We're always on the hunt for top travel hacks, anything that puts us one step ahead of the crowds or allows for an awesome experience. So, when we came across this incredible hack for seeing the best view of the Pyramids of Giza, we thought, I'll bite.

It would seem, in a bizarre twist of fate, one of the greatest viewpoints looking out onto this Wonder of the Ancient World can be a KFC?

  • Egypt
  • Giza


Over 4,500 years old, the Pyramids of Giza are one of the seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the finest examples of classical antiquity you'll find anywhere on this planet.

So you'd be mistaken for thinking that you'd have to trek for miles on camelback to the middle of the desert to see these remarkable constructions: wrong.

Tik Tok star and travel blogger Kimmie Connor traveled to the Pyramids and found that you can find a jaw-dropping view of the pyramids from the rooftop dining area of a nearby KFC and Pizza Hut.

Yes, you read that right. A KFC offers views of the Pyramids of Giza. Surrounding the pyramids, there are bars, restaurants, and local neighborhoods residences of the city of Giza.

So, rather than slogging it across the desert for days with a procession of camels carrying food and water, it would seem all you need to do is climb to the fourth-floor rooftop dining area of a KFC to get panoramic views of the pyramids.

Kimmie even notes that while she was on the rooftop, there was actually no one else there and that for the cost of a three pieces combo, you'd save a whole heap of cash on taxis, camels, or expensive paid viewpoints.
