Is Egypt Safe in 2024?

Guide For Exploring Egypt

Okay, so we've all heard about Egypt's ups and downs over the past few years, but guess what? Despite what you might've seen in the news, tourists are reporting things differently when they're visiting!

 

In fact, there was an increase in the number of tourists in the first 40 days of 2024 by five percent compared to the same period in 2023.

The Egyptian government and tourism sector have worked together to make the country a more welcoming and secure destination for tourists, who are eager to learn about Egypt's rich history and experience its modern culture.

 

More than ever before, now is the perfect moment to immerse yourself in Egypt's warm hospitality and fascinating history. To help you have a safe and unforgettable trip to the land of the Pharaohs, we offer some suggestions.


Gaining insight into the present safety environment

Nowhere in the world is 100% safe. Forget what you've heard about Egypt being sketchy. Major tourist spots are as safe as your favorite hangouts back home. Tight security measures are in place, so you can snap your Insta-worthy pics with peace of mind.

You can visit ancient sites like the Pyramids of Giza (not to be confused with Gaza), Luxor, and Aswan without worrying about safety because of the high level of safety measures.

 

Pick-pocketing continues to be a concern.  Keep your eyes peeled and your bags close. But honestly, you're more likely to get hustled by aggressive street vendors trying to sell you souvenirs.


Exploring Culture: Going Beyond Western Preconceptions

Because of its location at the crossroads of two continents, Egypt is home to a fascinating mashup of civilizations. Be respectful of local traditions and keep an open mind during your stay; they can be different from your own.


Traveling Securely: Transportation

A variety of transportation choices, such as ride sharing and metered taxis, are available in Cairo and neighboring cities. Taxis should always have their meters turned on, or at least have a prearranged fare, to avoid any confusion.


Etiquette: Showing Respect for Regional Customs

Particularly in places of worship, and marketplaces, people expect proper modest attire. Wear loose-fitting garments that cover your shoulders and knees and make use of lightweight, airy fabrics, such as linen, to avoid overheating.


Open Expressions of Love

Egypt frowns at PDA. No public displays of affection to avoid  accidentally being insensitive and disrespecting this cultural standard.


The Top Things to Do in 2024

There are a myriad of historical places and cultural activities to partake in throughout Egypt. Whether you're interested in the lively Cairo bazaars or the majestic temples of Karnak and Abu Simbel, Egypt has something for every kind of traveler. Take advantage of this once-in-a lifetime opportunity to see Egypt's ancient sites  by cruising the Nile River.


Maintaining Good Health in Egypt

Stay hydrated, eat smart, and pack a mini health kit just in case. Oh, and nope, don't drink the tap water. Stick to the bottled stuff to keep those tummy troubles at bay
