"Expats in Cairo often find the local culture to be quite different from what they are used to. Many find the language barrier to be a challenge, as Arabic is the primary language spoken in the city. Additionally, the city's traffic and pollution can be overwhelming for those who are not used to it. Expats may also find the conservative dress code and social norms to be difficult to adjust to. Finally, the bureaucracy and paperwork associated with living in Cairo can be a source of frustration for expats," wrote a member who made the move to Cairo, Egypt.
