      I am looking for somewhere quieter, not full of nightclubs etc, with little bit of tradition. Not too small but equally not too large. Preferably not full of children either. Good beach on site and some snorkelling of course. Was told about Dahab, does this fit what i'm looking for?

    • Advice on housing choice - transportation

      Cairo Jan 1, 2015 at 2:56 AM

      Hi - I am looking for budget housing for a couple of months in Cairo so my choices are very limited. I primarily want to experience the cultural life, concerts at the Opera House, Arab Music Institute, and a folk center downtown, with incursions into "Islamic" Cairo (of course all of Egypt is Islamic!) . So I need to be fairly central. (I am a woman alone by the way but I feel ok about that) - I am waiting for a possibility in Zamalek, but if that does not work out, I have an option in Heliopolis and quite possibly in upper Moqattam. In terms of travel time and options and general transportation struggle, which would a Cairo-savvy person recommend? I will be returning home fairly late from concerts. Thanks!

      Egypt Dec 22, 2014 at 9:38 AM

      Hi, has anyone been there lately? I am told it is beautiful - of course everyone has their own perceptions of places - but considered dangerous. The same person told that one day when their armed escort was late, she got impatient to go out, and the hotel made her sign a disclaimer! I didnt ask when that happened, though. I was thinking of stopping over there on the way back up to Cairo from Luxor, would break the journey and I could see something new. I wonder if it is worth the effort (luggage, taxi, hotel) - it is hard to find out much about it. Opinions are personal but I would like to have yours! And, of course, general security and police questions, is it a hassle, etc? Thanks!
