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.

Spend the 8th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 9th (Tue) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. The adventure continues: explore the activities along Nile River, get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, and see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum.
