mandatory for the tourists to dress up appropriately. Revealing dresses are strictly inadvisable as wearing them may compel the officials to turn you away.

5. Khan el Khalili Bazaar: An Egypt trip package will help you to walk through one of the most famous traditional markets in the world. Cairo's Khan el Khalili bazaar is a place where you can buy anything from fruits to souvenirs. Just remember to bargain very hard.
