How To Get Around Ok Cairo Reviews
Nov 14, 2007
--One peice of advice i give to all women traveling to egypt, esspecially if they are on their own is to wear a wedding ring ! This is for your own saftey. people still get kiddnapped, a high percentage of which is women. to prevent this make it known that you will be looked for if you were missing, by wearing a wedding ring it indicates that you have someone who will be waiting for you and come to find you.
--I also advise taking a spare wallet and fill it with a few egyptian pounds and cards you wont mind loosing. If you get mugged you can hand over that wallet, and still have all you important stuff safe.
--Make sure you are never allown in a room with a random man, unfortunatly when i traveled to egypt i met a lovley woman on the cruise who was sexually abused by someone on board the ship, so keep in mind it can happen.
--Although not massivley nessasary, try to go out around the town with a man, again it adds that extra bit of saftey...plus you wont get so many marrage offers haha.
Saying this however i had an amazing time in egypt, the egyptians are amazing and they do so much to accomodate you, but just like in any other country you do get a few bad apples. keep yourself safe and be confident, thats the trick.
