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.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Fri): see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, then explore the activities along Nile River, and then get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: view the masterpieces at Oum El Dounia Gallery, then explore the ancient world of Pyramids of Giza, then steep yourself in history at Great Sphinx, and finally stop by Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch.

For reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Cairo vacation planner.
