Reasons Why You Should Visit Egypt
1: Your Truly One Stop Shop
Beaches, monuments, gushing rivers, cosmopolitan cities, vast deserts and world-famous coral reef sites are all to be found in Egypt. This means you don't need to browse through hundreds of possible destinations around the globe for your ideal vacation- Egypt has it all!
2: Home of the Great Pyramids… and Much More
While many worldwide destinations offer travelers a glimpse of the past, only in Egypt can you stand at the viewing platform on the Pyramids plateau and gaze out over the only remaining wonder of the ancient world. Visitors are surprised to discover that those legendary pyramids are merely the tip of the archaeological iceberg though (think ancient temples, world-renowned museums, vast necropoleis, holy summits, royal tombs, beautiful mosques and the Sphinx).
3: One Nation, Numerous Civilizations
Egypt is truly a mélange of civilizations: The Pharaohs, Nubians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Copts, Arabs, Mamluks and Ottomans have all played their part in fashioning Egypt's abundance of architectural wealth. Today, traces of these great civilizations can be easily seen throughout the country.
4: Hospitality, Egyptian-Style
According to Lonely Planet, Egypt is the most traveler-friendly country in North Africa and the Middle East. We owe that to a widely accessible and affordable transportation network coupled with an abundance of various accommodation venues and a general travel-friendly environment.
5: The Year-Round Destination
Because of its diverse geographical make-up, travelling to Egypt can be enjoyable anytime during the year. Winter days spent cruising the Nile in Upper Egypt are absolutely unforgettable, while visits to the Mediterranean coast of Alexandria or the Red Sea resorts of Hurghada and Sinai could serve as ideal beach-based summer holidays.
6: Partake in Local Habits
A visit to Egypt will surely leave you appreciating a few new things: a calming glass of afternoon tea in the older districts of the city; the art of bargaining with the local sellers at the famous Khan Al Khalili marketplace; and the constant vibe of optimism and friendliness shared by Egyptians as they go on about with their daily lives. Moreover, when you combine that with a terrific Mediterranean-infused Middle Eastern cuisine, be assured that you will leave with an unparalleled overseas experience to share with your friends back home
7: Witness the Dynamics of Three Mesmerizing Regions Combined
Egypt has the unique characteristic of being situated in two continents. Most of it lies in the northeastern corner of the great African continent, while its eastward-lying Sinai Peninsula reaches towards Asia. As if two regions were not enough, Egypt also plays a primary role in shaping the Middle East. So that's three regions rich with culture, tradition and customs for you to experience and enjoy the minute you step onto Egyptian soil.
8: Bucket List
