Adventure in Egypt — Day 2–

Adventure in Egypt — Day 2–

We headed out exploring looking for breakfast option near the hotel. Found a small stall selling burger and fried chicken in hotdog bun which taste amazing! On his last bite, Justin said.. huh? no more already?

Couple of shop next door, we got our freshly squeezed orange juice.

Around 12pm , we headed to Coptic Museum via Uber. Uber is pretty reliable in Egypt and you can pay using cash or credit card. Prices is really cheap compared to Dubai and it is fixed price. Considering the traffic in Egypt, having a fixed price system is really good for tourist. We paid EGP30-50 for a 10-20 mins trip.

There are security check before we enter the area. There are many churches at the same area and some shops selling souvenir and food. We had our lunch at Old Cairo Restaurant and Cafe. Their food is good and their lentil soup is amazing, MUST TRY! Juices are fresh as well and their prices are reasonable.

Amazing lentil soup!

We then headed to the Coptic Museum (entrance fees are EGP 100 for adults and EGP 50 for kids) where many information on Egypt’s early Christian period are displayed. The coptic art collection is vast too. Great for an artsy afternoon.

There are many churches in the area along the remains of Babylon’s fortress. We explore the Hanging Church and Ben Ezra Synagogue which is a Jewish church.

The Hanging Church which I don’t see it hanging .. haha!

Then head back to hotel for a short nap before heading to SeaGull Restaurant for dinner with a friend.
