Always remember to bring plenty of sun screen and protective clothing--the sun is intense in Sinai. Although temperatures can reach 100° F during the day, at night the desert turns cool, even freezing, so some warm clothing is also necessary. Finally, carrying bottled water is indispensable. Tap water outside the Sharm el-Sheikh area is largely undrinkable, and the arid, hot environment can dehydrate you very quickly.
