Cairo is the capital city of Egypt, and the biggest city in the Arab world, a group of 22 countries that primarily speak the Arabic language. The city is also the biggest in the entire Middle East and the sixth-largest city worldwide. Cairo is heavily linked to ancient Egypt and is home to the world-renowned Pyramids of Giza and other historic landmarks such as the Great Sphinx.
A city of physical contrast, Cairo is the definition of East meets West with its mix of ancient and modern appearance. While the city is filled with countless historic landmarks and sites that have been around since ancient times, they are almost overshadowed. Skyscrapers, high-rise hotels, and other complexes highlight Cairo’s status as a booming metropolis.
Despite the chaos of the city, Cairo provides visitors with the possibility to explore some of the greatest wonders and cultural treasures in the world. Doing so will be an experience that they likely won’t forget. Make your trip less troublesome and more carefree by using Bounce’s self-storage services during your stay.

Top Things to Do
Cairo is of the world’s most exciting megacities. A trip to Cairo is a roller coaster ride that’s truly worth experiencing. A metropolis that’s rich in history and full of life and noise, Cairo is a one-of-a-kind place to explore, whether you end up loving or hating it. Below are some of the spots to see, as recommended by Bounce.
With its mix of ancient Egyptian to Coptic and Islamic history, Cairo truly has one of the world’s most vibrant cultures. Aside from its splendid landmarks and architecture, the city is chock-full of museums that showcase its exciting and unique history. Visiting all of them might be difficult, especially if you’re short on time. To narrow down your list, here’s a selection of must-see Cairo museums.
Museum of Egyptian Antiquities: Also known as the Egyptian Museum, this two-story facility is the biggest and arguably the most popular museum in all of Cairo. Situated downtown, the museum features over 120,000 relics and artifacts that have been collected since the ancient times. See Tutankhamen’s death mask, jewelry dug up from tombs, and even mummies found during the 19th century. (Bag policy: Big bags aren’t allowed inside the museum, but there’s a small office where they can hold guests’ items. For more security, store your bag with Bounce before your visit.)
Coptic Museum: When Jesus died, Coptic Christianity became prevalent in Egypt and inspired millions of followers. Located in Old Cairo, the Coptic Museum gives a peek into the influence of the religion in Cairo and the whole of Egypt. Here, you will find a vast collection of Coptic artifacts such as papyrus manuscripts and monastery frescoes. (Bag policy: As with most museums, The Coptic Museum does not allow guests to carry oversized bags.)
Museum of Islamic Art: Found in Central Cairo, this museum is one of the world's most significant facilities that specialize in Islamic art. The Museum of Islamic Art is home to more than 100,000 artifacts and works of Islamic heritage that originate not just from Egypt but also from other Arab and non-Arab nations. (Bag policy: Bags being brought inside the venue have size limits. To avoid any inconvenience, leave your items with Bounce beforehand.)
It might not seem like it, but Cairo is actually an incredible place for shopping. The city is filled with all sorts of retail options – from malls and sophisticated shops to flea markets and “souqs” (bazaars) that offer the best bargains. The city is also a great place to shop for trinkets and souvenirs that cannot be easily found elsewhere. Here are some of the must-see shopping areas in Cairo.
Khan Al-Khalili: The biggest and most popular souq in Cairo, the Khan Al-Khalili has been around since the 14th century and is the ultimate shopping destination in the city. In the area, you can find just about everything imaginable – from fabrics and homeware to spices and leather goods. The souq is also one of the best places to shop for jewelry and gold. After a full day of shopping, you can relax in spots such as Al Fishawy, the city’s oldest café.
Nomad: Found in the affluent area of Zamalek, Nomad is a prominent shop specializing in Bedouin costumes and crafts as well as jewelry. The pieces sold here are proudly handcrafted and made by an extensive network of local artisans. It’s a fantastic place to shop for one-of-a-kind souvenirs and items that you probably won’t find anywhere else.
Cairo Festival City Mall: This massive mall covers 158,000 square meters and is one of the most popular in the city. At Cairo Festival City Mall, you will see some recognizable names such as H&M, Zara, Debenhams, and the world-famous furniture store, IKEA. The mall also features a village area equipped with restaurants, an amphitheater, and a water fountain.
The local dining scene in Cairo has seen a growth in popularity. Aside from the authentic local food served everywhere, more and more options for international flavors have become available thanks in large part to the city’s booming expat community. While Cairo has several excellent restaurants to choose from, the following are eateries that you must try when in the city.
Fayruz Lebanese Restaurant: As its name suggests, the star of Fayruz is Lebanese cuisine, and you won’t find a place that does it any better. The eatery has an excellent and authentic atmosphere and is known for delicious Lebanese meat, particularly the lamb.
Naguib Mahfouz: Named after the famous Egyptian writer and Nobel Prize winner, this restaurant is one of the top spots in the city to get an authentic Egyptian dining experience. It’s located in the famous Khan Al-Khalili market and offers ala carte and several-course meals. It’s also a bonus that the qualified staff is amiable and everything screams traditional Egyptian culture.
Zooba: Putting their own modern twist on Egyptian street food, Zooba has made a name for itself not just in Cairo but in the whole country of Egypt. Affordable and delectable, Zooba proudly uses only the freshest local ingredients for their dishes. Some of the meals you can expect at Zooba are chicken liver hawashi, shawarma, and whole-grain koshari.
