5 Activities to Do in Sham El-Nasim If You Are Stuck at Home



We know how crowded Egypt can get during the Sham El-Nasim break, some flee the capital to spend a couple of days by the sea, some invade parks to enjoy a picnic under Cairo sun with Sham El-Nasim special food; and some of us are introverts who wouldn’t appreciate going out during occasions; and we, at WhatsUp Cairo, understand the introverted souls and the tired ones who would rather to just chill at home.

Here is a list of things you can do in Sham El-Nasim, in case you are staying home

-Binge Watch TV Series:

We have those days we are torn between being productive adults or just curl into our beds and binge watch all the good series out there. This sham ElNasim you can take Netflix and chill literally; set the mood right, so make up your bed, prepare snacks (by snacks we also mean some sham elnasim famous treats), and decide on what you are going to binge watch.

If you are not into series that much, you can check out our movie guide for some good recommendation.


Sham ElNasim day off is a legit excuse to be as lazy as you can be. You have a whole day to spend some time with yourself and relax. You can start to read a new book you have always wanted to pick up or finish the one you had no time for. You can also unleash your inner artist and color up some eggs, which is a very important Sham ElNasim tradition.  And of course, Sham Elnasim day is perfect for sleeping for as long as you please without worrying about your alarm, deadlines or your boss.

-Family Gatherings:

For those who are always absent from family gatherings due to work overload and deadlines, Sham ElNasim is a chance to catch up with all your favorite family members and spend some quality time with them. Sham El-Nasim is for family gatherings anyways.


For our lovely moving junkies out there and the ones who don’t really exercise claiming they are always busy, Sham elNasim is a chance to hit the gym and work those muscles. You can also go for a morning run around your block.


This is for party animals who are always putting up with roles as responsible adults and ditch lots of awesome parties for the sake of work and late night shifts; actually, this is for everyone, even the introverts who would like a little bit of a change. Cairo is witness lots of cool gigs all around and it is a chance to let go and party hard like there is no tomorrow.

You can check out our Events calendar and go to whatever party you like
