For someone moving to Giza, I highly recommend Zamalek neighborhood for cultural events and social activities. It hosts the best coffee shops and restaurants for every taste and food preference.

He should know traffic is very high, products are expensive, salaries are low. He should know there is a lot of scammers, tipping is highly expected, security is poor, summer is sweltering hot, dresses are conservative, prepare for high taxes, drones are forbidden, heavy military presence, and it’s normally easy to get a visa on arrival.

The Pyramids of Giza and the amazing desert where they lie. the Great pyramid is the one of the seven wonders of the world and the only withstanding one. Riding a camel or a horse is the most popular activity to do there. Giza zoo, the oldest park in the area, is also a marvelous place.

Giza is full of services; everyone is friendly and they will help you with anything. However, there is only one problem; street cats and dogs are wild and they attack you sometimes. Also, they keep making noises at night but that should be taken care of in no time. The city is amazing.

This city has all of the needed services; starting from dry cleaning to grocery stores. However, most neighborhoods are not that friendly; they sometimes pick up unnecessary fights just for fun. Also, there is a sporting club and it is really good, it has a swimming pool, a Tennis and Football playground.

Giza is an amazing city, we have a lot of places you can visit as the pyramids, the castle and Many gardens. It’ very crowded city. it has many comfortable hotels where you can stay. Giza is near to Cairo. In Giza, there is Cairo university which is one of the most important universities in the world.

Weather is very hot these days but there are many beaches which are very amazing. It’s very crowded, know about hotels. There are very beautiful places as pyramides, castle and others. Giza is one of the most famous cities in Egypt.

Giza is very crowded, yet a city that perfectly suits someone who enjoys nightlife. Stores never close before 12 AM. Nightclubs, malls and restaurants are open until after midnight. The weather is really hot in summer, yet pretty warm in winter. There are so many museums, monuments and sightseeing places.
