Restaurant opens near Giza Pyramids
Egypt launched its first tourist restaurant at the Giza Pyramids plateau late on Oct 20.
Dubbed "9 Pyramids Lounge," the restaurant covers an area of 1,341 square meters and overlooks the pyramids. "One of the problems always faced is people say there are no special services for tourists, that there is no cafeteria, no restaurant, nothing that can be offered to visitors," said Mostafa Waziri, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.
There will also be a fleet of new environmentally friendly buses to guide tourists around the plateau. The new facilities can all be easily taken apart and reassembled so as to protect the antiquities, and Waziri said the open-air restaurant offered "a panorama view that cannot be matched anywhere in the world".
