What to do in Cairo, Egypt?

what to do in cairo



Hey Fashionistas,



This is part three of my travel series. Our next stop is Cairo, Egypt. Bevor I start telling you about what we did I want to talk about Egypt as a whole.


The number question we received from friends, family and other people we met along the way is “Did you feel safe”, or “Is it safe to visit Egypt”. Yes, we felt safe but we also didn’t walk around at night. We only booked private tours and we don’t look like a super tourist with a huge camera hanging around my neck. If you acknowledge your surroundings and don’t act naive you will have a good experience - but that applies to anywhere you’re going.

Hey Fashionistas,


We are done with traveling (for now). We took 15 flights in just 3 weeks. We started our journey in London and finished it in Dubai with a lot of stops in between. I am going to break down each city and tell you about my experience and my recommendations. 

As I mentioned before we started in London. This is a 10 hour and something direct flight from LAX. Not bad at all for even a mini getaway. Nowadays you already find cheap airfares that take you there.

We stayed at Lords Hotel and I wouldn’t recommend this place at all. It was located in Notting Hill which is a great area for being central plus this area has tons of restaurants and bars. But the downside was that we had to carry our luggage all the way up to the 4th floor. Internet access wasn’t free and they even charged us for storing out luggage before the flight left. Is this is a great way to make more money or to exploit the tourists? 

We stayed 2 1/2 days in London and this is a typical itinerary to see everything that’s worth seeing. 

Day 1:

We arrived at around 2PM so we still had the entire day in front of us, considering the fact that the sun goes up at 5 AM and goes down at 9:30PM. We explored the area around our hotel. It was my second time in London and it was Eric’s first.

On my sightseeing list for this day:

Notting Hills colorful houses. Our hotel wasn’t too far so we walked to Notting Hill. This area has lots of restaurants and bars. We ended up eating at a Thai place which was pretty good. Notting Hill has a lot of Insta spots to offer - which you will find as you walk. After seeing all these colorful houses we walked to Churchill’s Pub. Turns out it was more difficult to get a great shot because of all the cars passing by.

Next stop: Our hotel for a quick outfit change. 

Before dinner, we stopped at Piccadilly Circus which looks like the Time Square which all its lights and advertisement. I recommend coming here when it’s already dark to get the whole atmosphere. Be aware that this is a very touristic spot.

My first time around I also went to the Tower Bridge after darkness because the entire bridge lights up. So I wanted to show hubby how it looks.

Initially, we wanted to go to Feya cafe but by the time we arrived the cafe was already closed so we saved this spot for day 3 and instead we found this amazing Italian restaurant. 2 Pizzas and a rose later we drove back to our hotel.

Day 2:

We started the day early to get a prime seating spot at Peggy Porschen - one of the most Instagrammable cafes in London. The cafe is such a cute corner spot to eat breakfast. We got a variety of pastries and cupcakes. The cafe filled up in no time.

Peggy Porschen is in walking distance from the Bakery Ansel. On your way there you will find a lot of stores with flower decoration and photo opportunities. We didn’t end up eating at the bakery but we stopped for a quick photo.

From here we walked to Buckingham Place. At around 10 AM we saw the change of the guards. A good amount of people were waiting for this moment but it left me feeling disappointed. Not that I expect anything crazy but it was literally just the change of the guard. Nothing special.

After that, we walked to the next tube station (underground) and made our way to Westminster Abbey. This area covers a lot of sightseeing attractions.

Parliament Square

The Victoria Tower Gardens


Here you’ll find the church the Royals got married at, you can see the Big Ben which is currently wrapped in bubble wrap at least that what it seems like until 2021. It sucked that the Big Ben was under constructions but nothing we could do about it. Also in the area Parliament Square, Palace of Westminster, and The Victoria Tower Gardens.

After we relaxed at the park we made our way back to the underground station and jumped into another train to see the Tower Bridge this time during day time. The best pics can be taken from the Dolphin Fountain.

Next Insta stop: London Eye

The London Eye is basically a huge fairy wheel with egg looking chambers. My recommendation reserve your ticket online this will save you a few pounds (or dollars in our case). You can select a time slot but it does not matter because you still end up in a line waiting for your turn to ride. This is a great way to see London from above.

The ride takes about 30 minutes and afterward, we walked to a Fish and Chips Food truck. What would a visit to London be without Fish & Chips? 

It started to rain for the second half of the day so our next stop was perfect. We drove via train of course to the National History Museum. Typically I am not a big fan museum and I wouldn’t normally “waste” my vacation to see art but this museum is a must-do. It’s free to visit which is good and bad because it attracts a lot of people. The museum is incredibly and way too big at the same time. We were trying to find the exist but ended up in a whole lot of exhibitions. After an hour of searching for the exit, we finally found it.

Next stop: Saint Aymes Cafe

This cafe has a super cute interior and is serving sweets like donuts, waffles, and everything gold related. You can get cotton candy with gold, our donut was decorated with gold too.

Day 3:

Our last day started with you guessed it -  a stop at a cafe. This time we had breakfast at Feya Cafe. The place is super cute and the food is even more impressive. Eric had the pancake breakfast with edible flowers and purple whipped cream and I ate the rainbow smoothie bowl. I love the attention to detail this restaurant puts into their dishes. Defiantly worth a stop.

Next stop: Leadenhall market which is not necessary to see but you can take a quick pic just to say you were here.

After that, we visited the St. Paul’s Cathedral from the outside. Admission is horrendously expensive. A great spot to take a pic for your Instagram is at the mall.

We also stopped at Convent Garden which was in my opinion, not a needed stop because it is just an outdoor mall packed with people.

We also visited Neals Yard which is known for its colorful houses and restaurants. Since we are on a tight schedule we just snapped some pics and headed to the next stop.

From here we took the train to Hyde Park. You could spend an entire day here but we just walked to the lake and made our way to the next food stop. Initially, we wanted to eat at this cafe but it seemed very small from the outside and the food looked disappointing. Not to mentioned the hostess was rude so we left.

So we decided to go back to the Italian Place from Day 2. After we had dinner the other day at this place I joked and said to Eric will be back tomorrow he laughed. Turns out I was dead serious. Two pizzas and a rose later we had to go back to our hotel to leave to the airport.

My resume: In just these 2 1/2 days we walked more than we would ever walk in a month. Both of my feet had blisters and jumping in and out of trains gave me sore throat but we wouldn’t have done it any other way.  

Thanks for stopping by!
