Sorry just realised I have made a mistake in the directions.
Turn left at the Misr gas station go up the street and take the first, you will pass the American school and a chemist and dress shop on your left, almost immediatly there is a right turning our club is on that corner.. There are always policemen sitting outisde.
If you are stuck just phone us and an arabic speaker will direct the driver.

Join the BCA now for the year 2010 and we will give you free membership for the remains of this year, just bring along a copy of your passport.
We are a charitable organisation and our profits go to help the needy in Egypt.

Hey,
I'm moving to Cairo in January on my own, I am a 28 year old woman and I have no idea about where to live or how to start...
My offices may be in 90, El Hegaz Street, Heliopolis, Cairo. Would it make sense to live near here or could I live in Giza or Central Cairo??? I'm unsure of the distances.
Can't wait to meet new expats!!!

Hi there - my personal preference would be Al Rehab close to Heliopolis you can get everywhere from alrehab all services that you might ever wish for restaurants pharmacy all kinds of shops cafes are in the one secure area there is security everywhere you can go out anytime of day - this is all important for a woman - there is a large expat community - especially women - they all meet up regularly at a place called Tota ( i happen to own it) but that is not why i am telling you this - Al rehab is just really livable you can walk places - most women friends i know would not live anywhere else - cairo can be very overpowering so be careful Giza & central cairo would be a nightmare the traffic - would add hours of misery to your day every day good luck!

I live just off Hegaz Street. Heliopolis is fine to stay in. You have the British Club. There's a large section of Christians and foreigners. It's fairly wealthy but mostly Egyptian, so not that expensive. Hegaz and the offshoot streets have plenty of restaurants, clubs, gardens etc etc, plus a dirt-cheap tram system straight to the centre of Cairo (although you'll probably only need to go to pay the odd bill or see the Museum). Unless you would like to be in a mostly ex-pat community, out in the desert (I've also got a flat there which I love at weekends but it's not really 'Egypt'), I'd suggest getting a place around here.
