The one of the best Travel guide to Egypt

Welcome to Egypt :

Egypt welcomes you with its mighty Nile and
magnificent monuments, the beguiling desert and lush
delta, and with its long past and welcoming, storyloving
people.
Pyramids & More
With sand-covered tombs, austere pyramids and towering Pharaonic temples,
Egypt brings out the explorer in all of us. Visit the Valley of the Kings in
Luxor, where Tutankhamun’s tomb was unearthed, and see the glittering
finds in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Hop off a Nile boat to visit Dendara,
Edfu or one of the other waterside temples, cross Lake Nasser to see Ramses
II’s masterpiece at Abu Simbel, or trek into the desert to find the traces of
Roman trading outposts. You never know – your donkey might stumble
across yet another find, for that is the way many previous discoveries were
made.
Beaches & Beyond
That empty beach with nothing but a candle-lit cabin, and a teeming coral
reef offshore: they’re waiting for you in Egypt. The coast along the Red Sea
has a rugged desert beauty above the waterline and a psychedelic vibrancy
below – rewarding to explore on a multiday outing to one of the globe’s great
dives or on an afternoon’s snorkelling jaunt along a coral wall. There is even
more space and just as much beauty in Egypt’s vast deserts. Whether you’re
watching the sun rise between the beautiful shapes of the White Desert or the
shimmering horizon from the comfort of a hot spring in Siwa Oasis, Egypt’s
landscapes are endlessly fascinating.
Going with the Flow
The old saying that Egypt is the gift of the Nile still rings true: without the
river there would be no fertile land, no food and a lot less electricity.
Although people’s lives are increasingly physically detached from the water,
the Nile still exerts a uniquely powerful role. Luckily for visitors, the river is
also the perfect place from which to see many of the most spectacular ancient
monuments, which is one reason why a Nile cruise remains such a popular
way to travel.
Two Religions
Egypt once ruled an empire from Al Qahira – Cairo, the City Victorious. The
metropolis is packed with soaring minarets and medieval schools and
mosques, some of the greatest architecture of medieval Islam. At the same
time, Egypt’s native Christians, the Copts, have carried on their traditions
that in many respects – such as the church’s liturgical language and the
traditional calendar – link back to the time of the pharaohs. Tap into the
history in Cairo’s early churches and in remote desert monasteries.
