When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...

"In Egypt, Family is number one but going for coffee is right up there as well. Going to the mall (Carfor) seems to be a big deal here," said another expat in Alexandria, Egypt.

"Life for expats and digital nomads in Egypt can be both exciting and challenging. The country offers a unique cultural experience, with its ancient monuments, vibrant cities, and stunning landscapes. Expats and digital nomads can find a wide range of activities to explore, from exploring the pyramids and ancient temples to taking a cruise down the Nile. The cost of living is relatively low, making it an attractive destination for those looking to stretch their budget. However, the language barrier and cultural differences can be a challenge for some. Additionally, the political situation in Egypt can be unpredictable, so it is important to stay informed and take necessary precautions," wrote a member who made the move to Egypt.
