Planning a trip to Egypt? Well then, a few tips won`t go awry. Visiting an arid desert area always needs more caution.
Always acclimatise yourself to the weather there. It takes a few days to adjust to the desert.
Don`t venture out into the sunlight. Stay in the shade as much as possible.
If you do experience a sandstorm, stay put in your car or hotel. Do not venture out into the storm.
Always be careful of what you eat. It`s very easy to get an upset stomach in the desert.
Always make sure your bedding is a few feet off the ground. Scorpions, snakes and poisonous spiders are commonly found in deserts.
What to wear:
Egypt is an old fashioned conservative country. Tourists need to be careful about what they wear there.
Wear cotton if you`re visiting in summer. Wear layers of clothing in winter. Synthetics don`t really help. Loose flowing garments are the best.
Always keep your head and the back of your neck covered in desert areas. It helps prevent a heat stroke.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Or you could have a tough time walking around Egypt.
Ensure you have sunglasses and plenty of drinking water.
