Eat only the right hand, so it is accepted, since they are left to wash after using the toilet. Tearing off a piece of cake, catch them meatballs or pasta, or chicken, and eat, will not give out spoons. Torguytesv tablespoons mild, they turn up their prices just a half times.
Beaches of Egypt"
Egypt is famous for its beaches. Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh, El Gouna, Safaga, Soma and Makadi Bay - an ideal place for sunbathing, swimming, diving and windsurfing. All of them are on the Red Sea coast, stretching from the north to the south of Egypt more than 1000 kilometers. In the Red Sea does not fall into any river, so the water is crystal clear and very warm.
Hotels in Egypt:
Literally 99% of all hotels in the Turkish Mediterranean is working on an all-inclusive, on the Aegean coast and in the "interior" of such hotels in Turkey are much lower. In Istanbul and Ankara even full board - a rarity, mostly there for breakfast and half board.
Specifics on holiday in Turkey: All Entertainment - on site, so the infrastructure is highly developed in them, many services are offered free of charge.
Check-out time in hotels - 12:00. The form of payment in all hotels is different. In some tourist arrival day issued a magnetic card which is "rolled" through a card reader for the provision of paid services in the area (total score will be printed on the eve of departure). The other is a system of checks (after each service rendered tourist signs the receipt for a certain amount). To avoid confusion, these receipts are best kept until the end of your stay. Some services are paid for in cash.
We advise tourists to use the safe storage of documents, money and valuables. Rent safe is 1-3 USD per day.
Shopping in Egypt:
As a souvenir you can buy stone (basalt, granite or alabaster) statues of ancient Egyptian gods, the hookah (shishu) and papyrus. In the resort areas of the vast majority of shops and stores do not have fixed prices. Therefore - advice to tourists: haggle, haggle and haggle again. Original price strays at times. When buying a stone figurines must be careful imitations of painted plaster. To verify the base can be scratched with a fingernail figurines - painted plaster will give a white scratch. When buying a hookah should be borne in mind that often come across "souvenir" Chichi, use that for its intended purpose is almost impossible. Need to be careful when purchasing and papyri. Cheap banana stamping on the poor quality and short-lived material eventually will give for 1-3 LE. Qualitative papyrus (it can be recognized by a neat technique of drawing and on the fact that it can be without the slightest harm to collapse and crush) will cost around 10-20 LE.
