Travel to Egypt: Miles of Nile and Worlds of Wonder

Egypt Pyramid

Egypt is always the first destination for global travel every year - and this is not surprising. The country uniquely bridged African and Asian continents through the Suez Canal by owning the Sinai Peninsula. This key location ensured Egypt a key role in the strategic and historical relations between East, West, North, South Africa, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, the most direct in more than 5,000 years when the first Kingdom of Egypt was unified. In addition to the historical past, Egypt offers enthusiastic travelers the prosperity of international cities, luxurious Red Sea resorts, legendary oases and hundreds of miles of ancient Pharaoh trails along the Nile River Valley.

When Egyptian Muslim Arabs introduced Islam in the 7th century, many of the already bad effects of indigenous dynasties became less important in the national heritage. Fortunately, renewed interest in preserving monuments over the past few centuries has kept these ancient wonders intact until the world continues to enjoy them. The ideal place to start is Cairo, where the Egyptian Museum houses hundreds of thousands of artifacts and will give you a chance to catch up with your knowledge of ancient Egyptian history from the fourth grade. Nearby are the spectacular pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx that were cut from a single slab of stone more than 4,000 years ago, which can be seen more quietly outside the crowds than on horseback. South of Cairo, Upper Egypt offers a series of exciting temple cities between the legendary Luxor and Aswan, including the Valley of the Kings. Although the tomb of King Tutankhamun is located here, it is not nearly as impressive as the surrounding royal tombs, especially kings of the Ramses dynasties.

The small ocean of your capital?
Apart from the Nile River Valley, Egypt consists largely of the desert of the south and west. However, Egypt also happens to be a first-class tourist destination with approximately (500 miles) from the eastern edge bordered by the calm yellow waters of the Red Sea coast. Visit the vibrant city of Hurghada where traditional Egyptian life overlaps with a luxurious international resort. This area is very popular for scuba diving and snorkeling through numerous underwater shipwrecks, sea caves, and exotic fish. There are many islands that you can flee to by boat or boat and many small fishing towns to get a little calm, flavor and local added to your holiday.

The Mediterranean coast also offers a wonderful break from the rolling sand dunes. Alexandria is the bustling coastal city of Egypt with more Greek and French flares than the rest of the country. The history of the city is very eclectic, wandering the streets like wander across cultures and periods. Alex the Great resisted against the Romans from Alexandria, bringing with him a large number of Greeks, and Napoleon briefly gained control of the Old City.

Remember that Egypt is old and modern. Traveling to Egypt is not only about archaeological wonders and chilling tales, but also about the experience of a nation of geopolitical and economic significance to its larger surrounding region, a country of great importance to the identity of North Africa to the Middle East and the Mediterranean. Egypt today is justified like the pyramids of Giza, which symbolize the nation's heritage.
