CRUISE INTO EGYPT’S PAST
Many say that a trip to Cairo is not complete without taking a ride on a “felucca,” a long wooden sail boat that historically once carried everything from pharaohs and military troops to food and supplies.
The First Mall at the First Residence Complex
When weather interferes with your plans or you tire of sightseeing, the First Mall is a shopper's paradise. High-end brands like Rolex, Bally, and Tiffany & Co abound. A five-star brasserie is perfect for sipping a latte and celebrity-spotting.
The Pyramids of Giza
In less than a hour by car you can tour these ancient structures, or simply gaze upon them from a room or restaurant at the Hotel. Originally constructed for King Cheops and his kin, the largest is one of the only remaining 7 Wonders of the World.
Nile Cruise Boats
A passage on one of these vessels designed to mimic ancient Pharaonic Papyrus boats includes an open buffet and outdoor bar. The evening cruise features a band, folklore show and belly dancing. A hit with groups and families with children.
