I have cycled to more than 70 countries around the world and I have been cycling around the world for almost 3 years now I have covered 50,000+ km distance and started a youtube channel to share my experiences I have 500K+subscribers. So let’s share some experiences with you.
Today I will tell you some stories about Egypt’s travel. Egypt is brimming with extraordinary, unique experiences that cater to every type of traveler. Whether you just want to cross off bucket-list sites, explore Bedouin culture, or simply love the great outdoors, here are the best Egypt experiences you shouldn’t miss on your next trip. So let’s start by telling you about some of the traditional places in Egypt.
1. The Pyramids Of Giza:
Have you really been to Egypt if you haven’t seen the Giza Pyramids? The Great Pyramid is one of the Seven Wonders of the World – the oldest and the only one still standing. The three pyramids located at Giza are still revealing their secrets. Tickets are required to enter the pyramid complex and I would recommend purchasing an additional ticket to enter one of the pyramids.
The passages are steep, dim, and dusty and the resulting tombs are empty, having been looted centuries ago. But the experience makes you feel like Indiana Jones at Disneyland as you enter the small heated stone entrance and explore the galleries, while others do the same.
2. The Egyptian Museum:
After a morning at the pyramids, see what has been moved to the Egyptian Museum. King Tutankhamun’s blue and gold mask is just one of the wonders recovered from his tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. The museum is packed with artifacts from pharaoh funerary statues to tools used by the people, and don’t miss the mummified remains of a crocodile in the mummified animal room.
3. Philae Temple:
Philae Temple is one of the unexpected highlights of Aswan. You approach Agilkia Island by boat and see ruins, sandstone pillars, and massive carved walls. We spent at least an hour exploring the ruins before meeting at the cafe for coffee. From Aswan, you can take a day trip to Abu Simbel Temple, although it’s a 3.5–hour drive at first to try to beat the heat in the open.
Useful Tips For Egypt:
- Keep an eye on your relevant government advice on visiting Egypt. If you are a single woman you may have security concerns so choose to go with a travel company.
- Talk to the agent in detail before booking and keep in touch with your family with daily brief updates via email where possible so that you feel safe and don’t get yourself into trouble during your stay.
- You can change money at the airport and there are plenty of ATMs and bureau de change offices in Cairo. At the airport, before immigration, you need to buy an Egyptian visa with money.
- When you’re an Egyptian, it’s normal to haggle in the market. As you walk through the market, vendors will constantly beckon you. It can be tiring and it’s okay to ignore them or say no thanks.
- Things you can take if you need them are sunscreen, tissues, insect repellent, Imodium, electrolytes, hand sanitizer, a hat, and a scarf. Make sure you always have a change of toilet and some tissues.
- Learn some phrases, especially hello, thanks, and no thanks.
- Don’t drink unbottled water unless you really can’t help it or you might find yourself in Egypt with a stomach bug before you see the rest of the world.
