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 out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's still lots to do: take an exotic tour of a safari tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, and shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili.
