    Pyramids of Giza

    Cairo, Egypt
    141 reviews

    A wonder of the world. The touts surrounding it may drive you crazy but hard to walk away from the pyramids without being incredibly impressed. Note: tickets are required go inside the pyramids themselves. Be sure to check in advance so that you know when to line up and where. Don't buy anything from the guys on the street and ...

    Egyptian Museum

    Tahrir Square, Cairo Egypt
    89 reviews

    One of my favourite museums in the world just because of the way it is. Some absolute masterpieces of one of the world's greatest civilisations. And yes, there's King Tut's death mask too. Two tips: come at around 4pm and miss the coach parties; and, ignore the men outside who as you approach the building will tell you it's closed ...

    The Sphinx

    Al Qebleyah, Al Azbakeyah, Egypt
    63 reviews

    Well worth a visit. Temple of the River, associated with the Great Pyramid. Disappointed upon exit to have a Burger King right in front of me, destroyed the moment

    Great Pyramid of Khufu

    Giza Plateau, Giza 12561 Egypt
    49 reviews

    Amazing visually. It's not as mystical as it's portrayed in the movies because it's right by the city and there are plenty of sales people trying to get you to buy stuff or rent their camels. Some are nicer than others. Some renters don't worry too much about your safety. You can't climb the pyramids since they're guarded by military ...

    Khan El Khalili-bazaar

    Cairo, Cairo (Area), Egypt
    56 reviews

    I was offered 20,000 camels in exchange for my hand in marriage at this bazaar, so I can't knock it too much. There are a lot of quality items sold here: silk scarves, beautiful jewelry, and, my personal favorite, the glass perfume bottles filled with your own personalized scent. There are also a lot of chachka stalls that fill this ...

    Djemaa el Fna

    Rue de la Koutoubia, Marrakech, Morocco
    44 reviews

    Some snobby people write this place off as "touristy." I don't get it. Yes, of course, the place is crammed with tourists, because you can't go to Marrakech and skip the place, or even go anywhere without passing through it. But there are plenty of Moroccans here as well, and all the storytellers and snake charmers and just random weird ...

    Medina of Marrakesh

    29 reviews

    The medina is an interesting place. You'll see sheep heads, next to candles, leather bags, and motor cycle parts. Every body wants to sell you their stuff. There's only one simple rule: they will never sell for a price they're not happy with. So try to go as low as you can. If you want to get an idea of ...

    The Citadel

    Salah Salem Highway, Cairo Egypt
    25 reviews

    A must see in Cairo and not far from the other sights of the Islamic part of town. A complex consisting of a couple of mosques, including Mohammed Ali. We hated the Citadel view restaurant... which for some reason seems to be linked to this same entry. Not sure why.

    Tahrir Square

    Cairo, Egypt
    36 reviews

    Turns out the revolution WAS televised and it all went down here, right in the heart of downtown Cairo at Tahrir (Liberation) Square. When I was there before the revolution, however, this was one of my favorite place to go skateboarding in Cairo because I could grind the pink granite benches and sail across the silky-smooth surfaces in front of ...

    This place was the highlight to my overnight stay at Casablanca - the best place to visit is in the afternoon.

    A great day trip to this pyramid is well worth the drive. It is also known as the step pyramid, a familiar design with all pyramids throughout the world.

    Cairo Tower

    Cairo, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
    23 reviews

    The entrance has 2 fees, one for local and other for foreigners. Tower inside was quite dirty and I didn't dare to drink or eat on the coffee shop at the top. The view from the top is interesting, but the town is in brawn sands fog and this makes it not exciting as well the houses are in this ...

    Sound & Light Show at the Pyramids of Giza

    Giza Pyramids Plateau, Giza Egypt
    15 reviews

    Highly recommend checking this out. When of the more spectacular things to see while in Cairo. It is also a family friendly event to attend. Maybe a little pricey but worth it If you are in the area visiting the Pyramids during the day, then go to dinner nearby and wait for the sun to go down and check this ...

    Medina, Marrakesh Morocco
    20 reviews

    Simply another world. You may walk around forever, but you are never that far from where you started. I prefer going where no tourists are...and that is easy to do in a Souk.
