While many people think of nightlife as bumping clubs, light displays, and a DJ busy at the table working his magic while drinks flow and the mood is electric, others look to a calmer approach, one to actually absorb and drink in their atmosphere. Tired of the wild nights found in the resort towns of Egypt? Why not call it a nice night off in Aswan.
While Aswan is usually a major stop for vacationers exploring the Nile it's not something really considered for it's “ club scene” and in that I believe is where the magic is. While the music may not be hard, you are more likely to find a beautiful coffee house of European, Arabic, or African cultural roots ( and trust me, they all do coffee and the act of enjoying coffee in ways you would never know until you try it yourself) There is perfect time to relax, sit back and take a trip to a local park and watch the sun finish it's journey for the day
If that is not enough there is also a wonderful opportunity to catch live performances through different cultural centers ranging from traditional Egyptian arts, down through traditions of the Nubian empire. Fine dining is much the same offering a wide range. While Aswan may not be the entertainment superstar compared to places like Cairo, it's an ideal spot to wind down, and great for families, or individuals just looking for that moment of sanctuary from their active trip.
