Cairo

City of a Thousand Minarets

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 out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx) and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, walk around Al-Azhar Park, and take in the exciting artwork at Oum El Dounia Gallery.

To find photos, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Cairo online journey planner.

Los Angeles, USA to Cairo is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 10 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Cairo. In February in Cairo, expect temperatures between 71°F during the day and 53°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Dahab.
