“Not what I anticipated: My Arrival in Cairo, Egypt” ūüá™ūüᨠ– Video

My Arrival to Cairo, Egypt was not what I expected! After putting off my trip to Egypt for years due to negative online content about the country, I finally decided to visit for myself. In this video, I share my first impressions of the city and the visa on arrival process in Egypt. I also take you to the Novotel 6th of October where I stayed during my time in Cairo.

Upon arriving in Egypt, I was blown away by the beauty outside the plane window as we landed in Cairo. I decided to vlog my experience upon arrival to debunk the myths of difficulty entering the country often portrayed online. Despite the warnings I had received, the immigration process was actually very smooth and easy.

I stayed in the Novotel 6th of October, as recommended by a hotel representative, and found the area to be a perfect choice for my stay. I also had the opportunity to explore different areas of the city during my visit.

I also share my frustrations about not being able to get a SIM card in the airport due to the lack of service providers supporting eSIMs. This made it difficult for me to connect to the internet and contact my Uber driver, adding an unexpected challenge to my arrival.

Overall, my first impressions of Cairo were positive and I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. Egypt is a beautiful country and this visit was an eye-opening and enjoyable experience. Join me in this video as I share my journey to Cairo and debunk the negative stereotypes often portrayed online.

Salam alikum welcome to Cairo baby yeah a lot of¬† construction going on you can tell that there’s a¬†¬† lot of developments um happening and I love these¬† Vans too these Vans are awesome look they’re so¬†¬† small this here is the swimming pool relaxing¬† area there’s all kinds of beach chairs places¬†¬†

To hang out what’s up everybody welcome back to a¬† brand new video now right now I actually just got¬†¬† off of my flight from sprf for Germany to Cairo¬† it was about 4 hours and to be honest it felt a¬†¬†

Bit brutal because I didn’t get much sleep last¬† night um because of the jet lag but I’m excited¬†¬† to be here now um as we were arriving I was¬† blown away by the views outside of the window¬†¬†

Of the plane I mean everything was brown deserts¬† I could see the NY river outside of my window it¬†¬† was beautiful so I’m super excited to be here¬† now right now I’m actually filming the intro¬†¬†

To my video because this here is my well my first  impressions of Egypt now a lot of people told me   when I got here to not Vlog in the airport to  not make the video but I want to go ahead and  

Show you guys if entering is as difficult as¬† people have made it out to be I mean there’s¬†¬† a million videos on the internet um from you know¬† all kinds of other travel vloggers telling people¬†¬†

Not to come here with cameras but let’s see if¬† anything has changed right now in 2024 now this¬†¬† airboard is super beautiful they got all kinds¬† of different um lounges I’ve noticed they also¬†¬† have a lot of art pieces around the walls it is¬† beautiful this is my first time here I’ve never¬†¬†

Even stopped here on a layover of course you got  the Arabic already because that is the official   language here in Egypt Arabic and in English is  the second spoken language baggage claim exit   connecting flights toilets now I did have to fill  out an immigr ation card on the plane but it was  

All very basic information and I’m sure we’ll¬† have to put that in uh right now when we make¬†¬† it to immigration now my hotel actually reached¬† out this morning to see if I had Transportation¬†¬† or scheduled any transportation to get me to¬† the hotel I’m staying at the no hotel in the¬†¬†

6th of October neighborhood so not in downtown¬† Cairo I will be going there later on this week¬†¬† however I wanted to um check out different areas¬† of the city so I’m staying at the nov hotel right¬†¬†

Now and I was actually told by uh the lady that¬† contacted me that we can actually reach there by¬†¬† Uber so we’ll jump onto an Uber and hopefully I¬† can grab a SIM card here in the airport as well¬†¬†

Because I got no service all right I’ll talk to¬† you guys after immigration now so this here is¬†¬† the line for the bank entry Visa I mean it’s¬† still pretty long line and then this year is¬†¬†

The line to actually enter through immigration¬† man what a what a long day we’re about to have¬†¬† in here this actually reminds me of when I¬† arrived in Tunisia a few months ago and this¬†¬†

Took hours hopefully it’s not a 3-hour um yeah¬† line okay so here is the EV Visa stamp this is a¬†¬† little ticket you get and you actually have to¬† pay $30 it has to be in US dollars to receive

This made it through immigration it was extremely¬† easy I got stamped up and now I’m at the baggage¬†¬† car so hopefully my bags show up and um it’s¬† not like when we were in Sri Lanka a few weeks¬†¬†

Ago where my brother’s bag didn’t show up and¬† was stuck in grease so hopefully that makes it¬†¬† I always get a little bit nervous when I got¬† long layovers and I had that 24-hour one but¬†¬† yeah everything went um incredibly smooth¬† I didn’t get asked to open up my bags or¬†¬†

Anything now I did get asked as soon as I walked¬† through security one of the immigration officers¬†¬† was like what’s up man where you from the US Oh¬† California you didn’t bring no weed with you bro¬†¬†

What about any um stuff for your nose and I was¬† like bro obviously I didn’t so um that was really¬†¬† easy simple straightforward I mean happens pretty¬† much everywhere else in the world and now we’re in¬†¬†

Cairo and I see my bag so that’s good news all¬† right let’s grab the bag we’ll grab a SIM card¬†¬† there’s some SIM card stations here and then um¬† time to hop into an Uber and make our way to the¬†¬†

Hotel here it is oh I didn’t pack anything in¬† here it’s pretty much empty okay well I think¬†¬† I’m uh pretty screwed right now at the moment¬† so no telephone providers here Voda phone they¬†¬†

Got Orange right behind me none of them do eims I¬† guess eims are not allowed in Egypt so if you’re¬†¬† coming here with an iPhone 15 and you have an¬† eim you’re screwed you can’t use it unless you¬†¬†

Have service from home so I don’t know what I’m¬† going to do this is exactly why I wanted to keep¬†¬† my old iPhone but I guess I’m going to be stuck¬† without a phone the entire trip it is what it is¬†¬†

All right well damn I don’t even know what what¬† a ride to the hotel would roughly cost this is¬†¬† going to be hard all right I’m going to figure¬† something else something out right now I can’t¬†¬†

Even connect to Wi-Fi you can’t connect to the¬† Wi-Fi in Cairo Airport without a SIM card because¬†¬† it sends you a text message message so it sucks¬† man can’t believe that no eims in the country¬†¬†

And it’s one of the most visited countries in the¬† world crazy so once you make it through customs¬†¬† there’s actually rental car services ATMs um a¬† little statue that says welcome to Egypt which¬†¬† is pretty damn cool and right now I’m just going¬† to grab some cash and there’s all kinds of people¬†¬†

Trying to um sell taxis and uh Hotel transfer¬† so I’m just going to have to take one of those¬†¬† because yeah I have no phone absolutely nothing¬† just pulled out some cash I’ll actually show you¬†¬†

Guys what that looks like once we make it into the  car but um I just looked on my conversion app and   I believe $20 is around 600 um Egyptian pounds  so here the money is called the Egyptian pounds  

I think that’s fair that’s probably like the max¬† I should pay to get to my hotel so um let’s see¬†¬† right now who comes up and offers me something but¬† look at this welcome welcome to Egypt baby you got¬†¬†

A nice big Pharaoh right there as soon as you walk¬† on in how cool is that how much do um Nova 6th of¬†¬† October 6th oober Egyptian pound Egyptian pound¬† 650 egptian pound okay let’s go I’m following you¬†¬†

All right that was easy you’ll take that one for¬† me thank you welcome to Egypt you take me to Hotel¬†¬† you you D it’s busy today huh what very busy today¬† no no no no it looks busy the lines were so long¬†¬†

In Immigration yeah true true oh it’s nice and¬† fresh out here it’s nice warm beautiful sunset¬†¬† time now we’re walking on over to the car oh I’m¬† so happy to be here look at these desert sunsets¬†¬†

Oh these are going to be so nice to see look¬† we got a little Starbucks right there oh yeah¬†¬† this is nice I like it and it’s not hot because¬† it is winter time right now so it’s about 20¬į C¬†¬†

Which is around 60¬į Fahrenheit or 65 beautiful¬† weather actually it might be a little bit closer¬†¬† to 70 and you know what earlier I mentioned that¬† the Visa was $30 it was actually $25 and you got¬†¬†

To have American Cash you got to have American¬† cash for pretty much everything I’m not sure why¬†¬† that is but that’s just the way things work so¬† I actually had to ended up paying 700 for the¬†¬†

Ride to the hotel which is about uh $21 or so not¬† terrible but okay thank you not not terrible but¬†¬† definitely um don’t think that’s what it would¬† have cost me in the Uber but hey it is what it¬†¬†

Is I got to get there and I probably got to buy¬† a little burner phone now because yeah I need a¬†¬† SIM card while I’m here or else I’m going to¬† be pretty useless especially for the map you know thank you enjoy your day

Siram all right time to get these Egypt¬† Explorations I’m excited to see what things¬†¬† look like outside the window can I roll the¬† window down sir no English no English it’s¬†¬† okay very little Arab Shan all right well we got¬† here at perfect time because the Sun is setting¬†¬†

However we’ll still be able to um see a little¬† bit of the city First Impressions here we go now¬†¬† typically speaking I would definitely tell you¬† guys something different like you know always¬†¬† look for something that has like you know taxi¬† markings or whatnot but I was pretty much left¬†¬†

With no option right now and yeah I feel like¬† it was a a good call to just jump into a ride¬†¬† now what is the time right now oh it’s 4:55¬† and the sun’s already setting that’s crazy¬†¬†

I actually saw the little glow from the sunset¬† around um 4:00 so it’s been around for a while¬†¬† I mean look you get a little better view of it¬† now you know what let me not point the camera¬†¬†

Outside too much cuz there’s a little bit of or¬† quite a few like police and military checkpoints¬†¬† and the last thing I want is to be stop so yeah I¬† didn’t get told anything at all of course all I’m¬†¬†

Traveling with is a GoPro and a a cell phone but  um you can imagine that you go through a lot of   like security screenings where you have to stick  your duffel bag so you can imagine if you come  

Here with drones big cameras microphones you’re¬† going to call a lot of attention um but yeah¬†¬† everything everything went by extremely smooth my¬† driver’s on the phone right now he doesn’t speak¬†¬† any English but it’s all good we’re here we made¬† it to our destination not to be honest usually I¬†¬†

Get a little bit nervous um showing up to a place¬† for my very first time by myself um it’s been that¬†¬† way ever since I started traveling but right¬† now I feel extremely comfortable maybe because¬†¬†

I spent so much time in Tunisia recently and also¬† in uh Morocco but yeah look welcome to Cairo baby¬†¬† welcome to Cairo 2024 happy New Year this is where¬† we’re kicking off um the New Year I’m so excited¬†¬†

For what this year has to has or what this year is¬† going to bring let me know what you guys have in¬†¬† mind what are some of your goals for 2024 I know I¬† want to hit a million Subs let’s hope we can make¬†¬†

That happen hey how are you Salam and of course¬† now we’re going to be exploring Egypt so I’m so us all right so far Egyptians are super¬† cool I like it all right let’s hope it’s¬†¬† like this the whole time a lot of um¬† mix opinions on the country based off¬†¬†

Of YouTube videos that I watch some¬† people say it’s a rough place to¬†¬† travel others say it’s pretty smooth I¬† think I think it’s going to be a mix of both I’m excited first time Egypt all right we’re going through like this¬† uh checkpoint gate now I think there like a¬†¬†

Toll road to pay for for the highway and then¬† uh we’ll be well on our way you know what I¬†¬† had a perfect view outside of my window as we¬† were flying in um to Cairo I can see like the¬†¬†

Infrastructure and see like how densely populated¬† the city is but I couldn’t see the pyramids I was¬†¬† really looking for them and I couldn’t see¬† them however I did see the NY River views of¬†¬†

The deserts but yeah no sign of the pyramids from¬† the plane I was sitting on the right hand side so¬†¬† maybe if you’re flying into EG into Cairo sit on¬† the left hand side and quite possibly that might¬†¬†

Be where you view that um that iconic view of the¬† pyramids from the window out of but yeah we made¬†¬† it oh something about um visiting a new country¬† for the first time oh there’s a huge military¬†¬†

Checkpoint right now something about visiting a¬† country for the very first time is just oh man so awesome we just made it onto the highway I¬† didn’t realize that when I arrived here I¬†¬† thought we arriv in at the Sphinx International¬† Airport that’s the one that I had saw on the map¬†¬†

When I downloaded it I didn’t realize we landed¬† in the Cairo Airport that was near the new Kyo¬†¬† city so we actually got quite a drive probably¬† about 45 minutes based off of what I can see¬†¬†

On the map but let me just tell you guys so far¬† looks impressive here I mean the infrastructure¬†¬† is uh very nice the roads look amazing look you¬† got malls everywhere there’s one right there we¬†¬† passed by another one called Sun City and then¬† look at all of the advertisements on the highway¬†¬†

Super cool right and yeah there’s not much traffic¬† where we are right now but I can imagine that when¬†¬† you get closer to the city centers that it gets¬† pretty bad but yeah a lot of construction going¬†¬†

On you can tell that there’s a lot of developments¬† um happening it’s really cool to see I think after¬†¬† this I got to go to Algeria now because I’m¬† going to be missing Algeria and Libya for the¬†¬†

North Africa oh man what a place wow those signs¬† are huge I wonder what the petrol is here if it’s¬†¬† uh by liter or by gallon but yeah you can see um¬† what I was talking about while we were Landing¬†¬†

I mean look it’s just desert out here guys just¬† desert and I’ve been noticing based off of what¬†¬† I’ve been seen so far I’ve been noticing that a¬† lot of people smoke cigarettes here as well every¬†¬†

Car that I’ve been driving by everybody’s smoking¬† so um I guess cigarette culture is uh not frowned¬†¬† upon here well in a lot of the Arabic countries¬† in general I mean cigarette smoke is pretty much¬†¬† part of the culture I mean uh shisha cigarettes¬† coffee it’s how people socialize you know well¬†¬†

Not everybody I’m gener generalizing now but uh a¬† lot a large majority of people do love a nice um¬†¬† shisha and a coffee a cigarette and a coffee seems¬† to be very common not only here in North Africa¬†¬†

But also in Eastern Europe and in um the balans¬† but yeah look a lot of construction going on all right I’ll log back in once we make it a¬† little bit closer into the City and there’s¬†¬† um something something else to look at¬† besides just construction and and the¬†¬†

Highway but the highway is already super¬† impressive to me oh this building right¬†¬† here I don’t know what this one is Kinski¬† oh kinsky that’s the hotel um that one I¬†¬† could actually see from the airplane when¬† we were Landing so kinsky I was wondering¬†¬†

What the one with the blue roof was that’s¬† what it is Coca-Cola advertisements what is¬†¬† this vodo phone they should adverti that they¬† don’t sell eims crazy all right see you guys Soon now it’s quite impressive I’m¬† noticing that there’s a lot of like¬†¬† um car dealerships along the roads there’s¬† also plenty of shopping sensors I think I¬†¬† mentioned that a while back but another¬† really interesting observation that’s I’m¬†¬†

Noticing that there’s a lot of people walking¬† along the highways oh what is that College of Egypt oh wow that is beautiful oh thank you sir now I just looked on¬† the map it said that we’re going to be driving¬†¬†

By uh where the pyramids are so hopefully we¬† get a nice view of those as well but yeah the¬†¬† city super impressive but what I was saying is I¬† noticed that there’s a lot of people walking along¬†¬†

The highways and I think that uh they’re waiting¬† for rides or maybe that’s how they jump on the¬†¬† bus I’m not too sure I haven’t seen actually¬† anybody doing anything but I’ve seen so many¬†¬† people walking along the sites but yeah very¬† impressive City so far you know let’s put the¬†¬†

Window down a little bit more and I love these¬† Vans dude these Vans are awesome look they’re so small furniture stores yeah man this is cool¬†¬† and the buildings have such a¬† cool unique architecture to see

Them okay so that drive took about an hour and  a half but it was quite enjoyable I actually   knocked out for large majority of it but we just  made it here to the Nova Hotel this year is the  

Lobby it’s super beautiful you still got some¬† poinsettas they got a Christmas tree which is¬†¬† really interesting to see I’ve seen a lot of¬† Christmas decorations and being that this is¬†¬† primarily a Muslim country well it’s pretty um¬† odd to see but look they got a little computer¬†¬†

To work on this here is the bar man this is¬† awesome such a nice hotel all right well I’m¬†¬† going to get checked in right now but that¬† gentleman’s actually helping um out another¬†¬† family and it looks like over here in this area¬† there’s a restaurant buffet oh this is nice and¬†¬†

It smells lovely in here too look at this huge¬† gingerbread house I’ve never seen a gingerbread¬†¬† house this big before man they’re in more of the¬† Christmas spirit here in uh Egypt and they were¬†¬† over in America as of recently all right let’s¬† get checked in all right so the bman actually¬†¬†

Brought my stuff to the room I’m on the third¬† floor let’s see what the suite is looking like¬†¬† now I actually just got done adding breakfast and¬† dinner to all of my uh stay dinners were only 700¬†¬†

Is to head into ancient Cairo the old part of the¬† city that’s where I’m going to be kicking off the¬†¬† series and then I’ll be making my way around the¬† city now last night I actually ended up booking¬†¬†

A last minute Nile River Cruise because that’s¬† what a lot of people do here in Egypt and I’m¬†¬† cutting my trip extremely close but I think I’m¬† going to manage to make that happen so I have¬†¬†

A feeling that in the next few days we’re going¬† to be flying to a swan to make the River Cruise¬†¬† happen look they also have like some little¬† hangout areas for the kids beautiful hotel I¬†¬† love all of the green spaces but yeah please let¬† me know down in the comments any recommendations¬†¬†

You might have for Egypt where else should I visit¬† I mean there’s so many places to see but only um¬†¬† very short on time I will be back however so¬† drop me down recommendations who knows maybe¬†¬†

I’ll come back a lot sooner than later maybe I’ll¬† change my flight I don’t know but um for now uh¬†¬† let’s get back over there and see if the omelet¬† is ready but yeah that’s the outdoor Terrace¬†¬†

Looks amazing let’s go on in there and try this¬† who knows I might have to get a crepe later too bum okay breakfast was great and¬† I was actually able to come upstairs¬†¬† change my flight for only a $75 fee¬† on Qatar Airways and I was able to¬†¬†

Find a website let me tell you guys it’s a website called Olaf fly h o l a f l y Olaf fly and that’s¬† where you can actually purchase an eim so if you¬†¬† have a iPhone 15 like I do um or any other¬† phone that requires the eim and you can’t get¬†¬†

One here in Egypt use that application it’s kind¬† of expensive it’s about ‚ā¨40 for 10 days compared¬†¬† to the SIM card at the airport that’s 15 EUR for¬† the same amount of time but it’s unlimited data¬†¬†

It’s eim you need it you know what I mean and¬† I actually just noticed that there’s a mosque I¬†¬† don’t know if you guys can really tell behind the¬† tree but there’s a mosque this place is beautiful¬†¬†

It’s going to be a nice place to relax but yeah¬† guys for now I think I’m going to end this video¬†¬† I hope you guys enjoyed the journey um getting to¬† the hotel my first little um experience arriving¬†¬†

To Egypt it wasn’t as stressful as everybody says¬† it was or it is I mean you got to be smart guys¬†¬† you got to um plan accordingly Egypt is not one¬† of those countries where you can come to with¬†¬†

Microphones tons of camera equipment drones and¬† not have permission there’s a lot of videos on¬†¬† YouTube saying um that this is like the worst¬† country to enter that it’s one of the hardest¬†¬† countries to enter but that simply is not true I¬† think you just have to do your due diligence and¬†¬†

You know plan accordingly there’s a video going¬† viral on the internet about Egypt um by Sony from¬†¬† the best ever Food review show and to be honest¬† I love the guys videos I love all of his videos¬†¬†

I watch them all the time but his video that he¬† created here in Egypt with the thumbnail saying¬†¬† it’s the worst country has like 10 million views¬† which means 150 million people probably seen that¬†¬† thumbnail and several million that watch the video¬† or saw the thumbnail probably changed their whole¬†¬†

Ideas of coming to Egypt simply because of that¬† video and I think it’s wrong so so um keep that¬†¬† in mind I had no problems at all coming in um¬† everybody’s super kind welcoming and I’m looking¬†¬†

Forward to spending the next two weeks here in¬† Egypt so um for now I’ll leave you guys a little¬†¬† more view of the noael here in the 6th of October¬† area of Cairo and I’ll see you guys again soon for¬†¬†

Another adventure now that I got the SIM card¬† I’m feeling good I’m feeling relaxed I’m about¬†¬† to order an Uber after I brush my teeth and then¬† we’ll head off into ancient Cairo and kick the¬†¬†

Series off right first I need some cash though¬† I need some cash and then um we’ll be well on¬†¬† our way now the Uber to ancient Cairo from here¬† is only 200 Egyptian pounds so around $5 not bad¬†¬†

At all anyways um that’s it for now I’ll see you¬† guys again soon for another one later guys you always was the one to take I remember
