"Because of the prevalance of..." Egypt Local Custom Tip by VinceK

Egypt Local Customs: 225 reviews and 149 photos

Because of the prevalance of the tourist industry in Egypt, I feel that visitors can sometimes forget that Egypt is a predominantly Muslim country, and neglect to act appropriately. This is not so much of a problem in the tourist areas, but if a tourist wants to wander 'off the beaten path' into 'non-tourit' areas or places in Upper Egypt, relatively modest dress and respectful behavior can go a long way toward making the visit a pleasant one.
