Vacation in Egypt

Vacation in Egypt - TRAVEL TIPS WHILE IN EGYPT Clothing- Wear light and absorbent clothing. Sunhats and scarves serve to protect your head from the strong sun. Dress modestly especially when visiting the monuments and religious places. Women must avoid sleeveless clothing and shorts/ short skirts. Being an Islamic country, certain norms and practices must be accepted and respected. Trousers are best for monuments that involve climbing steep stairways. Transport- Travel is best arranged through the hotel/ tour operator. The Rail system is good but very crowded. Road transport can be arranged. Taxis may not all be licensed so follow the color coded license plates. If you hire a felucca on the Nile, make sure you get a good captain so that you don’t get taken for a ‘ride’!
