When visiting Egypt, comfortable, casual clothing in natural breathable fabrics is best. Pack pieces that are good for layering as well. If dining at a nice restaurant for dinner, a jacket and tie is recommended for men and “smart casual” wear for women. Formal clothing is not necessary. Both males and females should cover their arms, legs, and shoulders when visiting temples and mosques in Egypt, so we recommend that ladies pack a scarf large enough to cover bare shoulders and neck, and that you wear (or carry) socks since shoes must be removed when entering religious buildings.
