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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Egypt Tailor Made Day Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Giza (Great Sphinx & Pyramids of Giza). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, don't miss a visit to Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay, explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, and stroll around Al-Azhar Park.

To see other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, read Cairo trip maker .

Dhaka City, Bangladesh to Cairo is an approximately 11-hour flight. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Dhaka City to Cairo due to the time zone difference.
