Cairo is not a place to visit unless you are willing to get sick, air pollution is very bad.

spending a day in Cairo is the same as smoking half a pack of cigarettes on a good day, (WHO)

I live in Egypt, and I do not have to say much; the air is very polluted here. It's unbearable and it's only getting worse neither the government nor the people are doing a thing. If you can; get the hell out of there and if you're thinking about visiting then don't. It's gonna be the worst experience of your life.
