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.

    Suresh's 8 days trip to Egypt

    It was an excellent trip, very well arranged. Though the group had a small visa issue due to late delayed renewal of passport, we could still make it and got the visa on arrival without any hassles. Hotels, vehicles, cruise were well arranged. The best part of the trip was the excellent guides, who could explain the little things.

    Pavithra's 9 days trip to Egypt

    Hotels in Cairo we're situated very far away. We had to travel 1hr to get into the city for sightseeing. Few of the guides were rude and were in a hurry. The hotel in Hurghada was good. Guide in Alexandria was amazing and accommodating.

    Deepanshu's 6 days trip to Egypt

    Alright! So, finally got to write about the trip. Don’t know how to describe, but the trip was simply awesome. Starting from day 1, started getting some surprises – someone available inside Cairo airport to help with immigration, luggage, currency and finally dropped till cab. This was unexpected. SIM was arranged and handed over to us on day 1 as well with 4GB data – went till second last day of our 7 days trip and then did the recharge. The hotel in Cairo/Giza – actually in Giza, which is the oldest town in Egypt, and it does feel like it, literally, could be improved. Rooms in a 4-star property are expected to be maintained. Had to ask for a room change on first day. The cab driver in Cairo, the tour guides for Alexandria and Cairo, were awesome. Yes, an English-speaking driver would have been appreciated, but since English is not widely spoken in Egypt, we had to manage with Google Translator anyway. The driver otherwise was very nice and interesting person. We were playing Bollywood songs in the last days of the trip – got to know his love for Amitabh Bachchan and he could literally identify the movie name by just listening to old songs of Amitabh sir. Something which could’ve been better as well – on the cruise, the driver was there to make arrangements but wasn’t given a place to be seated. This felt bad on humanitarian ground since we could see him standing outside the hall all the time. Another glitch was one of our domestic flights time mismatch – Cairo to Hurghada as per my records was 9AM, but actually was 11.45AM. This didn’t create much of a problem, but we had to rush after reaching Hurghada coz of our pre-booked afternoon activity. The property in Hurghada was just awesome. Realizing what all one could do just inside the property, I felt to have spent more time in Hurghada. Truly a 5 star experience. The very last day also, had to ask for room change as hotel (Pyramid Park, Giza) tried to give us a twin room. Finally, trip ended very well. Much better than I expected due to the services I received from various people and everything being planned much earlier. A big thanks to Yatharth and Mr Karam for making it a memorable trip for us. Local folks – Mr Ali (local contact), Hanny (cab driver in Cairo), other guides – thank you all. Cruise Dinner with a surprise gift on our anniversary was a lifetime experience.

    Pradeep's 10 days trip to Egypt

    Egypt. Tour agents and services were excellent and very cooperative . Cruise was excellent but service provision inside the Train was of BAD quality. Hotel room provision at Pyramis park was satisfactory and need improvement in quality of cleanliness.. Room lights and telephones were defective and not properly maintained . Dubai hotel arrangement and tour was excelantent however services of tour guide was unsatisfactory and need improvement. All flight booking except Indigo flight for Dubai mum was not good . The hot and humid weather condition restricted enjoying the tour at Egypt.
