in the right kind of mood. Cairo’s autumn weather is even calling for this cool activity!

Enjoy the Instagrammable Views at 9 Pyramids Lounge

The gradual opening of this restaurant with breathtaking views has given us all the more reasons
to explore it. Just imagine lunching in front of one of the Seven Wonders of the World! This new
spot offers grilled dishes that will leave your taste buds satisfied – just think of their shish
tawook and kebabs. We bet you’ll never find a place with a view quite like the one at 9 Pyramids

Bask in the Moonlight at Wadi Degla

Nothing screams “Autumn nights” more than a camping night under the full moon. And you can
literally do just that in Cairo when you join Footloose Egypt’s event in Wadi Degla this Friday.
Their camping night, Under the Full Moon, will give you the chance to marvel at the beauty of
the full moon on a chilly night. So, get your blankets on and join them!

Fancy a classical night? You can chill and listen to your favorite tunes by Omar Khairat this
weekend at Al Manara, New Cairo. This is the kind of event you can surprise your parent with
