Ramadan is the time of the year where friends and families gather for the festive vibes of iftar, sohour, and everything in between. If you’re short of ideas to while away the hours before suhour; here are 4 fun ways to spend your Ramadan evenings.

What better way to have some quality time with family and friends than with the time-honored tradition of a felucca ride along the Nile, where you can forget about life’s worries while listening to music and gazing at the city skyline.
This all-round fun way of spending Ramadan evenings won’t break the bank, and what could be better than enjoying a couple of hours with some friends and family before a tasty suhoor when it’s past midnight?

Bubble Football will be the highlight of this Ramadan as people can harmlessly crash into each other while respecting social distancing precautions. Players are encased in large body-size bubbles for a fun take on the much-loved game of football, but with a cool twist. It’s a great, fun way to bond during Ramadan.
Inexpensive and wildly entertaining, people have fun burning off a little bit of their iftar by kicking a football, bumping into one another (safely, while maintaining distancing guidelines), and rolling around.
All ages can join in on the fun as it’s an activity that will bring together family and friends for an adrenaline rush and a few laughs for half an hour.

Horseback riding during Ramadan evenings alongside the Great Pyramids will add a special feel to this spiritual month. You can relax by enjoying a horseback riding experience in this majestic setting.
Enjoy the cool evening breeze, casual conversation with friends and family, and that special Ramadan evening vibe before diving into a delicious suhoor. What else could one ask for when it comes to some peace and calm this Ramadan?

Sandboarding has become quite a popular activity with families flocking to Fayoum and the Western Desert to ride the dunes. But why not sandboard during the cool Ramadan evenings as well?
Deserts won’t be too hot or too cold, the weather will be just right for learning this new skill. Evenings will be the perfect time to enjoy this activity, so change-up your Ramadan evening routine and try something different for a change.
