Neighborhoods

This island in the middle of the Nile is perfect for strolls, shopping, and nightlife- really safe neighborhood that is easy to get around for expats and tourists. It has the best restaurants in town and a number of attractions, including the Opera House and the Modern Art Museum.

Health & Wellness

This place is worth the trek, though my Uber drivers can never find it on a map, so plan on hailing a taxi home. They have yoga classes and spa offerings and a cafe and play area for children. They also have a weekly market on Fridays. Check them out!

Sightseeing

No one visits Egypt for its Modern Art Museum, but it's a hidden gem. Very nice Museum without any crowds

Cafes & Small bites

They have a location in Zamalek as well. I live for their Espresso-banana blend smoothie; their mango chia seed pudding, and their chicken and mushroom sandwich, but honestly have not ever had a bad dish here.

Every restaurant and grocery store delivers

Talabat is a great app to order delivery from restaurants; but you can also order over the phone. If you prefer to go to the grocery store, you can always ask for someone to deliver the bags.
