    You can walk like an Egyptian with your head held high at the newly-opened lifestyle destination, Walk of Cairo, which was designed to answer every desire you have during this festive season and beyond. Egypt’s first high-street lifestyle destination, Walk of Cairo, was designed by award-winning Miami based architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), who were also behind the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa. Impressive? You haven’t heard it all just yet.

    Offering fun for everybody is Walk of Cairo’s RIG Park, where a modern amphitheatre holds an array of exciting activities including music events, workshops, dance classes, along with street bites for the rumbling bellies. Walk of Cairo features a pedestrian walkway that holds an 8-metre gorilla statue, and an angel wings installations on its wall that offers a picturesque stroll that will surely generate captivating memories.

    Once you feel the hunger creep in, you can satisfy your palates with a selection of international restaurants including Kampai, Seray, Lily’s, L’avenue, Benihana, among other delectable options. As for the children, they can release their energy and run wild at Fly Trampoline, and get friendly with the deer, peacocks, and the other creatures at Tails of Cairo. You can join them as well!

    Located in 6th of October city’s Sheikh Zayed, Walk of Cairo consists of 1.5 KM of open-air walkways that features everything from dining outlets, retail stores, and a one-of-a-kind Museum of Illusions. You might have seen pictures of the museum all over social media, and that’s because it truly is something extraordinary that should be experienced first-hand. Don’t let your eyes trick you… or maybe you should!

    Located in the heart of Walk of Cairo is THE EDITION, where you’ll be spending hours browsing through fashion and music events, along with exciting art exhibitions that will enable your imagination to run free. Pass by to view THE EDITION’S collaboration with Maison 69 store any day before the 11th of January!

    Safe to say, if you’re looking to update your Instagram page with the coolest snaps and escape your prisoning indoors, we suggest you head over there any day of the week, and fill your camera roll! In fact, we were just there over the weekend to experience Walk of Cairo’s unique Xmas Street Walks that featured street parades, jugglers, and Santa himself honoured us with an appearance. Turns out, Santa has answered our wishes with the opening of Cairo’s newest hotspot!
