Planning Your Visit

  • There is so much political unrest in Egypt.  Is it safe to go there?

    Terrorists continue to plan attacks in Egypt. Foreigners could be targeted in tourist resorts or other locations frequented by foreigners. Be aware of your surroundings at all times and use heightened caution to avoid unsafe situations.

  • Should I follow a specific dress code here?

    Egypt is an Islamic country. For woman, it's generally best to dress modestly, keeping knees and shoulders covered and not to wear figure hugging clothing. Women visiting religious sites are advised to cover their hair and neck with a scarf and take shoes off if required. Men can wear shorts and a normal style t-shirt.

  • Much of Egypt is desert -- how do I travel across this?

    Four-wheel drive vehicles are really the only way and be prepared for a bumpy ride. Perhaps take anti-nausea tablets or any other remedy you use to prevent travel sickness.
