Tahrir Square has major importance in the politics of modern Egypt. Half a kilometre away from the Egyptian Museum, cruises for evening dinner and other government offices. It has one of the busiest bus stop offering bus services to all the major sites in the city and country. Travellers can find numerous restaurant and travel agents and tour offices in its vicinity. It always has heavy traffic plan accordingly.
