Hiiii and welcome to Egypt, great Choice.

If you are staying in cairo there are some places that are a "must See!"

you will definatly go to the pyramids and ride a felluca in the Nile...
you will have to go to Khan el Khalily where you will find great things to buy, Particularly good buys are spices, perfumes, gold, silver, carpets, brass and copperware, leatherwork, glass, ceramics and mashrabiya, traditional egyptian clothes, home accessories, egyptian restaurants....AND Belly Dancing Costumes :cool: sooo great
there is also "Kerdassa Area" at the pyramids where you will find traditional egyptian hand made "dishdasha or dara'a and kleem (egyptian carpets)....
Also "Saladin Citidal" -kal3et sala7 el din wher you will see great egyptian antiques from the tiem of "moahmed Ali"
there is also The Egyptian Museum, It has 107 halls. At the ground floor there are the huge statues. The upper floor houses small statues, jewels, Tutankhamon treasures and the mummies.
there is alos floating restaurants that cruises the nile while havvign diner or supper like "nile pharoes" and "nile maxime" or statc floating restaurants like "Nile City" or "Blue Nile" in El Zamalek.
aaa, you will have to eat at "kababgy el alfy" a restuarant in El-Alfi St., Downtown.. since 1901 that offers grilled food....and above all, No alcohol served.


As for the Malls you will love first mall (in fron of the Zoo, every friday they have a Grand Day for families), city stars mall (in nasr City) is a new huge mall with great shops, cinemas, food, arcades area, it was built by "el sheikh el sharbatly co." , and lots of other great malls....
You can spend the day at "safaris club" in Alex-Cairo dessert road, a great place for the whoel family...
you can have dinner by the nile in "seqoia retaurant" in abo el fed st. el zamalek, great food, great white furniture, sun, nile....we go there almost every weekend!

Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada are also great cities, the sea is unbelievable but in August it's going to be soooo hot....
you can go to alexandria for 3 days or 4 maximum, the best hotels are hilton plaza, plaestine hotel, and el haramlek....but as for the family hilton palza will be the best choice as the pool, mall, and restaurants are all in the hotel...

i can not think of more places but definatly there is....:))

the problem that you will face here is prices, if they found out that you are a tourist they will charge you triple the price (of course there are places with fixed prices) but you will have to Negotiate a lot and never give up :)

i think the following websites can be of help:
www.yallabina.com
www.cairodining.com
www.touregypt.net
www.intoegypt.com
www.lepacha.com

Good luck and enjoy your stay, and if you need more information just ask again.....

well swiming pools are in every 5 stars hotel but the best one is in Heliopolis Sheraton Hotel because there is one for the adults and one for the children and parents...or Grand Hayatt or the four seasons hotel....aslo your kids will have much fun in city stars Mall because there's "magic galaxy" for kids under 10 years with all kinds of games and arcades and also u can leave them there and go shopping and come back for them later.....but if your looking for fun on the beach you will have to travel to shram el sheikh or El Gouna (http://go.3roos.com/VwqOSiGSrOH) where the animation team will be with them all day on the beach playing games and at night they will be sooo tierd and will sleep so YOU can have fun :)
i will try to ask my friends and tell you insha2allah...
