Cairo: When to Book
Mother Of All Cities
Whether it is a Guest House, Hotel or Apartment if you plan to visit Cairo during it is advisable to book early to ensure you acquire suitable accommodation. Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar is a particularly busy time as many Muslims travel to Egypt's capital to join in the festivities or holiday with their families living there. Unlike many tourist destinations Christmas and Easter are quieter than most places as these festive periods are not celebrated by Muslims, though many Christians live in and visit Cairo around these times so it is wise to book earlier to avoid disappointment. Last minute bookings are available if you are hu8nting for a bargain, though the standard of accommodation can't be guaranteed.
