Snapshots are mini town/city guides for smaller places or cities I have only experienced briefly. Here’s a little snapshot of Cairo.
What are one’s first impressions of Cairo?
Not the romantic pearl of Arabia I envisioned. The place is a shit-hole. The locals seem friendly, but that’s only because they want to scam you. Egyptian men are the among the worst breed of human I’ve ever encountered. There is the odd gentlemen, but I found 90% are of the scummier variety. If the guys don’t piss you off, the heat, filth and lack of nightlife will. At least it’s easy to get high in Cairo.
What are the women like?
There’s no doubt that Cairo’s saving grace is in the eyes of the local temptresses. The majority of Egyptian women are in hijabs and carry a little weight (Egyptian guys love the chubb). But when they’re cute, there’s really cute. Egypt remains a conservative Muslim country and fellow travellers reckon hooking up with a local is more likely in Tehran, Iran; that’s saying something. According to Reuters, a survey conducted in 2005 found 95% of Egyptian women have undergone some form of female circumcision, so expect a decreased libido. However, I’m convinced the chicks can be pulled, I got a lot of great responses from smiling and giving a flirty wave. The average women marries at 24 – I see a window! This isn’t Saudi, it can be done. If I were going to Egypt again I’d get my ass online and pick up that way.

Where should I go at night-time?
For a population of nearly 8 million people, the nightlife in Cairo is desperate. Zamalek is your best bet, with a few bars conducive for game. It’s relatively upmarket, but wealthier girls who tend to be a little more liberal drink here, otherwise you’re restricted to nightclubs in the major hotels.
If you’re looking for a good time in Egypt hit somewhere like Hurghada on the red sea, it’s way more fun. The place is a major holiday destination for sexy Eastern European & Russian chicks.
Any other recommendations?
I never EVER recommend organised tours, but in truth I reckon Egypt is best experienced in this way.
Oh yeah and you should go see those pointy things in the dessert, the what-cha-ma-call-its - pyramids! Apparently giant Lego blocks constitute some sort of ancient wonder. Read my article – How to get a private pyramid tour!
The Bottom Line
See the pyramids and get the fuck out of Cairo.
