I am planning a vacation to Egypt and i was wanting to do something that most people don’t really get to experience. Like a bit away from all the tourists. Although any ideas at all are appreciated 😀

    there are interesting places to visit like the Church in Old Cairo .
    Mary took Christ and hid in this Hanging Church to hide from their enemies .
    there are great mosques like Mohamed Ali Mosque .
    there is Khan El Khalil which is a big bazaar downtown.
    you can take a half day Nile Cruise with show and dinner or lunch .
    go around and watch the behavior of Egyptians .
    you will find that they are warm, helpful , and witty .

    Hi John. I live in Egypt and there aren’t many exotic things to do or see away from tourists. Anyways, the main things to see are indeed tourist spots and who wouldn’t want to see the Sphinx or the Valley of the Kings?

    Even the markets, like the souks in Cairo are tourist places, although nationals go there as well.

    Depending on what interests you, diving in Sharm is a tourist thing, but not everyone has the chance in life to go diving in the Red Sea do they? So, tourist spots are the highlights of Egypt.

    So, if you are looking for something non-touristy here, there isn’t much, other than meeting real people and traveling the smaller cities and observing the lifestyle and cultural scenery.

    Have fun whatever you do. Egyptian people are kind, helpful and generous; however, many will also take you for what they can get, so beware of taxi rates and ALL purchases.
