Don’t fret if you are still on that perennial quest to find a magic lamp from which a genie emerges after you rub it the right way. Even without a magic carpet to take you places, you can still go on magical holidays to Egypt and be enchanted no less. Egypt is of course known for one of the Seven Wonders of the World: the Pyramids of Giza. No trip to Egypt will be complete without basking in the glory of these pyramids. This is one of the sites most frequented by eager tourists. Here are tips on how to get to the Pyramids of Giza from downtown Cairo:

Here are tips on how to get to the Pyramids of Giza from downtown Cairo:

Go to the main bus station downtown which is found at Midan Abdel Moniem Riad.  Ask around for the buses headed for Giza, Sharia-al-Haram, the Great Pyramid of Khufu or the Sphynx.  Hop on the bus and pay your fare.

You will then arrive at Sharia-al-Haram which is the extension of Pyramids Road at the base of the Great Pyramid of Khufu.  Then, take the tarmacked road up the plateau going to the pyramids.  You will find the ticket hut where you can pay the entrance fees.

It’s not so difficult to get to this wonder of the world.  Who knows, you might find your own Aladdin in this part of the world…
