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.
Appreciate the collections at The Coptic Museum and Museum of Islamic Arts. Take a break from the city and head to Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Adrenaline & Extreme Tours. Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Mit Rahina Museum (in Al Badrashin), Pyramids of Dahshour (in Giza) and Meidum Pyramid (in El Wasta). There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Mastaba of Ti, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, appreciate the history behind Statue of Ramses II, and take an in-depth tour of Manial Palace Museum.

To find more things to do, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Cairo trip planner.

If you are flying in from Tanzania, the closest major aiport is Cairo International Airport. In September, daytime highs in Cairo are 39°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
