There are a vast array of shops, hotels and even spa treatments which means if you are among the people who would like to treat themselves then there are no shortage of options.

Plenty of people enjoy the sunshine which means as soon as they arrive in Egypt they can't wait to use swimming pools. A number of hotels in Cairo now have salt water in their pools as opposed to chlorine and quite a few holidaymakers believe that's a fantastic idea.

Egypt is a Muslim country and beginning at 6 o'clock every morning people start to pray for the first of five times every day. There is a Mohamed Ali Mosque that is the symbol of Cairo. It's called that because there was a man known as Mohamed Ali (1769 - 1849) who was born in Cavalia, Greece and was of Albanian origin. He had been a soldier in the army that had been sent to Egypt to liberate them from Napoleon's occupation. Hence in the end he helped to free the nation and today people pray for him.
