Travel to Egypt Westerners have been visiting Egypt for centuries, but it's still an exotic destination, with all the pros and cons that go along with that. Some people also feel especially sensitive about trips to an Arab country in the current political climate. Here are some suggestions that have been contributed:

  • Be careful with your credit card. Mine was billed by a restaurant after I left Egypt for about 20 times the value of the meal. Real hassle getting credited by Visa.
  • Make sure you go to King Tut's burial chamber, then to Cairo and see what the treasures that were in it with him. Amazing!
  • Egypt is a wonderful country to visit. The Egyptians are very friendly.
  • Don't drink the water. Buy bottled.
  • Pyramids, obviously, are a must see! Be careful of the beggars and people trying to sell things, the postcards they sell are a rip-off and careful when going to ride a camel because they sometimes might take you into the desert and demand more money, harmless really, but be cautious. Sharm El-Sheikh is beautiful. Beaches, nightlife, snorkeling and diving, etc. Don't stay by Na'ama Bay unless you love night life and crowds because it can be loud and the beaches aren't very nice there. Hotels that are farther from the Boardwalk are nicer but also have hotel shuttles to get you places. Taxis are recommended too, really cheap! Luxor is a really neat historical place. Valley of the Kings and Queens, King Tut's Tomb are well worth seeing. Bring lots of water, it gets really hot out in the desert while site-seeing here. Nile River Cruise is what many people do while they go to visit Egypt. It takes you from Cairo to Luxor or elsewhere depending on the cruise you choose. Felluca Ride is on the Nile River, they are pretty cheap to ride these sail boats and it gives an experience that you won't forget! It's great!
  • Some Tips: If you give money to one kid, you'll be giving it to all of them. Bring plenty of water wherever you go. Have a lot of extra "baksheesh" which is tip money, for all the little things you may need it for! Learn the word "no"-la'a and "thank you"-shokran!. You'll need that!
