Why are there many foreigners moving to Egypt?

Every time I read something on the Internet involving the Arabic language, the person always says that they lived in Cairo or Egypt. If you are one of those people, could you please tell me why many people are going to Cairo and why they chose Cairo specifically (or at least Egypt in general)? Thank you. I'm Syrian, Arab, and Muslim, so I'll understand any answers regarding us Arabs.

I can't tell you why many people do anything.. I can only really speak for myself: I married an Egyptian that's why I went. I've got a wanderlust and I happened to fall in love with a foreign person. He couldn't come to the states yet so I went there to live after traveling there many times.

Well ya, like one of the others said lots of muslim people from many countries( mainly non-arab) go their to study things about arabic, islam and stuff like that. I'm not really sure about the rest though. As for myself I'm half egyptian so I have relatives there.
