A long weekend is exactly what we need to get out of Cairo and go to our beloved Sahel. Every year certain places boom and you find everyone talking about them, we don’t want you to miss out on any instagramable places or regret not going somewhere when summer is over, which is why we made a list of the five thing you shouldn’t miss this summer!


  1. Lakeyard – Hacienda Bay

The giant food court that has walls decorated with hand drawn portraits by Heytan is definitely something that you don’t want to miss out on! You definitely want a picture with a giant Audrey Hepburn and Frida Kahlo. There are thirteen murals from Walt Disney to Salt Bae, which means you will surely enjoy the paintings

  1. Breakfast at Baladina – Telal

A cheerful, fresh and fun place to have breakfast. It is great to catch up with a friend over an oriental breakfast. the food is delicious and the weather in Sahel is always great.


  1. Saber – Marina 1

Old is gold, a rice pudding with ice cream and fresh roasted nuts will bring back your childhood memories. This plate tastes like 2002, go grab yours and make everyone on your feed feel nostalgic!

  1. Trux – Amwaj

Another Instagramable place that will make your Cairo staying friends jealous! They describe themselves as a place where you will enjoy the finest variety of gourmet food while falling in love with the sounds of incredible bands and our House Dj’s and they also offer diversified services like beauty salons, and kids daycare.

  1. The Greek Village

Ever wanted to go to Greece but you don’t have the time or the cash? You can go to this Mykonos inspired village and make your friends think that you have left the country! The beautiful place is between Diplo and Sidi Abdelrahman.
