Hello all!!
I'm planning a trip to Egypt - late December to early January. I'm a 29 y/o American, travelling alone (backpacking) and will be on a semi-budget (no 5-star stuff).

Looking for affordable lodging in the Downtown Cairo area - preferably walking distance to the Cairo Museum. Price range- approx $25 USD or 145.654 EGP

Also, I'm looking for a fun place to celebrate New Years - as of now, It looks like I'll try to get to Dahab for New Years unless anyone else has a better suggestion...

I'm sooo excited for this!!

Wil from San Francisco

Hey wil
Lol how awsome...I'm atravel helper from Egypt ..I'm now in California - Anahiem.LOL

Ok I can help with some info while i'm out of Egypt. For a cheap hotel near Cairo Musiam ..there is the Canadia Hostel ...a nice & tedy place ...Just 3 mints walk from cairo musium ...

For Th Christmas ...You have 2 options ..whether u stay in Cairo there is a lot of places that you can go toin christmas ...& the other option is Sharm Elshaick which is more prefarable at christmas than any other place ...BUT watch it prices gets high in every where in Christmas ..& also you have to book everything before you come here

For Dahab ..which i agree with you is the most wonderfull place in Sinai area ...the best time you can go to Dahab is the second week of Jan ...Prices start to get down ...

Hope that could help you for now ...for any further inquieries just hit me back
