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 Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), explore the activities along Nile River, and shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Cairo tour planner .

Khartoum, Sudan to Cairo is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also drive. In May, Cairo is little chillier than Khartoum - with highs of 38°C and lows of 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) to allow time to drive to 6th of October City.
