What to wear to Fayoum?

When travelling around Egypt be ready to be an object of attention and curiosity. Your appearance, dress, behavior, and the way you speak are all strange and often entertaining. If you want to have a relaxing, enjoyable holiday and experience the real warmth and hospitality of Fayoumis, here are a few things to bear in mind:

- Both men and women should avoid showing too much skin.
- Women should wear clothes that cover the shoulders, and the legs down to the knees.
- Women with long hair, especially blond, are advised to put it up or cover it with a headscarf.
- Men should never remove their shirts, and should also not uncover their shoulders or any part of the legs.
