What do I need to know about living in Alexandria?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Alexandria, they said:

"Before retiring in Alexandria, expats should be aware of the local culture and customs. It is important to research the cost of living in Alexandria, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. Expats should also be aware of the security situation in the city, and take necessary precautions to ensure their safety. Additionally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, as English is not widely spoken in Alexandria. Finally, expats should be aware of the visa and residency requirements for living in Egypt," commented one expat who made the move to Alexandria.

"Be very prepared not let the backward ways and slowness and unorganized ways get to you. Relax and take it for what this country is great for which is cultural, beauty, great food and fun in the sun," remarked one expat living in Alexandria, Egypt.
