  Sunset over the Nile - Luxor
by MikeBird

If you want to watch the sunset over the Nile with a drink from the bar and a terrific view over the rest of Cairo then try the rooftop Bar at the Nile Hilton Hotel. This is the older of the two Hiltons but I understand it has had a makeover. My kids enjoyed going up there for a Mango juice and watching the sun slowly sink below the horizon. They also liked the big screen playing the latest music videos. The entry is free but the drinks are quite pricey. One night we went there was a wedding party on later and we couldnt stay long so pick your nights.

By the way - the photo was taken in Luxor - it was the only sunset picture I had!
