Cairo

More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
On the 21st (Sat), see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, and then explore the activities along Nile River. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the galleries of Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre and then visit Islamic Cairo.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairo trip itinerary planner.

Bhopal, India to Cairo is an approximately 13- hour flight. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time (IST) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET) is minus 3.5 hours. Traveling from Bhopal in March, you will find days in Cairo are a bit cooler (29°C), and nights are about the same (17°C). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) early enough to travel to Marsa Alam.

Hurghada

Originally a small fishing town on the Red Sea coast, Hurghada developed into Egypt's premier beach destination thanks to its year-round sunny weather and world-class dive sites.
On the 24th (Tue), zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, then glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and then look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas.

Plan my Hurghada trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can drive from Marsa Alam to Hurghada in 4 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or take a bus. In March in Hurghada, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 19°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Sharm El Sheikh.
