From what is being shown in media is far away from reality and being a visitor, you are sure to end up taking good feelings and happiness back to your home about the Egypt and its people. Since Islam is the dominant religion here, the businesses and shops are closed on Friday, except those being run by Christians. So in case you need to visit a market or someone’s place, you must not get surprised if you are asked to wait for the prayers to be done.

The Muslim owned establishments do not serve alcohols but the hotels do not have restrictions. Contrary to presumptions of people, the crime rate is really low in Egypt. But that does not mean you should be prudent. Always avoid deserted areas and you must also take care of yours against petty crimes. Egyptians women are also involved in several professions and those who are not well familiar with the culture of Egypt are often taken aback by the freedom given to women. The dress code, however, is quite simple and conservative as women are supposed to wear loose-hanging clothes that do not expose their body. You should not get familiar to Egyptian women if you are a man as this is considered unseemly.
