What do I need to do to obtain my tourist visa?
You must go to the Egyptian Embassy to apply for your tourist visa. In case you are from another country like Australia, Brazil, Malaysia, Western Europe, North America, or others, you are allowed to take your tourist visa upon arrival in Egypt.
Why is it more preferable to stay in a hotel near the pyramids than to stay in the center?
The first thing to do when visiting Cairo is to head to the great pyramids of Giza, especially if you are staying for a few days, and thus booking a room in a hotel near the pyramids will allow you to visit various tourist sites easily and in a short time without getting stuck in the downtown traffic jam. Hotels near the Pyramids also offer more luxurious facilities like outdoor pools, beautiful gardens to relax in, and more to ensure you get entertaining accommodation. Also, the cost of staying in a resort in the pyramids area is less than that of downtown hotels.
Is it possible to explore any of the three pyramids of Giza from the inside?
Yes, it is allowed, but there is a limited number of tickets, and you can only buy these tickets from the main entrance. You have to get there early so you can find a ticket because they sold out quickly.
Is it allowed to take photos inside the tombs?
Taking photos inside the tombs is not allowed, and at some sites like Valle del Rey, visitors are asked to put down their cameras before entering because using the camera flash can ruin artwork inside the tombs. Therefore, you must follow the rules to avoid the occurrence of any problems.
Is there certain clothing for men to enter a mosque?
Men are preferred to wear long pants and not shorts in case of entering a mosque, but they will not face any problem if they wear shorts.
