What you should packing while traveling to Egypt ?

Here is another repeated question that is usually asked by many travelers and simply put, you should bring with you only the necessary personal items. Among the items that you shouldn’t forget is your medicine with prescriptions from your doctor with the exact names of your medicine, your suitable clothes that will be determined based on the time you are going to visit Egypt in “Summer, Spring, Autumn, or Winter??”,

you can also bring extra comfortable shoes with you like high heels for women is not recommended at all since you will spend the whole day touring around the ancient Egyptian landmarks and sightseeing. Men should also avoid wearing dress shoes and bring tennis shoes which will be much better at walking. You shouldn’t also forget to bring your phone, charger, camera, personal items, etc. Rather than this, you will find everything in Egypt with very tempting prices and that will let you avoid extra weight at the airport upon your arrival not to carry many bags with you.
