Egypt is a safe country to visit with a notable low crime rate, tourist attractions are well secured and there is no common negative attitude towards foreigners, with some sensible precautions and preparations you will feel at home and as safe as you’ll ever be.
The best time to visit Egypt is in autumn (September – November) and spring (February – April). The weather is relatively cold from December to January, except in the south, where winter is very mild. Sometimes summer should be avoided for climatic reasons. Cairo is hot and attractive in most of June through August, and most residents spend their holidays during this period, if possible. Upper Egypt and even the Red Sea coast can be uncomfortably hot during the summer.
There are a lot of things to do for a foreign traveler in Egypt. Apart from visiting and seeing ancient Egyptian temples and ancient artifacts in ancient Egypt, there is also plenty to see inside each city. In fact, every city in Egypt has its own charm of the things you see through its history, culture, activities, and people who are often different from their nature from people from other parts of Egypt. Cairo, for example, has a lot to do and see. Besides ancient Egyptian history, there is the history of the Romans, Greeks, Byzantine Empire, Islamic Empire, Ottomans and finally the modern history of Egypt.
You can buy most things in Egypt but there are some things that you should bring with you if you want, such as sunscreen, a full hat to protect your face from the sun, a lock for your luggage and any medications you take except for course banned drugs. Egyptian pharmacies are very good, but the drug may be subject to names unknown to you. A pair of comfortable walking shoes is indispensable for wandering the ancient Egyptian archaeological sites. Do not forget that the most important thing to bring with you is the camera in order to take memorable pictures. Good luck and we hope you enjoy your trip and have a great time.
Many women travel alone to Egypt and find that they are safe. The tourism and military police are always close to all tourist places, and the Egyptians themselves are generally safe and trying to protect individual travelers. On the whole, Egypt is safer for individual travelers in more places like Greece, Italy or Spain. Please make sure to take the same precautions you would take anywhere else and do not tend to walk in the deserted areas alone: take a taxi to your residence! You may receive some invitations, all of which are innocent, that doesn’t accept any of these from strangers.
