Insight Guide: Egyptian Map
This laminated and colorful map is sold as an adjunct
to the Insight Guides, and has the same photographic
content and bright, lively feel as the books do. It's
a good reference for the major site (Saqqara, Giza,
and Memphis are detailed nicely), but it is not meant
as a street map in any sense of the word.
Actually, in retrospect, best map of Cairo that we
found was in the Semiramis hotel, and came out of a local magazine.
If you are looking for a general idea where the major
cities are, and what things there are to see in them
so you can plan a general scope of your travel, then
this is a good choice. It's not a cheap map, but it's
nigh-on indestructible and you can write on it with
dry-erase markers to track your progress.
The new spate of laminated or plastic-y maps have been a great help to me, as I routinely mark up maps during our trips with our routes, highlights, and other points of interest.
