Enjoy this bridge in early morning or late night, you can across Cairo easily without any traffic jam, also it is good to watch Nile River, sunrise and sunset too. Wedding couples can take shoots for memories as well.

Apart from the engineering bit 6th October bridge is a very nice place to have a romantic walk in the evening. There are still people fishing fro the bridge at night with their custom made rods as well as home made ones.

It joins most of Cairo together trying to make shortcuts to places, yet it's crowded. A shortcut in which you spend a lot of time to reach your destination.

I wonder how come this is an attraction. It is a long bridge (around 13 kms) that most people drive on daily to go to work. There is a portion that passes over the Nile. Many people stand up there watching the Nile. Nice view...More

What can you say about a bridge? The traffic is busy, impatient and noisy and not to be tackled during rush hour!!!
