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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan.

To see reviews, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read Cairo travel planning app .

Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from George Town in November; daily highs in Cairo reach 29°C and lows reach 19°C.
