Places To Enjoy Ramadan Nights Nearly For Free

Because going out for Iftar, Souhour, or a Ramadan get together comes at a high cost, you can do it once, twice or maybe three times but you cannot keep on doing it every single weekend -that’s in case you only go out over weekends :). As Cairo has a lot to see, and do, and most of its gems are yet to be discovered, we have put together a list of interesting art performances taking place during the holy month of Ramadan, that you could enjoy with family, and friends in historical places that take you to another era, combining magnificent architecture, with jaw-dropping art, while spending zero to 50 Egyptian Pounds. (Photo: Al-Mo’ez Street at night by Omar Hikal)
