Al Barajil, Bashtil and Kirdasah, are nearby suburbs which are also worth discovering.
If the sun is shining, follow the lead of the locals who know the area best and head outside to the local natural destinations. Read a book or newspaper in one of the parks and gardens, which include the Aquarium Grotto Garden.
Awsim is a place steeped in sporting history. Visit nearby Arab Contracters Stadium, home to the Arab Contractors Sporting Club soccer team in winter and the Telecom Egypt Football Club. Relive the match’s highlights over a few drinks with friendly locals after the full-time siren blows in one of the nearby pubs, clubs or bars.
Finding somewhere suitable to unpack your bags around the Awsim area is simple. The Fairmont Nile City Cairo, the Cairo Marriott Hotel & Omar Khayyam Casino and the Conrad Cairo are just three of the many great places to stay around here.
