Coming to Egypt

Post by Frater0082 »

Somewhere in the near near future I plan to come to Egypt. I feel like I should it would be a daring thing to do but I'm willing to do it. What are some things that I need to look out for and how much money should I carry?

Why do you think it will be a daring thing to do?

When you ask '...What are some things that I need to look out for...' , can you be more precise about 'things' please.

You obviously have some concerns and in order for others to be able to best help you, you perhaps need to be a bit more specific.

How much money? That depends on what your plans are, so we can only give a guide on that if we know more about your plans. It is however, rather like the question 'How long is a piece of string?' !

Frater very pleased that you are going to visit Egypt but as Hepzibah says more details are required before anyone can help with your plans.
How long are you planning to stay?
Where do you want to visit, Cairo, Aswan, Luxor?
Where are you going to stay, a five star hotel or cheap hostel?
Actually not a very daring thing to do millions visit Egypt every year without incident. I was speaking to a young American girl the other day who was visiting here alone and having a wonderful time.
Your visa to enter Egypt is 25 dollars which lasts one month apart from that I'm afraid can't be much more help on the cost front because of the lack of specific details.

The general rule of thumb regarding money is, once you have decided on a budget, double it! With packing clothes, it is halve it!

Experience has shown me this is pretty true.

If you are thinking of visiting Luxor Frater0082, my friend and I will be quite happy to show you around the city. If you need a trip to the Temples and Tombs, my taxi driver speaks good English and will take good care of you with no overcharging or visits to his family. :lol: All you need do is PM me on here with the time and hotel.

I think it is fair to say that Egypt has changed a lot, and not at all, since your last visit. :a80:

That is always the best policy in my mind Frater. :up

Don't believe a thing they tell you down here, it's all a bit topsy turvy truth be told..... ;)

What is your list of priorities regarding the sites and places to visit. ?
