"TOILET fee and TIPPING" Egypt Favorite Tip by Sambawalk

Egypt General: 631 reviews and 622 photos


Favorite thing: There is no favourite thing about Egypt for me. at least. As for toilet, even the one you see in the pic, someone from nowhere will spot you to go in, and when you come out, he will demand for 1 EGP. Another thing is the tipping practice. It is always my belief that not the tourists' responsibility to tip the Egyptians to support their living. Instead, it is their "GOEVRNMENT" to help its people. How their GOVERNMENT uses the money, it is thier internal affairs.

If you like to be "GENEROUS", definitely nobody will stop you. After all, it is your $$$$.
