Some smaller cities in Arabic-speaking countries don’t have tourist information centers. You might have to rely on asking the locals. Here's how you ask where something is:

الاقي فين...

Izay Ala2y…

Where can I find…

And then just add what you're trying to find at the end. Here's a list of some things you might be looking for:


El Mat7af

the museum

المعرض الفني

El Ma3rd el Fani

the art exhibition

مكتب المفقودات

الاقي فين مكتب لتبديل العملة؟

Ala2y fin maktab la tabdil el 3omlat?
