Hi Ridvan

My Name is Mohammed i work in the Travel business ur question is a hard one because there is a lot 2 do here and could cost what you want. What do you want to do. stay in Cairo or travel around or you want beach holiday. go to or broad way travel and you can have a look at the different hotels and prices. You can go to and look at the diffrent things you can do or they can give you advice so hope you have a great time.

Hi : please tell me what do you like to do and i will tell you how much it cost? contact me on
Costs can vary greatly based on your plans .. but there are hostels which cost 9 dollars per night and food can cost you about 10 dollars per day.
Get your student indentity it will cut down entrance fees to historical places by 50% , Egyptians are friendly and have great hospitality and you will feel this.
Public transportation are cheap in Egypt, the metro costs 1 l.e which is about 0.2 dollars and it spans a wide area in Cairo
Hi, Lyndall here from Nile Wave Travel. I can't tell you exacatly because I'm not sure what you want to do or where you want to go but here is some information for you:

- as a student your entry (you must have your student ID) will be half price into all historical sites like the pyramids, the museums etc. That would mean for example, the pyramids would cost you 30 pounds (about US$5.50) and the Egyptian Museum the same.
- you can stay in hostels in dormitory rooms with a shared bathroom for about US$9-10. Some hostels have free airport transfers.
- trains and buses are inexpensive and even taxis are not too costly. However if you want to go out of Cairo the train only goes from Aswan in the south to Marsa Matrouh in the north (via Alexandria). You can't get to the Red Sea beach areas or the Sinai by train. If you speak Arabic the local transport will be OK for you but microbuses and even ordinary buses very difficult if you don't speak Arabic.
- eating local/street food is also inexpensive, e.g. a koshery meal is 5 pounds, felafel is about 75 piasters for each one, the same for local shabrawy or sandwiches, a bottle of water at a supermarket one pound 50 piastres. Local baladi bread is about 5 pieces for one pound (and it's my favourite!) Fruit is also cheap. Getting your breakfast included at your accommodation can save money or get food from the supermarket. In summer it will very important that you drink a lot of water.
- if you stay only in Cairo I think you could get by very comfortably with 400 US$ and with that you could shout yourself to some night spots or a good restaurant one night.
- if you go out of Cairo, even though the train would only cost you around US$80 return to Aswan and back, you might like to have a safety margin and bring US$500.

I hope this is helpful. Find Nile Wave Travel at . If we can help you at all we'd love to do so. Become a fan and stay in touch :-)

All the best with your saving - I know you will have an awesome time in Egypt!

For meals not included, you can eat pretty cheap if you like.
