    What’s the most important thing in Ramadan, which is forbidden to touch our lips from sunrise until sunset? You guessed it – Food! As we all know, we have only two main occasions, in our limited 9-hour span, when we can spoil ourselves with an overload of food and drinks: Iftar & Sohour. One of the most famous forms of celebration for the latter is the widespread tents, especially the extravagant ones that we witness every year, during this time, at various hotels. So, let’s take a look at some of these places that you have to visit before the holy month is up!

    Located at the Nile Ritz-Carlton’s spacious garden, the hotel’s Ramadan tent, Wust El Balad, combines a contemporary and oriental ambience, where you can enjoy your favourite Sohour dish, sip a refreshing drink, and just enjoy your time with friends and family. You can also watch your favourite series, in HD quality, on the gigantic screens, while resting on some very comfortable white leather couches, surrounded by an array of colourful pillows, tent covers, lanterns, and wallpaper. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of Events Plus Egypt, Promovision, and Event House, you can expect a memorable Ramadan experience at a whole new level.
