Cheap, Business Class Flights to Egypt

Egypt, one of the oldest and most culturally rich countries on the planet. The setting for thousands of historical texts and fiction stories alike, Egypt has much to offer. With an estimated population of over 99 million, Egypt is the most populous country in the Arab world. If you’re making a trip to the middle east, or if you’re interested in Arab culture, Egypt cannot be missed.

5 Useful Tips for Traveling to Egypt

Do your homework

While in Egypt, you will experience a saunter through history as you stroll through ancient ruins. Many destinations are equipped with government-accredited tour guides who offer detailed historical accounts. However, Egyptian culture dates back to 7,500 BC; there is a lot of information stored over the millennia. Those who have been to Europe, even historians by trade, often wish they had done a bit more reading prior to their trip. It truly enhances the experience when you know who and what the tour guides are talking about, fitting details into the storyline of data in your head.

Avoiding Crowds = Braving the Sun

If you are the kind of person who strategizes their trip so that they avoid obnoxious crowds of people, you should prepare properly for Egypt. Most crowds escape the sun as much as possible, which means you’ll be in the sun as much as possible. Around noontime, there is very little shade in Egypt. Some think visiting the pyramids during the heat of the day is a good idea since they think the inside of the structure will provide relief. While it provides shade, it does not necessarily provide a temperature drop. Sometimes, crowds know best.

Shopping

Just as Morocco has its Bazaar and Qatar has its Souq Waqif, Egypt has its Khan el-Khalili. With vendors who are less aggressive than those in the former mentioned places, Khan el-Khalili is the go-to shopping center for local Egyptians. With a large variety of high-quality, hand-made items, it has quickly become a tourist trap.

Pro tip: buy an extra suitcase at Khan el-Khalili and stuff all your new souvenirs in it!

Be Water Conscious

First and foremost, Egypt is a deathly hot climate. Make sure you stay hydrated or your trip will quickly turn unhealthy. Secondly, tap water in Egypt is highly chlorinated. Many tourists said it tastes unclean. It’s proven fine for small needs such as brushing your teeth, but it’s in your best interest to purchase water bottles. As we are always on the journey of sustainability, consider purchasing a reusable water bottle. This will also help keep your water cold and refreshing.

Not Pound for Pound

The name of the official Egyptian currency is the pound, not to be confused with the British pound, which is marked at 1 Egyptian pound to 0.048 British pounds of sterling. Alternatively, the Egyptian pound sits at 1 to 0.065 USD. The Egyptian pound is divided into piastres or pts. There are 50-pound notes and 50 piastres; be sure not to confuse the two.

The Best Things To Do in Egypt

Ancient Ruins

Likely the first thing that people associate with Egypt is its ancient ruins. Pyramids, sphinxes, obelisks, these structures date back thousands of years. They’ve sparked questions such as: How were they built? What technology did the ancient people have at their disposal? How have they lasted this long? True wonders of the world, they are a can’t-miss when in Egypt.

Light Shows @ Ancient Ruins

Don’t just go to visit the pyramids during the day. Wait until the sun sets and purchase tickets to a light show. Sound and light technicians project vibrant colors and whimsical music upon the pyramids. This is a jaw-dropping, sometimes tear-jerking experience for travelers of any age.

Go Beyond the Pyramids

While the 454’ Pyramid of Giza is epic, there is still more to see. Add an extra half an hour to your trip and visit Khufu’s Ship in the Khufu Boat Museum. Rediscovered in 1954, on display since the 1980s, this is a full-size vessel that was protected from erosion by the great pyramid since likely 2,500 BC. Definitely worth a look.

Abu Simbel

A village in Egypt that hosts a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Abu Simbel is a global treasure. With Nubean Monuments, The Great Temple of Ramses II, The Temple of Hathor and Nefertari, Abu Simbel has much culture and history to offer. These structures were covered completely in sand, lost to the world, until Jean Louis Burckhardt uncovered them in 1813. Honor his legacy by paying them a visit.

Eat with a Local

Many locals’ favorite classic Egyptian restaurant is El Prince. In the heart of Imbaba, this establishment is open from 4 pm to 4 am, with tables spilling out onto the sidewalk and street. As there are no reservations, lines go back as far as multiple city blocks. While dining, you’ll get a taste of molokiyeh, a leafy vegetable that is a staple of Egyptian cuisine. You’ll also likely taste liver, homemade pita, and likely some sort of caffeinated beverage. With quick service, loud conversations, and cheap prices, El Prince is a necessary stop on your itinerary.

Best Time to Visit Egypt

Many say that the temperature in Egypt between the months of June and August are completely unbearable. Tourists who traveled to Egypt during this time said they did nothing but relax – not by the pool – but in the pool. That being said, Voyagu  recommends you visit Egypt during the spring. The weather is more pleasant, the crowds are less, and the hotel prices are cheaper (they are most expensive from December to February).
