Situated in North Africa and with a population of more than 80 million, Egypt is one of the most populated countries in the Middle East. It is also arguably one of the most interesting, with a history that dates back thousands of years. If you’re thinking of moving to Cairo, Egypt’s capital and largest city, you’ll find the streets are crowded and activity is non-stop, but you’ll see it has both a modern and an ancient feel at the same time. When you move to Egypt you’ll find that religion plays a major part of everyday life and as you go about your activities you’ll hear the Islamic call to prayer five times a day. You’re advised to be respectful of these beliefs and act accordingly.
