Kabol Nightlife, Afghanistan

Kabul Afghanistan Night Life

To say the streets roll up with the sunset is a little harsh, but as a tourist, you may feel they do. Kabul offers no night time attractions for tourists. There are no bars or clubs. The streets are usually deserted in the evening and electricity is hit and miss. However, if you have friends in Kabul you might have a good time. Wedding celebrations and family get togethers are the main events for night life in Kabul.

If you have the good fortune of being a guest to one of these parties or celebrations, make sure to bring a gift for the hosts, as this is local custom. As a guest, you will probably be presented with a small trinket in remembrance of your time and a thanks for attending. Handkerchiefs are commonly handed out at these events.

Always remember to respect the customs of the local people. Women should dress in baggy robes and a headscarf. Jeans and tennis shoes are not allowed. There is a curfew in place, so make sure you are aware of the rules. Many hotels lock their doors as curfew begins.

If you would like to eat out in Kabul, there are a few international restaurants. For most locations, you will want to check the UN site to see the latest recommendations. An armed guard should always be used for an escort when traveling to these locations as well. When you are out, it is best to be polite, keep to your party and never look for trouble.

It is best to just enjoy the amenities offered by your hotel at night in Kabul. Make sure you shop around to see if any offer a good time. Most will have internet access available, or you could spend some time sending those electronic postcards. Another option is to bring along a good book and just enjoy a relaxing evening. Save you energy for the sites of Kabul in the daytime.
