Cairo
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.
Start off your visit on the 15th (Sun): contemplate the long history of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, then explore the activities along Nile River, and then take an exotic tour of a safari tour. On the 16th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, then see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, and then step off the mainland to explore Zamalek (Gezira Island).
