Ideal clothing for men
this fact. Watch Egyptians as they dress and imitate them. Women, in particular, should dress modestly even in summer.

But modesty doesn't mean veiling every spot of your body … just avoid teenie-weenie garments. Modesty would not only avoid people from gazing at you, but would also let you avoid any possible harassment and indicate a respect for the traditions of the country.

Temperatures in summer sometimes rise to above 45 C so you should dress sensibly. Use T-Shirts, hats, sunglasses and sunblock in summer. Desert areas are cold at night even in summer.
