Savour culture and coffee

Mosque-at-night-410x220
The chaotic metropolis of Cairo can, at first, be overwhelming. But wander into the quieter back alleys and you’ll be rewarded with a thriving scene of gorgeous bookshops, traditional Arabic eateries and kaleidoscopic bazaars. Slip into the local groove at one of Cairo’s friendly coffee houses to taste real Egyptian ahwa for the first time, before shopping in the capital’s vibrant souqs – you’ll soon become accustomed to the fine art of haggling as you explore the city.

Discover endless natural wonders

Hot-air-baloon-410x220
Watching hot air balloons float over the Nile at sunrise is truly beautiful, but actually being in one is a truly unforgettable experience. Swoon as lush valleys give way to the ruggedness of the desert, see traditional felucca sailboats glide across the vast river and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Egypt’s extravagant monuments.

Useful information

Visa

Before you fly to Egypt, make sure you have the correct visa documentation in place. Visa requirements can vary depending on which country you are from, so check with your embassy to find out what you’ll need.

Currency

During your time in Egypt you’ll use the national currency – the Egyptian Pound (EGP). It’s divided into 100 piastres or ersh, or 1,000 millimes. A range of notes are frequently used, available in the following denominations: 25pt, 50pt, £1, £5, £10, £20, £50, £100, £200.

Language

Egypt’s official language is Arabic, but Egyptian Arabic is by far the most widely spoken in the country.

Weather

Most of Egypt is desert, so you’ll enjoy warm and sunny weather all year round when you visit – even in December. Temperatures range from as low as 9°C in January to 40°C from July to September. If you’d prefer cooler days for sightseeing, winter provides a milder climate.

Getting around

You can get around Egypt by taxi, bus, train or car. Taxis and trains are inexpensive and available throughout the country, while buses and coaches can take you to the country’s major destinations. Look out for metro stations, which have a big red ‘M’ in a blue star: given the hectic traffic in cities like Cairo, they can shave a lot of time off your journey.

Airport information

flydubai operates out of Borg El Arab Airport, 34km south-west of Alexandria. The city’s airport is very well connected, with parking and taxis readily available, as well as car hire through flydubai.
