Egypt is a religious country; therefore
you must consider dressing based on
Ideal clothing for
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.
Foreigners should dress properly before entering mosques and churches
and females should cover their hair.
Ideal, and least, clothing for women
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. Temperature in winter
time fall to as low as 5 C but you can experience summer heat in some
days, so always watch temperature forecasts and adapt yourself to
any unexpected weather.
