Few places in the world boast such a long history and such a rich multiethnic culture as Jerusalem, a city sacred to Jews, Muslims, and Christians.
Jerusalem is known for historic sites, museums, parks, shopping, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get engrossed in the history at Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, steep yourself in history at Garden of Gethsemane, examine the collection at Israel Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Dome of the Rock.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Jerusalem online trip maker .

Singapore, Singapore to Jerusalem is an approximately 18.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Singapore to Jerusalem due to the time zone difference.

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohamed Ali Mosque, admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), and examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum.
