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 a sense of the local culture at Mosque of Muhammad Ali and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Khan Al-Khalili and Townhouse Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Musee de la Barque Solaire, Pyramids of Giza, &more) and Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, stop by Islamic Cairo, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Al-Azhar Mosque.
