Cairo

— 11 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.
Spend the 29th (Tue) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, contemplate the long history of Mosque of Muhammad Ali, and wander the streets of Islamic Cairo.

To find reviews, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, read Cairo online travel route planner.

Amritsar, India to Cairo is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3.5 hours traveling from Amritsar to Cairo. Traveling from Amritsar in December, plan for a bit warmer nights in Cairo, with lows around 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 6th (Wed) to allow time for the car ride to Alexandria.

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.
