Tourist Places In Egypt

Being one of the oldest cradles of civilization Egypt has seen more than its share of history. First, the Pharaohs, then the Greeks, Romans and the Ottomans, then the British followed by the Islamic rule. Needless to say, Egypt attracts a plethora of tourists every year with such a mystical past and stunning beauty of the reminiscent ancient cultures. Every Egypt tourist destination reflects the heritage that the country bears in its very soul.

Sites of ancient civilization in Egypt

Egypt has one of the leading collections of ancient sites in the world. The Great Pyramid and Sphinx of Giza is quite literally a symbol of Egypt. Abu Simbel Temple is another such place, related to the great Pharaoh Ramesses II dating back to 1200 BC. The elaborate Valley of Kings, Karnak Temple and Temple of Hatshepsut in Luxor and the Philae Temple in Aswan are must-visit Egypt tourist attractions.

Museums and galleries of Egypt

The Egyptian Museum of Antiquities can be said to be home to an amazing historical collection - something that is the best in the world. Artefacts collected from excavated tombs and places in ancient Egypt, including the mask of Tutankhamun are housed here, along with many other antique items, many of which are 2000-3000 years old. Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo is quite a phenomenon as well. Alexandria National Museum, Nubian Museum and Luxor Museum are definitely worth a visit.

Here are the five best Egypt points of interest to visit.

1. Pyramids of Giza

Pyramids themselves are quite a wonder, and the three Pyramids of Giza are even more so. Located on the Giza Plateau, these structures are more than 4500 years old but have withstood the test of time brilliantly. The Great Pyramid, standing at 138 metres, is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Once you get here, you will see that the pyramids here are guarded by the iconic statue of the Sphinx, one of the most popular Egypt attractions.

2. Valley of Kings, Luxor

Luxor or ancient Thebes is home to the famous Valley of King. Here numerous rock-cut tombs of ancient pharaohs stand side by side. Some of the greatest names like Amenhotep and Tutankhamen had their tombs over here. However, it is mostly an active excavation site, and only a few are open to tourists. Do visit Tutankhamun's tomb, not just because it is one of the most famous Egypt places to visit, but also because it is said to be cursed and makes for a thrilling time.

3. Islamic Cairo

Cairo got the nickname the City of a Thousand Minarets because of its inherent Islamic essence. Islamic Cairo is dotted with numerous mosques, souks and streets with an Arabic or Turkish feel to it. Sultan Hassan Mosque, Al-Azhar Mosque and medieval gate of Bab Zuweila are among the best Egypt destinations.

4. Aswan

The city that supplied the stones for pyramids back in the day is now the most picturesque city of Egypt, set against golden yellow sand dunes and sparkling blue curves of Nile. The tranquil Elephantine Islands and the colourful streets of Nubian villages are perfect getaways for a weekend.

5. Oasis of Siwa

Amidst the busy schedule of Egypt sightseeing, the magnificent Oasis of Siwa is exactly like a drop of water in the middle of the desert. Surrounded by date palms and freshwater springs, Siwa is centred on the towering mud-brick citadel that overlooks the golden ruins of an old town.

      Very well arranged tour with a perfect itinerary. The guides were amazing & very knowledgeable. Although we missed the hot air balloon on day 2 bcoz of train delay, it was scheduled on a different day & that day happened to be Jan 1. It was indeed surreal to start 2019 by watching the first sunrise of the year from high up in the sky! Hot Air Balloon ride at Luxor & the Nile Cruise

      Devaansh was super attentive and helpful. Trip was great, but I had a separate agency coordinator for pickup and dropoff, a historian tour guide, and a new driver each day in Egypt. Tipping was out of hand. Wish that were more consolidated as in other countries. Otherwise great time!
