About a decade ago, most tourists found that the range of entertainment in Egypt, especially outside Cairo, is rather limited. However, today touristic cities like Alexandria, Luxor, Aswan, Sharm El Sheikh, Dahab, Hurghada, and Marsa Alam offer a wide range of entertainment means for the travelers from all ages.
Away from the common bars, restaurants, discos, and cafes that tourists would find almost everywhere around the land of the Nile, especially in larger cities, today we will shed some light on other entertainment means that would interest tourists visiting Egypt from all regions of the world.
Although 90% of Egyptians are Muslim, the dress code that coincides with the religion is not enforced in Egypt. Despite this fact, modesty is still very important to Egyptians so many of the women wear clothes that cover all parts of their bodies. Many women do wear either a hijab (a covering for the neck and head) or a niquab (a covering of the face and head); however, it is not uncommon to see an Egyptian woman without a head covering. Due to the heat, many of their garments are light weight and loose fitting to help keep them cool.
Music has been an integral part of Egyptian culture since antiquity. The Bible documents the instruments played by the ancient Hebrews, all of which are correlated in Egyptian archaeology. Egyptian music probably had a significant impact on the development of ancient Greek music, and via the Greeks was important to early European music well into the Middle Ages. The modern music of Egypt is considered Arabic music as it has been a source for or influence on other regional styles. The tonal structure of Arabic music is defined by the maqamat, loosely similar to Western modes, while the rhythm of Arabic music is governed by the iqa'at, standard rhythmic modes formed by combinations of accented and unaccented beats and rests.strange laws
I have three strange Egyptian laws: You can be imprisoned for not voting - all families with only one son don't have to send him to the army, but if they have two or more sons they should be send to the army but not at the same time, so that there is always one son home - public displays of affection are illegal -
