Overall
Describe host city: Students equally interact with the local and student community
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Activities: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Some of the nicest places to go to at night include La Bodega, Club 35, Cairo Jazz Club, and Latex at the Nile Hilton. During the day it is nice to just spend some time at cafes such as Tabasco,L'Aroma, and Cilantro. Among the other things that I would recommend are visiting the pyramids and doing some site seeing whenever possible as there are so many interesting things to see due to the history of the country.

Personal comments:
Latex and Bling Bling are the two big clubs in Egypt, if you like sleazy night clubs- nothing can top these too. Girls- Remember that this isn't the states and guys here have other expectations of you. The best place to get a beer after class is at Cafe Hurrayah. In Zamelek, Sheesha is fun at Versailles, Goal is great for late night sheesha and is cheaper than at Versailles. Of course you have to go to Khan and go to Fishaways. TRAVEL TRAVEL TRAVEL!!!!! Dahab is AMAZING Foodwise- Go use otlob.com! Its the best for ordering out. Ask kids who have been there for awhile which resturants are the best, I loved Didos and Cafe Tobasco, Euro Deli, and a whole bunch of other places. Everyone delivers late- so enjoy!

Favorite place to hang out all night smoke sheesha is Aruba cafe located of the 24th of July street. Favorite all night breakfast eatery, Roy County Kitchen, Can't get any more American than that in a foreign place. Many wonderful night spent there. Its located in the Cairo Marriot... Where the Casino are located also. There is also a few great night spots in Mahandessen but they are sort of underground. So you got meet the right people.
