Cairo, Egypt

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay, look for gifts at Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch, and contemplate the long history of Mosque of Muhammad Ali.

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

New Delhi, India to Cairo is an approximately 11-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time is minus 3.5 hours. Expect slightly colder weather when traveling from New Delhi in December: highs in Cairo hover around 24°C, while lows dip to 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Hurghada.
