travelling alone..

by zhagatho

HI,just want to have idea if ts ok to travel in egypt alone its just because they dont understand english or only arabc they use, want also to go in giza where is the best hostel to stay and the rate for taxi ,,,need help for this thanks n good day.

Negative....they speak English! I was there with a friend a few yrs ago and had no issues with language what-so-ever. Travelling to Egypt alons is a great idea and a tour is not really needed to see and do all of the things that you want to. I stayed in a hotel so I can't help with hostel info. Cabs are really inexpensive especially is you work a deal for part of the day or even the entire day.

Re: travelling alone..

Yes, I think you will find that many people do speak at least some English, certainly in places often visited by tourists. I don't think you will have a problem from that point of view, but if you intend to travel off-the-beaten-path then just take an English-Arabic phrasebook with you.

Can't help with taxis or hostels, as I didn't use them.....but taxis are not expensive. Agree a fare with the driver before you get in.

If you're traveling alone to Egypt for the first time, I'd stick to the well known places. Once you have a hotel (loads of web sites with recommendations - use one with very good ratings only for a first visit) ask the hotel to arrange a taxi for you. They all speak enough English to get by. Arrange for the same taxi to take you back, at a set time. That way they won't try to rip you off because they know they won't get the return fare. If you have an arrangement with a driver, be fair to them and make sure you turn up.

Most people find the problems travelling alone in Egypt relate to observing the local customs rather than the language. Remember it is a muslim country and dress and behave appropriately. Sorry - can't help with the hotel and regarding taxis - you must bargain and agree to the fare before you start.

well am egyption and here is my advice ,
1st about the launguge you'll find people talk english in everywhere you go varied frm people who speak perfect english to people just know the basics , and you'll know who can speak and who can't just by how they look ,,,

2nd about taxies this year you'll find new white taxies (not the old black ones)these white taxies are supplied with digtial gauge so you will just pay what apoear on the screen and plz don't pay more :)
if you have any more questions feel free to ask :)

Travel Tips for Cairo

nile river

by aalayaa

nile river is the longest river on earth, flowing from south to north, passing 7 countries in africa.
only 5% of egypt can be inhabited, this is the area along the nile. so it's often said that egypt is the gift from the nile.
every year the nile floods but since the aswan was built it's never flood anymore.
the elite area in cairo is the one that has view to the nile.

Although it is the first thing...

by omar_samra

Although it is the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Egypt and not the best tip you'd expect from an Egyptian, the Pyramids have to be the top MUST see place in Egypt. I lived in Cairo until the age of 21. I spent 14 years in a school in 'el haram' area (which transaltes to 'the pyramid' in arabic). Every day riding on the school bus to and from school i could see the giant structure, i never got bored of it. However, all this would not prepare you to when you actually get close to it and realise how tiny you really are compared to it. Then you imagine how this could have been built thousands of years ago...this is truly amazing. At around 3 or 4 in the morning after a night out, driving back home listening to my music i always decide to do a tour of Zamalek (my district). Zamalek is an island in the nile and the only thing connecting it to the remainder of the city is a couple of bridges. The streets are lit up, very quite, hardly a soul in the streets, and the nile to your side...it's so relaxing and make's a big change from the bustling days.

The Pyramids Of GIZA

by maxovna

See the pyramids of GIZA - CHEOPS, CHEPHREN and MYCERINUS . The greatest pyramid belongs to PHARAOH CHEOPS . Standing at the foot of the pyramids Napoleon told his soldiers: 'Four thousands years of history face you'.

A little effort goes a long ways

by ct-bound

When entering a store in Egypt, it seems customary to always greet the shopkeeper. If you take the effort to learn even just one phrase in Arabic, it seems to go a long way.

To say 'Hello", it's "Salaam Alikeum", and when you leave, it's "Alikeum al-Salaam".

We found this usually brought out a smile from whomever was working there :)
