Egypt is one of the most popular tourists place in the world because of some amazing facts about Egyptian Pyramids. Every year a lot of tourists visit different historical and adventurous places in Egypt.

When you are going to Egypt, you should somehow care about your dressing. Egypt is a Muslim state and Muslim community have a special dress coding as they don’t want to reveal the body parts too much.

So, when you are in Egypt you should consider the sentiments of the local people and you should respect their concerns about dressing. When you are in a Muslim country, then not only the women but men should also know what they should wear and what they should not.

What to Wear in Egypt

They also understand that tourists can’t wear exactly the same clothes as the local people do. But anyhow, you can’t wear what you wear in the European countries.

While you are in your hotel, you can wear anything you like. But never think about going outside topless or in a Bikini. Women can wear long shorts and t-shirts. They will be more comfortable in this dress and the local people won’t mind as well.

While you are in a tourist place like El Gouna Excursions, you can even wear shorts with sleeveless shirts. People of Egypt on tourists places understand these things and they are more concerned about selling their product rather than noticing what you wear.

Again, never think to wear a Bikini or never go out topless even at the tourist place otherwise you might get upset by the behavior of the local people. Even regular tourists of Egypt don’t like if someone wears a bikini or a dress that is too much revealing on the public place.

Remember, Egyptian people dislike if women reveal some part of the stomach or hips. Too much exposure of the cleavage is also disliked. So, remember this while you are on Hurghada excursions.

If you are visiting a religious place, then you should be more careful and should wear a kaftan so that your complete body should be covered except your face, hands, and feet.

Clothing tips for Men

There is a specific dress code for men. But that is only for the local people. As a tourist, you are not bound to wear the same dress. Men have the same options as the women.

Many people believe that Muslims don’t like pant shirts, but that is not true. You can wear that without any hesitation. You can wear shorts, you can wear trousers as well.

So, this is what you should wear and what you should avoid wearing while you are in Egypt.

Travel to Pakistan, Best must visit places in Pakistan

Pakistan is Asian country and a part of sub-continent. Pakistan is victimized by terrorist as there were so many terrorist attacks and bomb blasts just a few years back and then Pak Army started an operation to clean all the areas of Pakistan specially Northern areas and FATA. As a result of this operation now the situation is very much under control and people can move freely even in those areas which were not safe before. Successfully hosting the PSL Final match in Lahore is also a good example that Pakistan is a safe place now to visit. In 2009 a group of terrorists attacked on Sri Lankan cricket team when they were going to Gaddafi Stadium of Lahore in a bus, since then no international match was held in Pakistan until a couple of years back Zimbabwe cricket team visited Pakistan but that did’t make any impact at that time.

This lake is covered with snow for large part of the year and only for few months people can visit this place, there is also a myth about this lake (in stories of local people) that depth of lake saiful muluk is unknown and no one is able to find the depth of this lake.
