"Bring appropriate clothes" Clothes Tip by antiphonos

Clothes, Cairo: 27 reviews and 23 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Men and Women should respect the local culture by dressing appropriately: don't wear shorts except in a resort, no tanktops. A good outfit for both men and women would be a t-shirt, pants (cotton or linen is best) and comfortable shoes...otherwise, some people might be offended or not take you seriously... or if you're a woman, get some unwanted attention. If you don't think it's a big deal, look at the Egyptians. They're not wearing shorts. Also, women should bring a pullover and a scarf for mosque tours, which i highly recommend!
