Karnak-Temple

Egypt has always been a popular destination for people who want to experience ancient history, a beautiful and rich culture, and wonderful places and people. It's still one of those destinations, though, that many people end up dreaming about rather than actually going. Here are 7 reasons why everyone should consider at least once in their lives visiting this beautiful country.

Admire the Egyptian History, Glory of Egypt and River Cruise

Let's answer the obvious immediately; Egypt is one of the best countries to visit if you're into ancient cultures, history, and architecture. Egypt provides one of the world's most exclusive and richest cultural experiences, and you'll find it hard to find somewhere with more historic landmarks per square meter.

Whether it's the library of Alexandria or the temple of Luxor or the Valley of Kings, once you get there, you'll be spoiled for choice. And if you want to see as many sights as possible when enjoying the natural beauty of one of the most famous water bodies in the world, you can always book a trip to the Nile on board a Nile Cruise while you're there.

Go on a desert safari Besides the historic sights

there are tons of things to sell in Egypt's unique landscape. If this is your first time around, why not get on a quad bike and ride up the dunes or take a camel ride through the Western Desert? Egypt is a land of many deserts and you can take your family on a camel trip through some of the most famous deserts in the world, such as the Blue Desert, the Sinai Desert and the Great Sand Sea. This is a great way to get away from tourism and explore the country in its rawest form.

Egypt Beaches

Egypt is more than deserts in Miles of Beautiful Beaches; it also has plenty of lovely beaches. The country counts miles and miles from some of the most beautiful beaches you'll see anywhere, like Cleopatra's beach, Gharam beach, Hurghada beach, and Agiba to name just a few. Such beaches are also sought after by water sports enthusiasts around the world, so if you're a fan of deep blue seas, stunning waves and beautiful golden soft sand beaches, Egypt is definitely your destination.

The night life

is one of the most unique nightlife in the world, apart from its natural beauty and culture. We always say it's the city of Nyc that never sleeps, but it's real in Cairo. Shops are always open all day and something needs to be done. The roads are always packed, a bonus if you're trying to get more comfortable as you explore the city after dark. Egypt has covered whether you are going for a bite at one o'clock or go shopping at 3 o'clock or have some food at 5 o'clock in the morning.

Visit One of the Egyptian Diverse Bazars

You can't say that until you visited one of the country's various souks, you had a whole Egyptian experience. Chan al-Khalili is a good place to store exotic fragrances, gold, silver and alabaster and spices. It is one of the largest souks in the world. But be ready to trade hard; the local traders are specialists in this sport and if you know how to play your cards right, you could end up playing a bit.

Combine with local people

The Egyptians are known for their friendliness and hospitality, and when you get there you can definitely feel it. Egyptians are very proud and will do all they can to make you feel comfortable and enjoy a good time. If you really want to know about the local culture, skip the tourist resorts and interact with the people. You will meet some of the warmest, kindest people you will have ever met, and who knows, maybe while you are at it you will have a chance to enjoy a cup of Egyptian tea.
