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.
Get a sense of the local culture at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids. Step out of the city life by going to Safaris and Cairo Horse Riding School. Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's much more to do: shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, stop by Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch, contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, and don't miss a visit to Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay.

To see other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairo trip tool .

You can fly from Luxor to Cairo in 3 hours. Other options are to drive; or take a bus. Expect a bit cooler weather when traveling from Luxor in December: highs in Cairo hover around 24°C, while lows dip to 14°C. On the 22nd (Sun), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
