Egypt Warnings and Dangers: 366 reviews and 200 photos
Basically, women need to cover up to avoid being hassled by men. Travelling with a guy will also reduce your chances of harrasment, also, wear a wedding ring. We met a few women on our travels who hated Egypt because of hassling by Egyptian men, which is a shame, because Egypt is a beautiful place and the local people you meet if you take the time are some of the friendliest and helpful people in the world. If someone approaches you and offers help, there's a 100% chance he's going to try and rip you off. He'll tell you he has friends in your country etc. etc, just ignore him and keep walking. If you need help, ask a local walking down the street, heaps of Egyptians speak English and most will bend over backwards to help you.
Try the local food, just don't eat anything from a cart on the side of the road, I did and spent two days thinking I was going to die !!
