~ Summer Clothing Needed All Year Round ~

Luggage and bags: A rucksack is needed for any trips or excursions to pack all your everyday needs such as water, sun tan lotions, aspirin/imodium, Towels, camera and money.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Lots of Summer clothing is needed, swim suits, bikinis, shorts, t-shirts, sandals and flip flops. Long trousers and long sleeved tops are needed if you are visiting holy places such as Mosques or monastries. In the winter months i would advise to take a light jacket for the evenings as it does get a little bit chilly as you are by the sea. However during the day it is always very warm sun bathing weather.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Toiletries are widely available allover Sharm and are very cheap compared to England. You can buy them from the local pharmacies or supermarkets.

Photo Equipment: A good camera is needed for Sharm, there lots of beautiful photo opportunities and fabulous sunsets to get some excellent photos. Also an underwater camera is ideal for any boat trips or snorkelling/diving.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: A good pair of sensible shoes is needed for any excursions you do where you will be walking in the heat. Also sunhats/sun glasses are needed as the heat in Egypt can become very hot.

Miscellaneous: I would advise buying some hand sanitiser spray or gel as the money in Egypt is filthy, i have heard it is the money that can cause a bad tummy and not the food or climate like most people think. Therefore i always carry a bottle for when i cannot wash my hands.
Also take packets of tissues with you as not all public places have it in the toilets.
