Your Guide to Having Fun as a Female in Egypt
By Lojain El Shawaf
Girl, you deserve some fun. Put the dull life aside and start focusing on the adventures you’re missing. Men tend to have more fun than women in Egypt but today we’re proving this theory wrong. Check out some of the activities you can do to break the boredom forever.
Travel your way out
The only universal rule everyone knows and everyone believes in is ”whenever you get the chance, pack your bags and travel.” Of course there are numerous places in Egypt that are female friendly. One of the best is the diving course in Marsa Alam with the female Italian diving instructors.
Drive like the Jim Clark you are
We don’t get to show our driving talents as females in the streets of Cairo for many reasons, among them the horrible traffic and of course, the ”women can’t drive” accusations we get all the time. To solve this problem, go to your local karting arena where you can race, drive freely, and feel like an astronaut on a mission all at once.
Get your joystick ready
Gaming isn’t only for boys anymore. That stereotype is fast becoming obsolete. Walk confidently to your nearest Playstation cafe and travel back in time to those long gone teenage years.
Who said the Qahwa Balady is only for men?
The Qahwa is not an ordinary female kind of a go-to place. Girls usually prefer luxury, but change is necessary especially with the many qahwa’s becoming female friendly around Cairo, especially in Downtown Cairo.
Spas are your ultimate best friend
This entry is the only one on the list that is entirely invaded by females. But some just don’t know how fun they are. Getting pampered is the best form of fun especially when you really need it.
