    Does anyone know if there is a smoking ban in Egypt?

    I know there was a smoking ban in Greece and Turkey, but it wasn't inforced in many places. Does anyone know if there is one in Egypt and is it reinforced?(Think I know the answer to this one)

    when was there a smoking ban in Turkey? smoking in turkey is rife everywhere-bars,restaurants,theaters,cinemas etc etc-never heard of any ban?

    Banned

    not heard of any bans anywhere

    well,a quick google seems to indicate that turkeys parliament did introduce a ban supposedly,but we were there a coupla months ago and everyone smokes EVERYWHERE ,including the police-lol.

    having been to greece and seen the smoking culture there,would be surprised if they give much of a fig for any ban either.

    not when we went in june but I think they were going to try in alexandria. But all the egyptian I spoke to said no one would do it.

    here's a link to the alexandria one. Linky

    Thanks. Yeah 'smoking ban' came into Turkey last year but like I said was not inforced. Oh god thats the only bit of holiday I hate......having a bad chest and coughing up rubbish the day after sitting near a smoker.....wah.

    I think it's Law to actually smoke in Egypt.

    Seriously, some bars/restaurants don't allow it, but most when I went did.

    To be fair though... how would you know....

    Smoke anywhere you like, Health and Safety is pretty much non existent in Egypt, the last thing they give a **** about is smoking that's for sure.

    i was there at the end of june/beginning of july and the only places you couldn't smoke was inside boats (i was on a nile cruise) and on busses. Egyptians smoke EVERYWHERE!!
