    That's okay, but "with" wouldn't work in the above.

    You could say,
    ... a very popular place with tourists.

    That's not a sentence.

    With my changes above, it's a correct sentence. To use "with", it would be "Cairo is a very popular place with tourists from all over the world."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: popular for/with?

    The exercise there seems to be a 'Spot the mistake' exercise. The indefinite article is the mistake in that sentence.

    Re: popular for/with?

    Only 'all over the world' is correct.

    The book is wrong.
