What should I keep in mind when visiting Cairo?

Cairo is the capital of Egypt and it has population around 20 millions. So keep in mind:

  • You might get stucked in traffic in some places.
  • Don't drink from the tap. It's highly chlorinated. (I drink from the tap water everyday but my body is used to it)
  • Always carry water bottles to keep you hydrated. ( temperatures can be up to 40C in summer)
  • Keep in mind that the metro can be crowded at peak hours. (especially the first line)
  • Always check prices carefully and bargain with everyone!
  • Use Uber or Careem for transportation. (They are ways better than Taxis)
  • It's okay to try local food. You will love it! but not in very cheap restaurants as they aren't so clean.
  • keep in mind to take pictures to yourself kissing the Sphinx.
  • People love toursits and you will notice that every moment. But keep in mind to be friendly with them.
  • It's expected that you will hear the calls for prayers 5 times a day.

I'm Egyptian and I've been living here since the day I was born. I love Cairo and I hope you will love it as well. Enjoy your trip!


There is a lot of traffic so plan accordingly.

Who believes in paranormal phenomena?
