Vacations to Egypt
Thinking of going on a vacation to a faraway (or maybe not so faraway, depending on where you are) land? If youre looking for a destination that offers history, adventure, nature, shopping and culture, then Egypt is the country for you. Egypt offers a variety of historical sites, museums and activities, so youll definitely never be bored!
For those looking for a historical vacation, Egypt offers countless ancient temples located all over the country, from the magnificent Great Pyramids of Giza to Karnak Temple in Luxor, to the famed Step Pyramids of Saqqara. A historical tour of Egypt would be sure to include these ancient wonders as well as the very first Step Pyramids of Saqqara. Of course, theres much more to your historical tour than just this. You should also visit the Greek and Roman ruins in Alexandria, the old Coptic and Islamic monuments in Old Cairo, and the religious monasteries located along the Red Sea Coast, including St. Catherines Monastery in the Sinai Peninsula.
Of course, no visit to Egypt would be complete without a visit to any of the countless museums in Egypt. For sure a visit to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities is a must see when in Cairo because where else will you have the chance to come face to face with the mummy of Ramses III and the Golden Mask of King Tut.
But an Egyptian vacation doesnt just offer historyit offers adventure as well! While on vacation in Egypt, you can dive and snorkel off the coast of the Red Sea, camp out under the stars in the desert, or even go sandboarding in the Great Sand Sea. So many adventure activities are offered; you can even visit an oasis and tell your friends that you were saved by an oasis in the middle of the desert! With the option for adventure in the rugged desert outdoors and the opportunity to come up close and personal with some incredible and unique marine creatures in the Red Sea, adventure is just around any corner.
If youre more interested in a relaxing Egypt vacation, there are plenty of options available as well. While many only think of the desert when they think of Egypt, the country offers some spectacular coastline as well. With the Mediterranean Coast to the north, and the Red Sea to the east, there are thousands of miles of coastline, and hundreds of beaches to choose from and visit. Relaxing at any of these beaches offers you a very calming and soothing experience. The Red Sea especially offers great snorkeling and swimming locations.
And of course no vacation to Egypt would be complete without doing some shopping! Souvenirs for loved ones back home are a must, and they can be found almost everywhere. Egypt has the largest shopping complex in the Middle East, along with the beautifully authentic Khan El Khalili market where you can buy everything from mini pyramids to spices.
A vacation in Egypt doesnt only offer one kind of activity, it is multi-faceted, and can offer you all types of activities and vacations all at once.
