TEFL Cairo | TEFL Egypt

The site of Egypt’s present day capital, Cairo, has a long history as the location of this ancient country’s historic capital cities and has witnessed many different historical periods throughout its lifetime. Remnants of Egypt’s past can be seen throughout Cairo in the large number of ancient monuments found all over the city and walking the streets can feel like walking through time. Visitors can witness first-hand the Pharaonic, Greek, Roman, Coptic and Islamic lives played out over millennia in this world-famous city. Today, Cairo remains a thriving, cosmopolitan city attracting visitors from all over the world and is one of the most exciting places to earn a TEFL qualification.

Not only is Cairo home to these splendid monuments of its ancient past, it is also home to more modern attractions including shopping malls, amusement parks, opera houses, theatres and more.

As a first-class tourist destination, the city has a wide selection of hotels and other accommodation available.

Cairo’s fascinating history can also be experienced in the more than fifty museums the city and its surrounds have to offer. These museums house artifacts from thousands of years of the country’s past. The Tahir Museum is where the mummy of Ramesses II, the most powerful Pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty, who reigned between 1279 and 1213 BC. No visit to Egypt would be complete without paying a visit to the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza, which have stood for thousands of years. To get an alternative view of Cairo, a dinner cruise along the Nile is a great way to spend a couple of hours soaking up the sights and enjoying a great meal. You can also escape the hustle and bustle of the city in the nature reserves and protected areas, which offer some quiet, cozy places to relax and unwind.
