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: Saqqara (Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep's Mastaba, Step Pyramid of Djoser, & more), Al Fayyum (The Pyramid of Sneferu, Lahun Pyramid, & more) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, and hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairo itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Kenya, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Cairo can reach 41°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
