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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids and Coptic Cairo. Get some historical perspective at Step Pyramid of Djoser and Mosque of Muhammad Ali. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay, and explore the activities along Nile River.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Cairo travel itinerary planner.

Seoul, South Korea to Cairo is an approximately 18- hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of train, bus, and flight. You'll gain 7 hours traveling from Seoul to Cairo due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Seoul in 9월, plan for much warmer days and about the same nights in Cairo: temperatures range from 39°C by day to 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel to Hurghada.
