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.
Get outdoors at Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Valley of the Whales (Wadi Al-Hitan). Get some cultural insight at Islamic Cairo and Pyramids of Giza. There's lots more to do: shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), and see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum.

For traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the Cairo itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 23°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
