Traveling to countries like Egypt that are not very developed is not an easy choice for entertainment. If you are planning to travel with your family and being a responsible person, you should follow a protocol. Otherwise, it is highly likely that you will get into some serious trouble.
In Egypt, there are numerous tourist spots, and for each place, a traveler needs to conduct a different behavior. For example, if you are in the Bazars, then a specific level of seriousness and alertness requires ensuring safety. However, if it is a Nile cruise, then a free and frank attitude is the need of the hour.
Here are a few helpful tips that can help you in making your family trip to Egypt a fantastic tour.
When to travel to Egypt?
Egypt is in a temperate region, and visiting there in summers will not be a good idea. You should travel to Egypt in autumn or winter. The warm winter sun can be great therapy for those who would go there from a northern country.
However, even though the winters are the most suitable season, but if you are a loner, then summers can be your favorite season to travel to Egypt as then there will be fewer crowds.
Get a visa on Arrival
The Egyptian tourism department is working day in and day out to ensure the fast development of the tourism industry. Like all other developed states, it has introduced the visa on arrival opportunity.
Now, only for $25, you can get a visa on Arrival at the Egypt airport. The prerequisite for such a fast service is a few travel permit documents that include your E-visa approval and a passport. Now, traveling to Egypt is like ABC.
Plan your destinations
If it is a short trip to Egypt, say for seven days, then these are the places to visit.
- Alexandria (old town)
These four places can bring forth the gist of the Egyptian, both the contemporary and ancient Egyptian cultures. I would not recommend you go against the clock and waste your time and planning after reaching the Airport.
The traveling tips
In Egypt, you cannot roam as if you are roaming in France, the Egyptian authorities take tourists more seriously, which is why the anti-state movements are working to tarnish the state’s reputation. Thus, being a responsible tourist, you should follow the declared safety measures.
You should not wear short or revealing clothes to avoid any inconvenience. Secondly, always carry your travel documents with you.
Follow the buying and tipping culture in Egypt, you should always tip the service providers separately, it would help you in the longer run, or you may get a chance to get acquainted with the locals there.
Lastly, you should not try to travel alone; always visit the sacred place along with some guides so that you may not get lost in the dusty streets of Egypt.
Traveling to Egypt is fun if you are following the right way. Traveling alone sounds more comfortable, and in fact, it is easy, but when you are with your family, you should plan appropriately for the whole trip.
