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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Giza (Great Sphinx & Pyramids of Giza). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, and examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Cairo tour planner.

Traveling by flight from Aswan to Cairo takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. Traveling from Aswan in April, expect Cairo to be little chillier, temps between 34°C and 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 16th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
