The city was founded more than 1000 years ago by the Fatimid Dynasty, and is nicknamed “The City of a Thousand Minarets”. Right from its humble beginnings, Cairo has been a focal point for Egyptian culture, politics, and commerce. The city has a population of close to 17 million people in the metro area and covers an impressive 450 square kilometres. Cairo has had a tumultuous history, even coming under control of Britain for a while. It gained independence from British colonial rule when Egypt declared independence in 1922, and has been on the upward move ever since.
Many people consider Cairo to be the most important city in Africa. Not only do Cairo's hotels attract millions of tourists each year, but they are also very attractive to business customers, given how the city has experienced considerable economic development over the past few decades. Well over two-thirds of all Egyptian companies are based in the Greater Cairo area, including many publishers and film companies. There are many Cairo hotels that offer special rates for business customers and are located close to the capital's international airport. Once you have arrived, and concluded your business, you can take a few hours to explore. Of course, the top attraction for most visitors are the Great Pyramids of Giza. The Egyptian Museum is also well worth a visit as it houses the best collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts in the whole world. Whether you are coming for a conference or a weekend away, Cairo has everything you could need to keep you entertained all hours of the day.
As is to be expected of a capital city of its stature, there are a multitude of internationally renowned hotels in Cairo catering to your every need. Indeed there are two hotels owned by the Four Seasons chain that are among the most exclusive Cairo hotels. Given Cairo's international role, you can expect the city to have world class transportation options. The Cairo International Airport is the second largest in all of Africa, and is very well connected to airports around the world. Cairo has an extensive metro and train network that is relatively easy to use and quite efficient. The Main railway station, Ramses Station is your main departure and arrival point to and from cities all over Egypt. Buses are probably the most popular mode of transport in Africa, and you can catch a bus to Cairo from almost anywhere on the continent. Taxis are available everywhere in Cairo. Make sure you pick one that is metered and carry exact change for the fare if you can.
