14 Egypt Travel Hints & Tips You Should Know Before Visiting Egypt

Egypt Travel Hints - Trips In Egypt

1- If you want to get a taxi to transfer you from a place to another, let the hotel receptionist pick one for you as they have assigned taxi drivers and they know everything about them. But if you want to depend on yourself in everything and get a taxi by yourself, you must do two things. First, you have to tell the hotel about all of your plans, the places you are planning to go to, and the exact time you want to get back to the hotel so that if you got lost or something like that, it gets easier for them to find you, Second, you must have a GPS with you in order to know where you are exactly and where the taxi driver is heading to.

2- You need to put in mind that Egypt is mainly a Muslim country and you need to respect their faith so if you would like to visit some Islamic attractions in Egypt, you need to wear proper clothes and you shouldn’t kiss your partner in public, and finally try to be more conservative in your attitude as it will help you a lot during your tour.

3- If you want to know Egypt, don’t only rely on books & photos because those who relied only on books before, have left Egypt very disappointed as they didn’t get what they actually believed. Egypt has some majestic tourist sites and unparallel culture and you have to know that things change over time and Egypt in pictures is somehow different from reality so all of what you have to put in mind is that you will get really amazed after visiting the ancient & modern landmarks which represent the true meaning of uniqueness.

4- If you would like to cross-roads in Egypt, keep in mind that Egyptians drive on the right and pay special care while being in Cairo as it is much busier than the other Egyptian countries.

5- Drink a lot of water as it is easy to get dehydrated while touring Egypt, so try to always carry a bottle of water with you and keep buying other bottles during your tours, they are cheap and you also have to put in mind that you should never drink from the tap water as it is not safe at all.

6- Try to say “Shokran” to anyone who offers help to you not “Thank you” as they will truly appreciate it.

7- If you felt that someone tries to follow you or even keeps being too pushy, try to tell tourist police wherever you are as you will find them everywhere, ready to help you anytime you need help and they will deal with that person.

8- Make sure that you carry Egyptian currency with you, which is the Egyptian pound as the majority of the Egyptian stores deal with the Egyptian currency or even to be able to enter some tourist sites. If you forgot to transfer your money at home, don’t worry as you will be able to transfer your money at the airport and it is easy and more helpful. For example, the USD has much more value in the Egyptian pound in Egypt than any other country. You can also hold a credit card with you if you don’t like holding a lot of cash with you.

9- Make sure that you carry a small Aid-Kit with you that holds all of your medicine and some safety pins, plasters and so. If you carry medicine, make sure that you carry prescriptions from your doctor with the exact titles of your medicine so that you don’t have any problem at the airport with your luggage inspection.

10- Don’t carry all of your eggs on one basket, which means that you need to keep your money away from the sight and put your Egyptian pounds together so that it gets easier for you to buy the things you need without getting confused.

11- Avoid high heels upon your tours to the Egyptian sights and wear comfortable footwear in order not getting tired as you will have to walk for long distances and you may not find your high heel suitable on the Egyptian streets at all.

12- While visiting the Egyptian historical sites, you have to respect the rules of the place you are visiting, for example, when you visit an Egyptian Mosque, you have to take your shoes off, and if you were required not to use a flashlight upon visiting the Egyptian monuments, then don’t. There is a reason behind this as the flashlight may cause serious damage to some artifacts so for some places, it is totally forbidden.

13- If you have too much baggage with you, try not to hold all of them while visiting the Egyptian sites and just leave them at your hotel. Many hotels in Egypt offer such services.

14- If you like riding boats, felucca, and things like that to discover the internal beauty of Egypt then Egypt Nile cruise packages will be your gate to heaven in the land of pharaohs. You have to know that the 5* Nile cruises in Egypt are the best as they offer private cabins with all the necessary services including the special events that you can witness while boarding a Nile Cruise.
