Cairo is the largest city on the continent of Africa, and also the most populated.
While first impressions may reveal an overcrowded, dirty, smog-filled, and noisy city, Cairo's museums, archaeological sites, and Islamic architecture
also make it a rather beautiful city.
Cairo, Egypt is located at about 30.05 degrees North latitude and 31.30 degrees East longitude.
Modern Cairo, distinguished by its contemporary Western culture, can be seen on the downtown east bank, in and about Liberation Square.
In addition to the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphynx, visitors may also wish to see the Citadel, the City of the Dead, and some of the more majestic mosques, such as the Sultan Hassan Mosque, the Ibn Tulun Mosque, and the Mosque of Al-Hakim.
Visitors who are looking for a museum experience can see many of the city's treasures at the Coptic Museum or the Egyptian Museum. Other entertainment can be found at the Arayes Puppet Theater or the Opera House.
Cairo has an interesting variety of shopping experiences. While there are plenty of contemporary malls that offer a more modern shopping experience, the old city bazaars, such as the Tentmakers' Bazaar and the Khan Al-Khalili Bazaar (or Khan El-Khalili Bazaar), are worth experiencing for their exotic smells, rare spices, and traditional music.
