"Obviously, Egypt is a Muslim..." Egypt Local Custom Tip by DaKoyote

Egypt Local Customs: 223 reviews and 149 photos

Obviously, Egypt is a Muslim state and many of the women are dressed fully in veils and what have you...but women, you don't need to worry. You do not need to do any of this...the Egyptians know you are tourists and they welcome you.
Tipping...everyone that comes near you will want a tip...don't let everyone help you...or you'll spend more time and money on tipping people than you will on your whole trip!!
