When traveling, you should respect Egypt as you would your own country because it is one of the oldest nations on the planet, second only to China. The sights to see, the environment, and the enormous Pyramids that have stood almost since the dawn of civilization should all be respected, but a tourist must also pay attention to every piece of advice. The dos and don’ts when visiting magical Egypt are known by any reputable travel operator and should be followed to guarantee you enjoy your time there.
Dos and Don’ts for travelers to mystical Egypt.
One of the things to do is clear. Enjoy yourself responsibly. Therefore, it is usually preferable to join a guided tour rather than set out on your own. However, if you must, speak to your hotel management first and have them write down the addresses of the places you wish to visit in Arabic, which includes Egyptian Arabic, the country’s official language.
To act as though you speak the language when you don’t is a definite no-no when visiting mysterious Egypt. By expressing something strange, you could accidentally offend someone. Many of these people speak rudimentary English; forcefully saying “No, thank you” and relocating away. The Remaining invites unwanted bartering or inadvertent harassment.
Do respect every tourist attraction when you visit mysterious Egypt. Given their antiquity, several of the artworks on display could be damaged by strong halogen lights or flashes from cameras. Do not bring that equipment if you are instructed not to. You can be asked to leave your current residence and be accused of vandalism or worse.
Everyone is typically kept content by offering inexpensive photographs and postcards. If you want a personal photograph, get one of these cameras to bring with you into the tombs and close to the murals. Another suggestion is to bring a cheap, non-halogen lamp because the light coming through the windows is purposely muted to protect the antiques.
Another must-do when visiting mysterious Egypt is to stock up on bottled water at your hotel and be well-hydrated. Do not consume tap water. It is acceptable for oral hygiene and even for ablutions, but ingesting it is asking for trouble. It’s not a good idea to invite a severe stomach ache to settle in and spend your vacation trying to get rid of it. Additionally, while bottled water is much more expensive on tours, it is more affordable to purchase it at your accommodation.
Before leaving your native country, you should take care of the major do’s and don’ts when visiting magical Egypt (Egypten, as my Danish friends say). A few weeks prior to your trip, make sure you have received all the recommended vaccines so your immunity can develop.
There is no practical need to go on the trip of a lifetime only to spend a significant portion of it sick because some immunizations can make you sick. If you opt to get shots a day before you travel, there is a strong possibility they won’t be prepared to protect you from whatever they are intended to. Vaccinations require time to become accustomed in your body.
