If you’re looking for new places in Egypt to spend the day (or a few nights) whether with the family or your friends, look no further. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite spots on days out to keep you and the whole group entertained.

Ta-che (Fayoum)

An absolute gem of a place resting right on top of a hill near Lake Qarun and Wadi El Rayan. The boutique hotel overlooks the olive farms, giving its residents a stellar view that just so happens to be accessible through the various different seating areas within and surrounding the hotel.

Andrea (Mariouteya)

The perfect place for a Friday family lunch. The restaurant serves the most scrumptious traditional food that simply tastes nostalgic. You can get your name customized in a sand bottle, watch your bread being baked the old-school way over the coals or even take a donkey ride.
