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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids and Giza Plateau. Head to Khan Al-Khalili and Fair Trade Egyptfor some retail therapy. Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Giza (Meidum Pyramid, Pyramids of Giza, & more), Imhotep Museum (in Saqqara) and Al Fayyum (Pyramids of El Fayoum, Temple of Dionysias (Temple of Stones), & more). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, wander the streets of Zamalek (Gezira Island), explore the activities along Nile River, and see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum.

To find maps, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairo trip planner .

In May in Cairo, expect temperatures between 38°C during the day and 24°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
