BELLY DANCING AND WATCHES

by stud420

u can enjoy belly dance at many places especially in night dinner cruise in nile river.

Re: BELLY DANCING AND WATCHES

Belly dancing can be found in the five stars hotels night clubs particularly in Al Haram (Pyramids) street and dinner nile cruises. You will not find replica watches sold as such as you do in far east !

hey ,,

do u knw whats the price per person as i will be travelling alone ,, hw much they charge single person on nile cruise and which are the clubs on al-haram street ..

Re: BELLY DANCING AND WATCHES

by theknight

You can't miss the night clubs of Al haram street & any taxi can easily take you there .. Unfortunately, I cannot offer specific advice as I have never been in any but you are likely to spend a several hundred pounds if not more .. I know that the Marriott Hotel has its own cruise ship which goes out at least once / day for supper & belly dancing etc.. I know that this is one of the best and would therefore recommend it .. look up their website & may be send an e-enquiry .. All the best !

Take me to the Meridian....

by kenmerk

If you want to go to the Hard Rock Cafe in Cairo for a burger and/or a t-shirt, it is located in the Hyatt hotel, which is one of the tallest buildings right downtown on the Nile...

One would think that taxis drivers would easily know where the Hyatt is, but this is not the case... (I tried 4 or 5 different cabbies)

But if you tell them to take you to the Meridian, they will take you to the Hyatt....(I guess the Hyatt is relatively new there... or used to be called the Meridian or something like that...)

Another strategy would be to say " Take me to the Nile", and then point at it, and say "that tall one over there...."

by Heavens-Mirror

Just look at those amazing views of the pyramids at night, you can guarantee the sunset will be different each night during your stay so make sure you get plenty of photos. They look great blown up & framed onto your wall at home....

Brave it!

by leigh767

Though the traffic may seem impossibly overwhelming at first, over time youwill get used to it and crossing no longer becomes a matter of life-and-death. But for those still too scared to cross on their own, stand "downstream" from a local Egyptian and just shadow him closely. To put it crudely, at least there's a buffer between you and the car if it's gonna hit anything.

On a more serious note, look for police posts. Policemen standing by a road, espcially if they are holding a baton, are on duty to stop the traffic at intervals to let the people cross safely.

Lastly, DON'T ALWAYS TRUST the pedestrian lights. Green man doesn't mean a car won't come speeding by from around the corner.

Also, having lived in Egypt for a month, I have yet to witness/hear any road accident involving collision of any kind. So don't let the surface chaos scare you too much-- the drivers actually are very clear about what they are doing. :)
