How to Plan a Magical Trip to Egypt and Muslim Countries

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

A MUST-READ to help you avoid hassles, uncomfortable situations, and even danger.

Egypt is calling many souls to its sacred land and ancient wisdom. If you feel called to the land, you just found the perfect guide to help you plan a safe and magical trip.

If we're meeting for the first time, my name is Katherine. I am a Soul Mentor, Spiritual Teacher in Hawaii, and someone who answered an inner calling to go to Egypt.

In this post, I share 5 TOP TIPS to help you plan a magical experience in Egypt or another country with a similar culture. Keep reading to learn HOW.

1. Exchange your Money for the Local Currency (Egyptian Pounds)

  • Tipping is an important cultural part of Egypt. Constant requests for tips can be annoying, but it’s essential to understand that it’s part of everyday life in Egypt.

  • Best Advice: Always keep small bills in your pocket - 5, 10, and 20 pounds for tipping; and to make sure not to overpay for gifts, use a currency exchange app and shop around first. Negotiation is highly recommended.

  • When not to tip? If someone asks you to pay for something you didn’t ask for, which is very common.

2. Best Spiritual Practices

  • Egypt is becoming a popular destination for spiritual awakening, but finding a quiet place to meditate and soak in the energy of the land can be a challenge. There are tourists and salespeople everywhere you go.

  • Instead of trying to meditate near the Pyramid or inside a temple, wake up early, watch the sunrise, and meditate before you leave your room to explore the land. Also, journal about your experience every day, and set some time aside to simply integrate everything.

  • Advance Practice: experience a day of silence and fast for a few hours. You can experience some instant magic and healing.

3. Avoid Unsolicited Approaches

  • If someone offers to take you to a "special place" inside a temple to meditate or pray, it is most likely to be an attempt to get money. Simply Say “No!” or “I don’t have any money to give you”.

  • Remedy for Women: Don’t get too much attention. Egypt is a Muslim country, and tourists with short dresses and summer clothes get a lot of attention from locals. It’s a good idea to respect the culture and to bring a scarf to cover your shoulders and legs, especially if you're traveling solo.

4. Be Aware of What You Eat and Drink

  • It’s possible to get sick from food and water contamination. Try avoiding raw food and tap water, and only eat food that supports your overall health.

  • If you get diarrhea without any pain or other symptoms, it can be associated with a cleansing process, which is very common to happen in Egypt.

  • Always listen to your body, keep yourself hydrated, and don’t force eating. If you don’t feel well, fasting for a few hours is highly encouraged; however, if you have any health issues or have never fasted before, talk to your doctor.

5. Bring NO Expectations to Egypt. Be Surprised by its Magic!

  • The energy in Egypt is powerful, and it’s very important NOT to try to direct the journey yourself. The magic of Egypt will guide, support, and protect you. When you’re ready, everything will be present to you.

  • Follow this simple guide and TRUST your inner calling.
