It is this wonderful time of the year, and a personal favorite to me; because when December arrives, it brings along the wonderful lights of Christmas. Most of the places are either beautifully lit up with a gigantic Christmas tree or even a mini one for small places, what matters is, anywhere you go, you can feel that December spirit! Whether you are a winter lover or not, this article will guide you through where to go during this month, and for winter haters, we’ll try and keep you warm.
1- Capital business park
Capital business park in 6th of October has a variety of cafes and restaurant, which not only serves delicious food but most of them serves blankets as well so you can enjoy the weather outdoors. But honestly, restaurants aren’t the only attraction force here, but also their humongous Christmas tree that you can actually walk inside of!
The place is suitable for a group hang out, a family night or a date.
2- Villa Belle Époque
Villa Belle Époque is a small but very cozy hotel in Maadi, its restaurant makes the perfect go to for a romantic dinner. You’ll also be enjoying a pool/ garden view during your meal. So if you’re looking to take your partner out on Christmas Eve, you better hurry and reserve now!
3- Laser tag
Now, if you’re not the type to sit in a place and is eager to let out some energy in a fun way, then adrenaline laser tag is your way to that! Laser tag is a new fun experience, you can find it in Dandy mall. The place is impressively decorated, and suitable for big groups as they divide into two teams and you compete on two different missions.
Galleria40 is quite similar to Capital business park, same attractions force. What makes it special at the moment is that Dara’s ice cream had recently opened its first branch in Galleria. I know you’ll probably wonder who the heck would want to have ice cream in this cold! Well, ask the really long line that stands at Dara’s, awaiting to be served. Yep, a line … for an ice cream, in December; because it is that good!
5- Andrea New Giza
If you’re a foodaholic, then you probably know Andrea. And if you don’t, then it is a must try! Their chicken is top notch, and so is their breakfast. The food is one thing, the location itself is another, it’s located on a hill which makes the weather even better and the view, an incredible one.
It’s suitable for group hang-outs, family nights and dates.
Grand Egyptian Museum Granted Three ISO Certificates Reflecting Its Excellence
Another reason to be proud of our Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), as if we needed more reasons!
Major General Atef Moftah, General Supervisor of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), received on behalf of the museum two ISO certificates: a certificate of accreditation of international standards for environmental management systems (ISO 14001: 2015) and certification of the international standard specifications for the quality management systems (ISO9001: 2015).
Engineer Mohamed Habib, General Manager of OSS Middle East and Dr. Tarek Rizk, consultant of OSS Middle East and witnessed by Dr. Hussein Kamal, were the ones to present the certificated in the presence of General Director of the GEM Conservation Center, Dr. Eissa Zidan, Director of Executive Affairs of GEM Conservation and Transportation, and Dr. Elshimaa Eid, Head of Health and Safety at GEM.
This brings the total of certificated that the museum has been awarded to three, as the museum obtained the ISO certificate for occupational safety and health last September.
It’s also worth mentioning that this makes the GEM the only museum regionally and internationally to obtain three ISO certificates in less than 60 days!
These certificates resemble the positive impact that the museum have on the area and its surroundings, it also positions the museum as a sustainable and environmental museum.
Diving & Scuba Activities to Resume in Parts of South Sinai
As of December, diving and scuba activities for yachts on cruises will resume in six nature reserve diving sites in South Sinai, according to a statement made by Egypt’s Ministry of Environment.
The diving sites include: the Temple, North Laguna, South Laguna, White Island, Electricity, and Map.
The decision by Egypt’s Environmental Affairs Agency follows the cessation of diving activities that lasted for nine months, in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
Egypt’s health ministry announced Wednesday that South Sinai, Minya, Suez and Ismailia have recently seen a drop in infection rates, unlike Cairo and Alexandria.
According to the statement, “These sites were chosen after carrying out a number of field studies and scientific surveys, and after ensuring that they are distinguished by all the appropriate environmental requirements for diving sites to achieve the enjoyment of those involved in diving activities,” quoting Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, these floating hotels obtained the certificates for meeting the health and safety requirements set out by the Egyptian government and the World Health Organization (WHO).
