4- Climb the Cairo Tower

via Facebook

The Cairo Tower is a 187-metre concrete monolith that stands alone and is perhaps as recognisable a symbol of Egypt as the Pyramids! Naoum Shebib, the Egyptian architect behind the sculpture, designed it with an open-latticed framework meant to imitate the lotus plant, the national flower of Egypt. However, keep in mind that you will have to pay a fee if you want to snap pictures from the highest point of the tower.

5- Grab a Beer at Rooftop Zamalek
