What to Pack for Egypt - What to Wear in Egypt - Egypt Tours Portal

Many people ask what to pack for Egypt as in order to have a perfect vacation in Egypt, you must pack everything you could ever need so you can fully enjoy the beauty of this holy country. Traveling to Egypt has always been on everyone’s bucket list as you can’t call yourself a true traveler without stepping your feet in the immortal Egyptian soil. You will explore one of the seven wonders of the ancient world the great pyramid of Giza and stare at the face of the great sphinx. Taking a stroll on the oldest market in the Middle East the golden brick road of Khan El Khalili will send you back to the times of ancient tales.

Boarding a Nile Cruise on the lifestream of Egypt between the heavenly lands of Luxor and Aswan where you will listen to the tales of ancient times and behold all hypnotic wonder and beauty of the Valley of the Kings, Karnak temple, Edfu temple, the great Abu Simbel temples and many more. The beaches & shores of the red sea Riviera in the mesmerizing city resort of Hurghada will elevate your horizon and vision of beauty to new levels.

Documents

You should always have copies of your passport, visa, travel insurance, credit card information and traveler’s check information just in case and carry them with you at all times away from the originals. Carry your travel insurance information with you in case you find yourself in a doctor’s office in Egypt, meanwhile, leave copies of these documents with a friend or relative back home in case of loss or theft. If you have any discount ID cards, such as an International Student Identity (ISIC) card, bring these so you can save some of the admissions fees to Egypt’s top historical monuments. You should also carry your hotel & travel agency business card and info at all times.

Money

It is acceptable to bring a major credit or debit card with you to Egypt since many establishments accept payments with plastic, and ATM machines can be found in major cities and tourist sites. You should also Bring cash to exchange for Egyptian pounds, and hoard your smaller bills and coins for tipping, taxi trips and the various Egyptian merchants in need of small change. More and more tours, hotels and shops in Egypt ask for payment in US dollars due to Egypt’s currency shortage, so have a small stash on you. You should keep your cash and valuables in a money bag, especially in Egypt’s tourist areas and overcrowded public transportation.

What to Wear in Egypt

You should pack less than you normally would as you’ll likely be dragging your baggage around frequently during your trip. For those visiting in winter you should pack for a warm-weather like a light jacket, layering shirts and an umbrella, also bring sunglasses and a brimmed hat to shield your face from the sun and bring comfortable lightweight cotton or linen clothing as well as all the typical clothing like a pair of shorts, swimsuit, socks and underwear.

A pair of comfortable open walking shoes or sandals are indispensable for walks through ancient Egyptian archaeological sites. Egypt is a liberal country but Women should bring at least one long-sleeved blouse and head-covering scarf in a case for visits to mosques, you could pack a versatile, slightly dressy outfit for nights out. The most important accessory you should bring is a backpack you can move easily between the site while carrying all of your things.

What to Pack For Egypt – Electronics

You should bring a power bank, portable wifi, a universal travel adapter because you never know, also a small camera or one with a detachable zoom lens. Once you arrive, you can purchase Egyptian phone credits or a SIM card to contact whom you ever choose. You should have a portable travel strip so you can charge anything you want from your phone to your laptop or any others.

Health and Hygiene

It’s important to include a medical kit and hygienic items on your Egypt packing list, since these aren’t always available, especially outside of the tourist sites. A few basic hygiene items that should facilitate your trip to Egypt include antibacterial hand gel, tissues for public restrooms, oral care items, scissors, and tweezers. Your medical kit should include bandages, antibacterial ointment, ibuprofen, Advil, aspirin, and if traveling off the beaten path, Dramamine, anti-diarrhea drugs, and re-hydration salts. Another must-pack is a reliable brand of sunscreen and skincare with an SPF of 30 or higher.
