In addition to this, capital city Cairo offers an exciting nightlife and appeals to culture-seekers with splendid restaurants and opera. It is worth noting that it may be difficult to find teaching jobs outside of Cairo due to the capital being so central to the Egyptian economy. However, jobs in Cairo often offer the best salaries in North Africa.
