"Sheesha pipe" Egypt Things to Do Tip by rcsparty

Egypt Things to Do: 1,687 reviews and 2,532 photos


One thing that is a must during your stop in Egypt is renting a Sheesha pipe. Both in Cairo and in Abu Simbel, you could rent a Sheesha pipe for an hour during lunch. The only problem is the flavored tobacco starts to make you somewhat ill, if you smoke too much. I actually enjoyed one of the bus stops, where we shared a pipe with our bus driver and some of his friends, which had non-flavored tobacco. Of course, we didn't smoke it for an hour.
