    performances absolutely encapsulate all that
    Egyptian culture is.

    hotels, have a permanent belly dance performance
    every night.

  • Almost every major historical site in Egypt
    provides a sound and light show with certain
    schedules and a number of languages.
  • These sites include the Pyramids of Giza, the
    Karnak Temple, the Temple of Philae, and many
    other monuments.
  • These performances begin as soon as the sun goes
    down and involve the historical site being
    illuminated by different colors and shades while
    a recorded voice tells the audience about the
    history and the mythology of the monument.

  • Although Egypt is considered to be an Islamic
    country, there are many bars around the country,
    other than these located inside five stars
    hotels, where the prices are far cheaper but
    never less enjoyable.
  • Alexandria features a large number of bars, due
    to the fact that the city was host to a large
    number of foreigners in the 19th and the 20th
    centuries. There is the beautiful Cap d'Or Bar
    that  will make you feel like they are in a real

    youth of the city.

    Jarre performance in the Pyramids during the

    for the performance of live modern western music
    is the Cairo Jazz Club which is located in
    Agouza, near the Island of Zamalek in Cairo.
    There is usually a live band playing most nights.
