Egypt Travel Advice

Egypt has captivated our attention more lately for the revolution that has spread through the country. Egypt has long been regarded as the location of the pyramids and temples of an incredible ancient civilization.

Following the overthrow of Tunisia’s long-time leader, hundreds of thousands of Egyptians demonstrated against President Mubarak’s departure in 2011. This caused a slowdown in tourism to Egypt.

Many years have passed since then and in 216 tourism came back to normal. But later in 2019 and due to covid pandemic, and the airlines closer, the travel sector in Egypt started to slowdown again! As a result many people work in travel decided to change to other carriers. Now in 2022 tourism is getting back to Normal and Egypt receives now about one million travelers a month.

When you arrive, buy a local SIM card and top it up with data.

As previously said, please dress comfortably for the day tour, especially for desert journeys.

If someone provides you anything or a service that you don’t need, remember the Egyptian expression “La Shokran,” which means “No Thank you.”

Things to avoid on your travel to Egypt

Do not drink tap water; do not desecrate, deface, or contaminate any monuments or memorials.

Make sure not to photograph people without their permission; “a simple grin while carrying your camera should be enough to let them know you’re photographing them.”

Instead of giving begging youngsters money, give them pencils or other little gifts, such as those seen above.

Don’t accept free gifts since “nothing comes for free.”

Avoid buying high-end products, such as phones, on the street.

Be sure not to miss any of the excursions; they’re all different.

Avoid public hugging or kissing and other forms of sensuality.

Don’t cross the street alone if you don’t have a tour guide or someone who understands what they’re doing; instead, ask a nearby police officer or a local.

It is recommended to avoid strangers and respond with “La Shokran” if they approach you in an unwelcoming manner.

Back away from street animals (cats and dogs) and avoid interacting with them because the majority of them are unvaccinated. Please clean your hands afterward if you did it.

And rejoice. It is will be one of your favorite trips!’
