American University in Cairo (AUC) Bookshop: "Looking for English books?" Cairo Shopping Tip by Tijavi

Cairo Shopping: 183 reviews and 248 photos

 
 

As always, no foreign trip is complete for me without a visit to a local bookshop. The one at the AUC has an extensive selection of English titles ranging from dailies to Egypt-themed coffee table books. They also print detailed Cairo road maps, which are very useful for navigating and exploring the city.

The bookshop could be accessed from Muhammad Mahmoud St. Keep a copy of your passport ready in case the guard asks for it at the gate. The bookshop is open from 9am-5pm Sat-Thu (closed on Fri).
