Cairo, Egypt, is where travelers from around the globe come to see some of the few remaining wonders of the world at the Giza Necropolis pyramids, but the city has a variety of other attractions like the Al-Azhar Park and the Khan el-Khalili souk. You can fly out of the Doha International Airport (DOH) by taking Mesaieed or Salwa Road. When you fly from Doha to Cairo, you can expect a direct flight to be approximately six hours.
The Giza Necropolis is one of the most famous attractions in Cairo, and it s where you ll find the iconic Great Sphinx of Giza. You ll be able to take tours of the pyramids as well as to the sphinx, where you ll learn about ancient pharaohs as well as wars that took place in the area. Al-Azhar Park is a beautiful area to spend the day, and it s been listed as one of the top public spaces to visit in the world. You ll see 12th-century architecture, as well as monuments in the fashion of traditional Cairene architecture.
Although Cairo is known for its summers reaching temperatures of nearly 100 degrees, the winter months range between 45 to 65 degrees. During the month of April, the city celebrates the first day of spring at the annual Shem al Nessim event, which takes place the first Monday after Coptic Easter.
