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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, and walk around Al-Azhar Park.

For maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairo trip builder app .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
