Nightlife and Entertainment

Cairo has always been famous for its nightlife. And although some of it is a bit rundown, although all the bellydancers are from Russia and although the Gulf Arabs coming over for weekend brides are not your favourite clientele, there is still a lot of fun to be had at night.

I would suggest you skip the big expensive western hotels and try to go to one of the casinos along the Nile river.
