Upon arrival, the choreographed chaos here hits you like a ton of bricks. It doesn't take long, however, to acclimatize to Cairo's wall of noise, snarl of traffic, cry of hawkers and blanket of smog, and get drawn into the hypnotizing charm of this pulsating metropolis. Head out west to Giza's famed pyramids and the time warp sets you back 4000 years.

These huge tombs built by thousands of workers are truly incredible with their awesome geometry and huge size. Also on the Giza plateau is the great Sphinx with the body of a lion and the head of a King – this amazing sandstone monument dates back to 2500 BC and is carved out of a single seam of stone.
