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, & more). There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, enjoy breathtaking views from Cairo Tower, get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Al-Azhar Park.

For photos, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, read our Cairo day trip planning app .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In May, daytime highs in Cairo are 38°C, while nighttime lows are 23°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
