Cairo, Egypt

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.

And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili.

For reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Cairo day trip planner.
