6 Days in Egypt, Is that enough?Hi All,
I am looking at a 6 full-day trip, visiting Cairo and Luxor only. Will it be enough time, or should I allocate more time?
At this rate, this is thr rough schedule:
Day 0 : Arrive at Cairo in the evening, check in hotel.
Day 1-3 (inclusive): Spend time in Cairo. Will leave in the evening to Luxor via train. Probably the 9pm one.
Day 4-6 (inclusive): Spend time in Luxor. Will leave to Cairo in the evening via train. Depart Cairo in the next day.
So do you think it will be enough? I think I will be staying in Miami Cairo Hostel (Cairo) and Nefertiti Hotel (Luxor). My interest will be religious sites, like churches and mosques. Methinks I can skip museums. I will definitely go to Giza and Islamic Cairo - do I need 1 full day each?
Please share the must-see sites.

1Asking if a certain amount of time is enough to see a specific place is always an impossible question to answer as it's so subjective. Remember, we don't know you, your travel style or anything else about you.
Cairo is one of the largest and most fascinating cities in the world. Three days may give you a brief overview off the city, but you still couldn't see it all in three years.
Three days in Luxor will allow you to see the main sights.
If you have more time I'd take it, if not then just do the best you can and enjoy your visit.
I spent nearly a day at the Pyramids of Giza and about five hours at the National Museum.

I'm young Egyptian guy , you should visit ''Mohamed Ali'' mosque in ''Salah El Din'' citadel(both of them were rulers of Egypt ) with some museums there in this citadel , Al Azhar mosque , Al ''Hussein'' mosque with its coffee shops (really nice place in ancient Islamic Egypt) , ''Amr ibn El-Ass'' mosque , El Sayda Zinnab mosque .. note all of these places are Fantastic Islamic Monuments and many Tourists visit these places and they have fun . i know all of these places closely . and please don't skip the Egyptian Museum or Pyramids.. you will regret if you didn't see them :D
