1. Re: currency

As far as I'm aware you are allowed to bring only 200 English pounds value in Egyptian pounds,[LE]. Thats approximately 2,000LE. 20LE is only 2 pounds sterling so maybe that's a typo!!

I would personally bring Sterling & exchange it here as the rate is much better. Dollars are ok too though, especially small denominations for tipping
