smoking shisha is every where, but to try GOOD one , i advise easly you can take a taxi in Cairo to Khalili market and ask for ( WALEY EL NEAM cofee shop ) or ( EL FISHAWY cofee shop) they offer very good shisha, nice flavor and good prices, if you prefer luxurious places then in the same area of Khalili market ask for Naguib Mahfouz Coffee shop and there is bit more expensive.

In aswan just go to the railway station street which is also the entrance of the Aswan Bazaar , there are so many cofee shops there one next to other where you can try the Shisha

in general shisha have many falvors, there is Regular Tobacco shisha, there is also fruit flavored ones, personally i like so much the Apple Tobacco shisha, try it , it is so nice

have fun and enjoy your trip :)

you are welcome any time, forgot to mention prices so in the cofee shops they do not over charge you, so for a regular tobacco shisha to smoke, it is max 2 egyptian pounds per the WHOLE shisha, if he changed the tobacco it mean another 2 egyptian pounds

for flavored tobacco not more than 3 pounds if in Aswan and not more than 4 pounds if in Khalili bazaar

wish you great time

Is it ok for foreign women to smoke? I'd like to try it, but if it is offensive, I definitely won't do it.

it is not at all offensive as long as you are in a nice place and respectable or known modern cofee shop like any one in Khalili market or near hotels and so on or in Luxor and Aswan

try it
