WHAT TO PACK:

Summer months: Lightweight clothing. A sweater for cool Cairo evenings. At all times: Modesty in clothing should be observed; wear bathing suits and shorts at the beach or swimming pools only. A good rule is to cover your back and shoulders outside of the hotel area. Women should cover their arms when visiting mosques. Bring comfortable shoes for sightseeing.

Cairo is a shopping adventure! Buy brass, copper, inlaid wooden articles, silver and gold jewelry, leather shoes, bags and belt, cotton goods or perfumes. You should be able to bargain up to two thirds off the price originally quoted to you.
