1. The city is massive and extends for miles in every direction. You get a birds-eye view of all the major landmarks and you can finally orient yourself. 2. Seeing the pyramids from a distance is pretty cool. It also drove home the point that they are right next to the city.3. Sports are important for Egyptians. You will see massive sports complexes, soccer stadiums, swimming pools, and parks from the tower.4. The smog in Cairo is horrible. You can literally see the pollution that you sense when you are stuck in all the traffic.
This was a relaxing way to end the day. Everything else I did had a sense of chaos, but I really got to unwind at the top of Cairo tower.

The cost was 50 EGP, which included a drink and a slice of cake in the rotating restaurant. We tried to get a ticket without the cake and drink, but were told that this ticket didn’t allow us to the top of the tower!!! There is an extra cost for a video camera, but cameras are free. You can buy an all-inclusive meal ticket for the rotating restaurant if you so wish, but it did seem rather tacky when we were having our cake.
