We’re looking for Cairo loving locals!

One of the cities we’re hoping to expand to soon is Cairo, home the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx. Also known as the City of a Thousand Minarets, it’s a city of opposites, with ancient landmarks, modern skyscrapers, intricate mosques, and a lot of traffic.

Many who visit Cairo will stick to the top tourist attractions, of which Cairo actually has quite many.

They’d go see the Pyramids and the Sphinx, explore the stalls at the Khan El-Khalili Market and marvel at the Islamic architecture, such as the Muhammed Ali and Al-Azhar Mosques. They’ll probably try some local dishes like koshary, ful mudamas, and mahshi.
