The Land of the Pharaohs

The Land of the Pharaohs

‘I've always really, really wanted to go to Egypt and go inside some pyramids and just hang out there. I don't know why. I don't like hot weather, and I don't like the desert, but something about the pyramid and the mummies and all their history there, I'd love to go check it out.’ -Jean-Luc Bilodeau

Egypt has always fascinated me with its culture and different outlooks at life. The history of Egypt has been the longest histories of any modern country. Ancient Egypt has experienced some of the earliest developments of writing, agriculture, urbanization, organized religion and central government. There are many fascinating monuments which catches the eyes of the traveler. Some monuments are Giza Necropolis and its Great Sphinx; as well the ruins of Memphis, Thebes, Karnak, and the Valley of the Kings, reflect this legacy and remain a significant focus of archaeological study and popular interest worldwide. Egypt's rich cultural heritage is an integral part of its national identity, which has endured, and at times assimilated, various foreign influences, including Greek, Persian, Roman, Arab, Ottoman, and European. One of the earliest centers of Christianity, Egypt was Islamized in the seventh century and remains a predominantly Muslim country, albeit with a significant Christian minority.

A vacation to Egypt is like fantasy for many. Some come as a traveler to for their love of history while others just come as tourist to explore the historical wonders of the ancient world. Egypt had been the miraculous country in itself, starting from the land to the building, geography to history and culture to religion. When you plan to take a trip to Egypt, you should be ready to experience a new life, a new vision, a new culture and a new experience.

The geography of the area contains the Nile River which is located in the North from the foothills of the Africa cutting in the Sudan area to till the spills in the Mediterranean. Geographically, the Nile River divides the country into two unequal segments that are the Eastern area and the Western desert. Being a deserted area, the climate of Egypt is best described as Hot, Dry or Sunny. Basically, on your tours to Egypt, you will face two different seasons. One is warm that stays from May to October and the other is the cooler season that stays from November to until April. The temperature varies as per the seasons and you can experience extreme heat as well as winters due to the desert area. Not to mention that the beautiful country of Egypt enjoys a rich culture of kings, queens and several Pharaohs. The CleopatraShakespeare imaginary world, Anthony and almost all the interesting historical figures have evolved from this soil. Blessed and flourished with a history worth reading and visiting, Egyptians have long been counted amongst the most loyal saviors to their rulers. The pyramids are a live example of their dedication and love for their kings.

The most important thing that we should remember while traveling to Egypt is the dress code and the living style. The country is Muslim population country and the tourist do need to keep this mind and bear some important things in their mind. They should avoid wearing any short clothes and getting intimate in public places.  Before entering at any religious or important place, you need to pay attention to your clothing. Women must wear clothes that cover them from top to toe. It also makes the visitors respectable in front of the countryman.

It is a safe and very friendly country. The population in Egypt is quite lovely and will help if anything needed. If you think that Egypt is not good for female visitors then you are a bit wrong. Being a woman, you just need to follow some points nothing else. Egypt people are very friendly and know how to respect the visitors coming from outside.

But still when you try to book a hotel or a tour guide, one should make sure to check and recheck before booking anything in advance. The people in the country are very friendly but there can be incidences where one get be cheated.

When we travel to a country, we should be fully aware about the culture. The culture of the country will always play a vital role in knowing the nature of the people of the country.

The most beautiful places that should be on our list when you visit the country:-

  1. The Great Pyramids

Nothing can beat the beauty of Egyptian pyramids of Giza and it gets doubled at the time of Sunset. If you want to explore Egypt tourist places, arrive the Giza pyramids late afternoon and stay there till Sunset to catch the striking glimpse of nature. Don’t forget to bring your DSLR as you will definitely want some photos to capture this rare scene of natural splendor. Avoid watching it behind the lens as the most spectacular sights can only be explored by watching the sun behind the pyramids. Rooftop in Giza is another ideal site to watch the Sunset gaze of the landscape.

  1. Al AzharPark, Cairo

Al Azhar Park is one of the most peaceful places of the country from where you can watch the panoramic view of Sunset. During Egypt tourist places, watch the Sun go down from the pinnacle of this lovely park- it is just a short drive away from Cairo residences.

Spend your sunny day in the cafes and enjoy relaxing evenings in the parks. And, adore the beauty of dusk at Sunset of Africa’s 2nd biggest city.

  1. Mokattam Cliff, Cairo

If you are a nature lover then prefer Mokattam cliff to catch the beautiful moments of the dusky evening.  From this cliff, you can overlook the entire Cairo with pixelled views. Cairo appears best at night. Although, Mokattam cliff is not among tourist destinations but, you can enjoy a complete day picnic with your family as the refreshment vendors are present there.

  1. From the Nile River

Explore the beauty of Egypt from the most iconic natural wonders. Being the longest river in the World, the Nile runs through the whole Egypt. It is also known as the backbone of Egypt.

Get your boat down in Nile River and relish the Sunset views in a unique way.

  1. Stanley Bridge, Alexandria

Although, it is not among the most romantic destinations in Egypt, still, one should not miss visiting this place. Stanley Bridge is a place where you can freeze a lot of memories to take up with you. Stand on the bridge and enjoy the unobstructed view of going down the Sun in the Mediterranean Sea. Drive over the bridge and appreciate the magnificent view of Sunset- don’t let obstruct anything between the horizon and you.

 

BE A TRAVELER, NOT JUST A TOURIST.

May I simply say what a relief to find someone who really knows what they're discussing over the internet. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people must read this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you aren't more popular since you definitely possess the gift.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could certainly be one of the very best in its niche. Amazing blog!
