    Before I moved to Cairo I contacted some local members on InterNations. They gave me some great assistance.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Cairo

Hello to all Americans in Cairo! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Cairo? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Cairo which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Cairo is one of the busiest cities in Africa and the Arab world. The Egyptian capital is a mega city known for its closeness to the famous Giza pyramid complex, the Middle East’s oldest and largest music and film industry, the striking Cairo Opera House, and much more! With the metro system, as well as tram, ferry, and (mini) bus services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in one of Cairo's typical expat neighborhoods such as Maadi or Heliopolis, which are about an hour away from Cairo’s center.

Although Cairo has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Cairo, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
