Cairo is a generally cheap city to visit, but if you are on a super-tight budget, you’re still going to want to watch those pennies. This list of the top 10 budget activities in Cairo will help you plan a great trip, but without breaking the bank. Included in the top 10 budget activities for Cairo are some cheap eats, drinks and entertainment, free markets and religious sights, and – of course – the Pyramids.
