Egypt during Ramadan: Guidelines for an American Tourist

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! I'm traveling to Egypt from August 4th to August 21st, visiting Cairo, Marina (north coast), and Sharm el Sheikh. I'll be travelling with my boyfriend, full egyptian and full arabic speaking. I only know a couple of phrases.

I understand that I'll be there during Ramadan. Will there be places for me to purchase cigarettes and liquor if I so choose? Can I bring liquor in my checked baggage without fear of it getting confiscated? I don't mean to sound like a total drunkard. I usually only average a drink or two a week with dinner. I'm not going to party or anything of that sort, but I do occasionally enjoy a drink.

Any tips you might recommend me for traveling around egypt will be greatly appreciated!
