First time in Egypt

Hi there,

We (couple/ 30) are going to Hurghada for the first time in 8 -15 August and was just wondering if anyone could give some general info. Things to do/not to do? All your advise will help us. Thank you!

Hi Andreea

If your getting your visa on arrival, only use the official 'bank' kiosk for the correct price of $25 per person.

Also wait till you arrive in Egypt to change your currency as you will get a better exchange rate.
