Being the largest metropolis in the Arab World, Cairo attracts countless numbers of tourists, students and ex-pats every year. Those looking to get a glimpse into Egypt’s history and experience the endless ways to keep the party going, will want to make sure a visit to Cairo is on their travel agenda – ASAP.


Choose well

Flying to Cairo has never been easier with four daily flights from the Etihad hub city of Abu Dhabi, Cairo is a short 3 and a half hours away offering greater choice and optimised timings to benefit business and leisure customers traveling point-to-point between the two cities.

Etihad is all about giving you the power to select what suits you best. After 15 years of award-winning service, the airline understands that not everyone travels the same.

Offering personalised selections and flexibility throughout the traveller’s journey, Etihad gives you the option to create a one of a kind journey everytime you fly.

The choices with Etihad begin even before you take to the sky, with dynamic choices in how you book to an airport pick up or even the ultimate in pre-flight hospitality with a visit to The House when flying from Sydney or Melbourne.

How would you want to celebrate with Etihad when you get there? Read on for three of our fave experiences…


1. Pub Crawl through old world buildings

Probably the only place you can go on a true pub crawl, Downtown Cairo is seething with unassuming venues that, once you step inside, transport you to a part of the city like no other.

From the legendary Cafe Riche and Estoril, to the Greek Club and Horreya, you’ll find every class and generation of Egyptians and foreigners alike convening at these affordable watering holes.


2. The Great Pyramids Lights Show


Let’s face it; the very first thing that comes to mind when you hear someone mention Cairo, are the Great Pyramids. They are after all, the country’s most recognizable landmark.

In fact, it is virtually impossible to visit Cairo without catching a glimpse of the Giza plateau and its most famous structures – the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx. Now, looking at them, walking the grounds, and even getting a brief tour of these ancient and amazing structures is definitely an unforgettable experience.

Nonetheless, you can now enjoy this experience even more, simply by visiting the site at night. Neat, huh?


3. Dinner cruise ON The Nile


Nile River dinner cruises are one of the most popular Cairo tourist attractions, and surprisingly enough, dinner cruises might not be your cheapest meal option, but they are nonetheless very affordable and uh-may-zing!

Who doesn’t want to sail down the most famous river in the world while eating traditional Egyptian cuisine? Crazy people – that’s who!

You could cruise for days, weeks even but if you have a few hours up your sleeve – you can knock it over in two hours and add it to your bucket list.
