Episode 6
Only available in United States

Cairo, founded on the site of ancient Babylon, is the capital of Egypt and largest city in Africa. It is also known as The Mother of Cities. Cairo pulses with the sounds of life and at the same time is the silent keeper of ancient mysteries. As one of the oldest tourist destinations in the world, blending its rich past with a vibrant present, you will find its spirit both exciting and profound. The city of a thousand minarets and the biggest Oriental bazaars is home to more than 18 million people – it is also home to many of the world’s most ancient monuments.

The Nile is the lifeblood of the city and is lined with ancient monuments and museums. You haven not experienced Cairo until you have taken a trip on the Nile. With bazaars, markets and classy shops offering the country's finest on every street corner, it's almost impossible to resist the temptation to spend a little more than you’d planned! There’s an endless assortment of Egyptian souvenirs and trinkets on offer. If you develop your levels of discernment and trust your instincts, you’ll be able to find interesting, quality goods to take home.
