Tahrir Square, Meret Basha, Qasr an Nile, Egypt
Let ancient Egyptian treasures bedazzle you at the museumThe Cairo Museum is absolutely brimming with treasures. From artefacts found in the pyramids to ancient papyrus scrolls, the beautifully designed sarcophaguses to canopic jars, the jewels of the rulers to their well preserved mummified bodies, it's Christmas come early so history lovers. Don't miss out on the mummy room where Ramses II's body is kept along with many others under temperature control. Also a must-visit is the room which holds King Tutankhamen's famous gold mask. This should definitely be on your things to do in Egypt list.

Bab Al Louq, Abdin, Egypt
Khan el-Khalili, once known as the Turkish bazaar during the Ottoman period, is now usually just called the 'Khan', and the names of it and the Muski market are often used interchangeably to mean either.

About Cairo

  DAY 1 // CairoCairo was dirty, unkept, unstable and chaotic like most of Bangkok, although far worse – and I loved it, but hated it all the same. I was expecting this as this is what Cairo is, especially with the daily and sometimes fatal protests that were going on at Tahrir Square which was literally a walk away from my accommodation, Brothers Hostel. Most people probably think downtown Cairo is physically ugly, and I agree somewhat. I see it as ugly-beautiful. The almost uniform color shades of yellow and yellowish grey of the architecture where nearly all buildings are falling apart has a certain character to it, something I have never seen in a big city. Even as a native New Yorker that has travelled to 16 countries , it took me some getting used to. The next day I visited the Egyptian Museum.
