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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Al Fayyum (Hawara Pyramid, Temple of Dionysias (Temple of Stones), & more), Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more) and Saqqara (Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep's Mastaba, Step Pyramid of Djoser, & more). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, walk around Al-Azhar Park, and get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili.

To see maps and more tourist information, read Cairo trip planner .

In September in Cairo, expect temperatures between 39°C during the day and 28°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Thu) so you can travel back home.
