"Riding Trains and Walking Around" Egypt Local Custom Tip by Abeo
Egypt Local Customs: 225 reviews and 149 photos
I had read a bevy of travelers books which went on at length about women travelers being hassled in Egypt. Of course, the primary rule is- respect and awareness. Dress and behave appropriate to your surroundings and you won't have any problems at all. I went sans fake wedding ring and received no ill treatment whatsoever. I rode the train, in both the women's car by myself and the men's car with a male friend without a problem. Don't fall pray to the hype. Women...be respectful, be yourself...and don't worry about all that nonsense. You won't suffer any maltreatment for being a solo traveler or being single and in the company of men.
