Cairo

— 6 nights

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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes North Pyramid (Piramide Roja), Mosque of Muhammad Ali, Memphis and Sakkara, and other attractions you added. Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Saqqara (Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids & Mastaba of Ptah-Hotep and Akhti-Hotep).

Plan my Cairo trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Cairo is an approximately 16-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Jakarta to Cairo due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Jakarta in November: high temperatures in Cairo hover around 29°C and lows are around 19°C. On the 21st (Tue), you're off to Luxor.

Gift of the Nile
The land of pharaohs, pyramids, sphinxes, and papyrus, Egypt needs little by way of introduction. Visitors find more than a textbook readout of ancient history when visiting the country--the power, scale, art, and mysticism of its centuries-old culture bleed out from each landmark attraction and seep into the everyday life. Bustling markets, the slow-flowing Nile, the vast desert, and inspiring archeological sites often sit right alongside palaces of great excess and historical importance. All ensure you have plenty to see and do during your vacation in Egypt. In the wake of the Arab Spring in 2011, travel to certain areas where conflict and terrorism are deemed likely remains inadvisable for foreign visitors.
