"Victory Park" Al Ubayyid Nightlife Tip by mafi_moya
Al Ubayyid Nightlife: 2 reviews and 1 photos
Victory Park, in the centre of town, gets its name from a battle during the Mahdist uprising (see must-see activities). Looking at the stalls, seats and rides in the park they seem to date from the battle itself! Its delapitated state belies its status as the premier night time hang out in El Obeid.
Families, teenagers, old people, all hang out here - sipping tea, smoking sheesha, chatting, all the usual Sudanese things. There is a half hearted attempt at a funfair for kids, with a train ride and merry-go-round and a candyfloss stall. With loud music and lively people it can sometimes be a fun night out, but you have to make your own entertainment.
Directions: East of the souk, in front of the main mosque and cathedral.
Theme: Family Spot
