"common sense" Hawkers and Hassle Tip by catherineneill

Hawkers and Hassle, Cairo: 45 reviews and 31 photos

as in any big city you need to be careful. i know its a bit nerdy, but i have a money belt in which i keep passport and money under my clothes, and a small amount in my pocket. It makes for greater peace of mind. Be especially careful in crowded areas, especially if your attention is diverted to an attraction or incident. Some pickpockets work in groups to distract tourists whilst another pickpockets you when you're busy looking !

Address: Cairo
