"Don't bring your Swiss knife..." Egypt Warnings Or Dangers Tip by swesn

Egypt Warnings and Dangers: 366 reviews and 200 photos


Don't bring your Swiss knife or any pokey stuff while visiting the Egyptian Museum. If you don't intend to pay for the Camera Fee, leave your camera in the hotel too. Otherwise, you'll have to check them in and the Check-in counter is an orgy of screaming tourists checking in/out their cameras & cam-corders. My Swiss knife was discovered in the X-Ray machine and I was told to check it in. Seeing the horrible crowd, I crossed the road and returned to my hotel to dump it there. 15 mins later, I was back at the X-Ray. The fella remembered me, stopped me again, rummaged through my bag and asked me where my Swiss knife was.
