More About The City

About Cairo, Egypt

The thing about Cairo is that it stimulates on so many levels. Say, for example, that history's your thing; does the whole, vast scope of the subject hold any phenomenon more fascinating than the pyramids? Or, if Egyptology doesn't grab you and you just want to shop, in this city you can flash your cash in upscale department stores or make hardened street bazaar traders offers they can't refuse. The most seasoned creatures of the night will raise an approving eyebrow at the breadth and depth of this city's nightlife. Those with a world view will observe how religions and cultures don't clash in Cairo but co-exist respectfully. As for the vibe, the 16 million people who live here create a whole lot of energy why not plug into it?
Cairo, Egypt Factoid
The African continent's most extensive and reliable rail system, the Cairo Metro currently maintains two lines (a third is under construction) and is, perhaps, the fastest, most efficient method for getting from A to B in this Old World city. Fares are inexpensive, and more than two million people ride the trains each day. Line 1 (red) runs from Helwan University to New El-Marg, Line 2 (yellow) connects Shobra El Kheima and El Monib, and Line 3 (green) is intended to link Mohandiseen and Embaba with Cairo International Airport.
