Need to haggle over prices were they are not fixed.People friendly but do not take everything at face value.
Its nothing here..spend in corniche looking at the beach, asian country is much more beautiful.. The politic is not good so as the people.
. they will very freindly , but in a bad way..which is money. they will get your money in any forms of way,try to avoid them, which is not easy as they are very pushy,,but running away is the best way.. life for this egypt people is very horrible, tip is not by your heart , but its compulsory.. if you handed them 100Le for a purchase of 80Le, do not expect them to return it back...you will have to ask for the change,,if no they will just take your money assuming you are giving them a tip...what an attitude.. thanks god the pyramid that there is still people travelling to egypt..which i will never do anymore.
For non Egyptians, I think Alexandria is the sort of place you would go if you are a seasoned traveller who is more interested in getting to grips with a culture rather than a site seeing trip.
Even though its obviously historically an amazing place, sightseeing isn't as easy as it could be. It's hectic, noisy, crazy, and I enjoyed my visit there.
