A new restaurant overlooking the 9 pyramids has opened!

Speaking of the Giza Pyramid, the three major pyramids of Khufu, Kuffler, and Menkaurer are famous, but in fact, there are three "satellite pyramids" built alongside the Khufu pyramid and the Menkaurer pyramid, which are combined with the three major pyramids. There is a special place where you can see a total of 9 pyramids.

A restaurant has opened at that superb view point!
Its name is "9 Pyramids Lounge".
There are two types, a table seat and a Bedouin style tatami room. It's completely outdoors, so it can be a bit harsh during midsummer days, but you can enjoy your meal while gazing at the nine pyramids!

Although it is located in the desert, it also has a clean toilet.
Alcohol will also be available after January 2021.

Baron Palace in Cairo has been open to the public for the first time since June 30!
Oriental architecture reminiscent of India or Angkor Wat even though it is Egypt! ?
The Heliopolis area, where the Baron Palace is located, was itself developed by the Belgian businessman Edward Enpain, and was built as his own residence.
At that time, it seemed to be the design because oriental architecture was popular in Europe under the influence of the Paris Expo.
Admission Fee 100 adult Egyptian pounds, £50 extra on rooftop open from 9am to 6pm.
It is close to Cairo Airport and recommended for sightseeing during transit times!
