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

"New Cairo City is still in its developmental stage. Since I've been here (the first one on my block; not even a paved street) slowly stores are being added and public transportation. I would like to know if there are other Americans in this area, and what they are doing. I'm interested in fitness and seeing things the ordinary tourists do not see. Also bargain hunting for household items," remarked another expat who made the move to New Cairo City, 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," explained one expat living in Egypt.
