We exchanged our money in our hotel and at the airport. For women, it is best if you do not show too much arms and legs. I realized my bare arms was causing a frenzy (rolling my eyes) so I purchased a couple shawls. Even then, many egyptian men came up to my husband and patted his back to say "lucky man"!!! And I think I am average looking at best. :)

So cover up if you can, or expect to be commented on. Whatever works for you. :)You will notice that most egyptian women dress in western outfits and are quite fashionable, but are definitely covered on the most part.

Thanks for the info, I don't wish to be commented about so I'll take appropriate clothes. :-)
