This thread is marked as being about Egypt


Just checked my dates again and I will be in Egypt for Ramadan. Is there any customs / rules or general observations that I should be aware of ? I don't want to offend anyone when I get there... also does this means that most shops etc will be closed in the days ......

Thank you for all your help..

No real problems during ramadan. the only problem is eating!! its rude to eat or drink in publis during the day. inside hotels are fine. then at iftar (fast breaking) everything stops..usually between 5pm and 6pm.

Thank you for the info, a mate was telling me that we may have problems traveling in the day because of this so I wasn't sure, whats the weather there at the moment ? thanking you in advance,
