CairoScene Ramadan Guide 2017

With only so much time between iftar and sohour, we figured we'd save you the hassle and round up all the places you can celebrate the holy month of Ramadan. Keep checking back for updates!

The world starts to spin in slow motion, it feels like ages since you’ve had your last sip of water, and you’re barely making it through. Yet, it’s only 4 PM. You still have long to go before you can replenish, and it seems you’ll be sticking to tamr and lesan 3asfour soup for iftar because it’s too much of a hassle to start looking for a place to cater to your cravings.

Then, out of the blue, the Cairo Scene Ramadan guide comes in for the rescue, dressed in a long esdal, with a soothing promise that you will be making the most out of this year’s holy month. While the leeway between iftar and sohour seems too short to spend scrolling through your phone, religiously taking a look through all the places around the country on the constantly-updav guide should be considered a daily ritual.
