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.
You've now added Dr. Ragab Papyrus Institute to your itinerary. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Step Pyramid of Djoser and Mastaba of Ti. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pyramids of Dahshour and Statue of Ramesses II. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairo: Giza (Great Sphinx, Pyramids of Giza, & more) and Natural Science Museum (in Ismailia). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Zamalek (Gezira Island), take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Ibn Tulun, gain insight at Mosque of Al-Azhar, and pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St Sergius and Bacchus.

To see photos, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairo trip planner .

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Cairo can reach 39°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
