Also known as ‘The Mother of the World’, it’s easy to see why as you experience the energy and vibrancy of the city of Cairo. With a population of over 22 million, it’s a city that never sleeps. The hustle and bustle of the city is infectious and you’ll find the mix of modernity with traditional Islamic architecture fascinating to see. The marketplaces and bazaars give you a chance to immerse yourself in the local customs, try out Egyptian cuisine and see the vast size of Cairo.

Unclean toilets and facilities in Cairo are not uncommon and have even been reported in luxury all-inclusive hotels. Unfortunately, these unsanitary conditions can cause typhoid or diarrhoea.

Food preparation areas in hotel restaurants have also been found to be unhygienic, which can lead to contaminated food and water and ultimately to illness.

All-inclusive resorts often also have buffet style restaurants. This can mean that cooked food is not stored at the correct temperature; it may be kept in unclean conditions and may be exposed to cross-contamination.
