How to enjoy Egypt during Ramadan as a tourist?

Thought a little inconvenient as it may be, visiting Egypt during Ramadan is truly a fantastic way to discover an important part of the Egyptian culture and enjoy the special atmosphere pervading throughout the country. Houses, mosques and some streets are specially illuminated with Fanous Ramadan (special Ramadan lanterns), creating a magical atmosphere and the culture, the prayer and the sharing of food, everything here makes it a very rewarding experience.

During Ramadan, the general pace of life in Egypt slows down compared to that in normal days. Shops, museums, and historical attractions officially close earlier before sunset. Some restaurants and cafés open only after sunset and may stop serving alcoholic beverages.

While almost all tourist hotels will be completely operational, including their restaurants and bars serving meals and alcoholic drinks as usual. Some hotels may hold "parties" at night with very friendly atmosphere and everyone is welcome, even though you are non-Muslim.
