"Arabic numbers - do your homework" Egypt Local Custom Tip by AR76

Egypt Local Customs: 223 reviews and 149 photos

  From 0 to 15 in Arabic
by AR76

It might be handy to learn how to write/read arabic numbers (0-9 will do). Things like phone numbers and seat/coach numbers on train tickets, for example, are often printed in arabic numbers only. They are very easy to remember! Contrary to arabic letters, numbers are written from left to right.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
