Tips For Traveling Responsibly

The best time to visit Egypt depends on where you want to go. Generally speaking, winter (December to February) is the tourist high season and summer (June to August) is the low season in all parts of the country except on the coasts, and to a lesser degree in Cairo.

Weather-wise, June to August is unbearable almost anywhere south of Cairo, especially around Luxor and Aswan, where daytime temperatures soar up to 40°C. Summer in Cairo is almost as hot.

When visiting somewhere such as Luxor, winter is easily the most comfortable time. Cairo isn’t quite as pleasant, with often overcast skies and chilly evenings, while up on the Mediterranean coast Alexandria is subject to frequent downpours resulting in flooded, muddy streets. Even Sinai’s beaches are a little too chilly for sunbathing in January.

The happiest compromise for an all-Egypt trip is to visit in spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November).

There is very little that you might need and won’t be able to find in Egypt. That said, you may not have the same degree of choice as at home.

So bring sunglasses, a torch (flashlight), sunscreen and a hat. If you’re a light sleeper you may also want to bring earplugs.

If you are visiting during winter, a sweater or light jacket is necessary for evenings, especially in desert areas.

Here’re the most important things you should bring it with you.
Hats, Sunglasses, Sunscreen, Comfortable walking shoes, Power Adapters, Medication, Camera, Alcoholic Beverages.

  • Wear a wedding ring. Generally, Egyptian men seem to have more respect for a married woman.
  • If you are traveling with a man, it is better to say you’re married rather than ‘just friends’.
  • Avoid direct eye contact with an Egyptian man unless you know him well; dark sunglasses help, mirrored ones are even better.
  • Try not to respond to an obnoxious comment from a man – act as if you didn’t hear it.
  • Be careful in crowds and other situations where you are crammed between people as it is not unusual for crude things to happen behind you.
  • Keep your distance. Remember that even innocent, friendly talk can be misconstrued as flirtation by men unused to close interaction with women. Ditto for any physical contact.

  • Be wary when horse or camel riding, especially at touristy places. It’s not unknown for a guy to ride close to you and grab your horse, among other things. Riding with an unknown man on a horse or camel should be avoided.
  • You may find it handy to learn Arabic for ‘don’t touch me’ (la’ tilmasni). Also worth memorizing is ihtirim nafsak (literally ‘behave yourself’) or haasib eedak (watch your hand). Swearing at would-be Romeos will only make matters worse.
  • If you do get groped, don’t expect people to be ashamed or apologize if you call them out. Most guys will just sort of stare at you blankly and wander away. So all the advice to ignore, ignore, ignore is wiser – you won’t be standing there with your adrenaline running, shouting and feeling like an idiot.
  • Being befriended by an Egyptian woman is a great way to learn more about life in Egypt and, at the same time, have someone nonthreatening to guide you around. Getting to know an Egyptian woman is, however, easier said than done. All we can say is seize on whatever opportunities you get.

  • Learn the language. Although English is widely spoken as a second language in Egypt, make an effort to learn a bit of Arabic. Knowing the basic greetings will win the respect of locals, and a firm command of the numbers will give you some bargaining power.
  • Sail the Nile. Until recently feluccas were the only sail-powered option, but there are now a growing number of cruises, most of them operating between Esna and Aswan.
  • Rent a bike. The opening of the bridge across the Nile in Luxor has seen a huge rise in the number of coaches and taxis on the West Bank, with all the usual issues of pollution. But bikes are easy to rent on both sides of the river and slow traveling gives a different perspective on the country you pass through.
  • Don’t bribe guards. Do give them a present if you want – they are paid so little that any amount will be welcome. But don’t exploit your economic superiority by bribing them to let you do things you shouldn’t do.
  • Dress conservatively. Rural areas in the deserts are home to very conservative communities that do not see many travelers. Be cautious with revealing dress, showing affection in public and any behavior that may offend sensibilities.

* Shoes must be removed before entering a mosque and there are often a shoe rack and shoe guardian at the door for this purpose.

* It is also essential that proper clothing is worn when entering a mosque – people wearing shorts or sleeveless T-shirts may be refused admission or offered a shawl to cover up with.
