Cairo — 3 nights

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.

There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, stop by Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch, and stroll around Al-Azhar Park.
