15 Of Ramadan Hangouts Where Food Is Not The Highlight

Following the great success of our previous post about 17 Of Cairo’s Hangouts Where Food Is Not The Highlight, we found out that the Egyptian people is after all keen to get off that couch, and do more than just sitting, eating, watching TV, smoking shisha, or hanging around cafes, and because the holy month of Ramadan is not all about Ramadan Tents, having Iftar or Souhour out, and smoking shisha that’s why we have combined a list of 15 of Ramadan Hangouts Where Food Is Not The Highlight.
