Egypt travel: The guide to women traveling alone

Egypt is such a fascinating country that one must not deprive himself or herself a trip just because he or she does not have a company. If you want to enjoy an Egypt travel, then you can very well travel solo! But if you are a woman, then here is a small guideline chalked out for your safety and convenience:

I. Stick to the crowded destinations: You will be safe and won’t have to face any inconvenience if you stick to the top destinations like Cairo, Giza, Aswan, Luxor and Sharm el Sheikh. Any place which is visited by tourists in huge numbers should be touted safe for a general woman traveler. Egypt is not unsafe for women. But for personal safety, it is best to avoid isolated areas especially if the country and the locals are unfamiliar to you.

II. Stay in reputed hotels: Women travelers must take up accommodation at hotels and resorts which are prestigious. As a woman, you must try to evade those cheap inns. And it would be foolish to stay at the home of a private person or an unknown family.

III. Travel with the aid of tour operators: Professional tour operators can be your best ally when you are intending to travel to any offshore country all alone. These professionals not just make your Egypt travel cheaper and memorable, but they will be by your side constantly and could be reached round the clock.

IV. Do not get too intimate with male strangers: You can strike up conversations with locals but try not to get too intimate with male strangers. If the person has got something on his mind or if he has an eye on you, then you may end up getting robbed, stalked or harassed.
