How much Money do i need in Egypt?


I am heading to Egypt for 10 days and am booked on a tour which includes accomodation and transportation. I need to figure out how mouch money to take just for food, entry fees and a little bit of shopping.

I am currently holidaying in UAE so trying to figure out costs.

We dont mind eating cheaply and when i say little shopping i am thinking maybe 1 souvenier. Are the entry fees for the sites in US dollars? and how much are visas for entry?

I posted a general item on money issues in Egypt. It won't all be relevant to you, since you are doing a tour, but it includes accurate entry fees to many sites, which you may find useful.

Entrance fees are quoted in Egyptian Pounds (LE).

If you're serious about eating cheaply, you can budget LE20-30 per meal.

Here's the link to my earlier post:

Hi Zaira

I think its very difficult for an egyptian or an arabian to go USA now especially in these conditions in the whole world, but anyway you can send the american embassy in Cairo egypt.usembassy.gov
