Tired of going to the exact same spot every weekend? Or traveling and not knowing how to properly explore the city? The country is filled with hidden gems and underrated places that we still have not checked off our lists. Its not only how to get there that we are searching for, we also need honest reviews, visual documentation and understanding the overall ambience.
This is where TikTok comes and saves the day! Content creators have been taking the platform by storm, documenting their every move and exclusively giving users a screening of the best places to travel, eat and chill!
Throughout the hot summer season, TikTok has been witnessing a plethora of vlogs where foodies are rating local food spots and travelers, both locals and tourists, shouting out the best way to explore the sandy beaches of Egypt.
Your #1 destination for everything summer on the platform can be explored through the #summercheck challenge that gained around 530Mn views in no time! Creators have been taking on the challenge of showing their summer essentials and favorites.
The soundtrack provided by TikTok widened everyone’s creativity in performing a video that best speaks his or her own language. Take @abdallahenawy’s day in Ain Sokhna and @ziadsalemm’s vacation vlog as inspiration to create your own Summer Check video as we cherish the final weeks of summer!
To be honest, summer without food is a no-deal! And your go-to would be @explorewithlaila. Laila has been experimenting and documenting different food outlets throughout the country. She has seen it all, from ice cream trucks to high-end dining overlooking the crystal blue waters. Make sure to watch her brunches by the beach, hidden gems on the North Coast, and summer nightlife videos before your next trip to the Sahel! Once we are back in our daily Cairo routines, you can also explore her top favorite local breakfast spots throughout the city.
Hearing it from the locals, @livingthedash_ has to be one of your favorite domestic travelers. The content creator provides detailed tips and tricks for visiting different local spots and even shares average budgets, what more can we ask for?

In case you believe that local content creators might be slightly biased, we also gathered foreigners checking in for a summer in the land of pharos! Watch @maryamxruby holidaying in Egypt videos, Lebanese @worldnomac30-episode trip to Egypt, and maybe explore other countries whilst you are it!
