Under $100 / Africa

No one thinks of Egypt without thinking of Cairo. This world-renowned city is the capital and the metropolitan area is one of the largest in Africa.

 

Enjoy a hearty breakfast at the Alfredo Restaurant. They offer great vegetarian and vegan options for a reasonable price. The cuisine is Middle Eastern so get those taste buds ready for some spice. Breakfast is less expensive than dinner and lunch and should run no more than $15.

Begin the day at the massive Egyptian Museum. This building is home to the most extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the world, including the tomb of King Tut. The entry fee is only $7.

Eat your fill at the Indira Indian Restaurant. This spot is great for those looking to add some Indian food to the trip. Reviewers rave this is the best place to get it. The restaurant is also vegetarian-friendly. The lunch menu isn’t too expensive and will reasonably cost someone around $15.

After lunch visit Old Cairo and Islamic Cairo. Both neighborhoods teem with the history of Egypt and are enjoyable to walk through.

The hummus at this restaurant is fantastic. Stop by for a great dinner on the Nile. There are hanging lights that keep the area well lit as the sun goes down over Egypt’s most famous river. The price is a bit steeper considering the location, but budgeting around $35 per person should suffice.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.
