Cairo can be compared to a furnace during the summer. The sun typically rises at approximately 5 am and sets at approximately 8 pm. The best way to go to coastal retreats during the summer is for those with the financial capacity. Nonetheless, through some simple rules you can still have a memorable time in Cairo during the summer. First, before it gets too hot, you should tour early. You should also avoid micro busses because they can get too hot at night. Also, you should know where the nearest swimming pool can be. This post highlights the attractions you can visit during the summer in Cairo.

If you're in Cairo in the month of August, you can choose to take part in the most popular event in Islamic Cairo: the festival of music of the Salah El Din Citadel! You will probably find the festival packed with excited locals who brave the swelling heat to enjoy local musical performances. This festival has also started showing musicians from the Arab world in recent years. Tickets to this function are relatively inexpensive compared with the high cost of nearly everything in Egypt. You can take a nice night to buy a festival ticket at LE5 and observe the various types of people gathered to celebrate the festival. This usually begins at 8 PM to 10 PM, although the timing can differ. Upon sunset, you can enjoy the nightlife of Cairo. Cairo usually lights up at night. You can stop and relax as you smoke Shisha in one of the local shops.

Recharge While You Seek Some Late Night Shisha Warm Cairo Summers don't prefer socialization during the day. But, as the evening arrives and heat drops, you will likely notice an increase in road traffic. You will also see locals pulling plastic chairs to relax as they enjoy shisha. You can choose lemonade or your favorite shisha flavor mixture to relax after a long day (it is better to have a mint flavor in the summer). The popular Barrels Bar or the historic Windsor Hotel can also provide a cocktail. Although its heyday is long gone, the Windsor Hotel remains an excellent place to enjoy a beer while relaxing. To enjoy a great night, you can also enjoy Egyptian cultural performances outside at the Opera House in Cairo.

Cairo Opera House and an open-air show Visit Cairo Opera House On the foothills of the old Royal Opera House that burned down in 1971 is the architectural marvel of Cairo Opera House. At the Cairo Opera House you will enjoy the best of Cairo's theatrical performances. Sadly, the Opera is usually closed in the summer month of August. Unless you happen to be in Egypt in July, however, you can buy an opera ticket and attend wonderful performances. You may expect performances from the Heritage Arab Music Ensemble, from the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, or from a contemporary Egyptian dance company in the regular program of the opera. You can expect recitals from future performers as well. The combination of classical ballets and modern performances in the Cairo Opera is usually an interesting combination of modern performances. After having a night at the Opera House, you can walk along the Qasr El Nil Bridge to enjoy panoramic views while the cool evening brisk blows. Here you will probably find couples, families and friends who enjoy an exquisite view.

In Cairo, there is a tendency to socialize in the evenings or in the mornings because of the rising heat during the day. In the middle of the day you can hardly perform any pleasant tasks in Cairo. Nevertheless, you can lease a pass to a pool. At the Gezira club in Zalmazek, LE150 can be charged to use either the lounge or the Olympic swimming pool during the day. You can check out the pool at Hilton Hotel if you want a more luxurious pool, better service and a better view. The Nile Cruise Cairo also has the option of seeing Egypt in another light while experiencing Egypt in a cooler and more relaxed environment.
