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.
Visiting Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Valley of the Whales (Wadi Al-Hitan) will get you outdoors. For shopping fun, head to Khan Al-Khalili or Han El Halili. Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Old City (Coptic Cairo), examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, enjoy breathtaking views from Cairo Tower, and explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids.

To find reviews, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, read Cairo vacation builder.

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in February, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
