A beautiful country linking northeast Africa to the Middle East, is full of the most astonishing culture, dating back to the pharos and over millennia-old monuments, and the most amazing views, nature and culture you will ever see. Egypt is a great example of the meeting point between the ancient world and it’s remnants and the modern world we live in. With it’s hot and desert climate, it’s amazing to see how many beautiful shore-cities, beaches and of course the magnificent fertile Nile make this country a must visit.

Pyramids of Giza

Lets start with the obvious, the Pyramids of Giza. The only surviving monuments of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a trip to Egypt is not complete without seeing this spectacle. Originally built as tombs for ancient Egyptian pharos and kings throughout three generations of pharaohs, guarded by the large Sphinx and surrounded by various temples the pyramids are situated not far from the suburbs of the city of Cairo therefore its not a hassle getting there. The beauty of this place is the magnitude of the pyramids, the understanding of how old they are and how they were built and the fact that archeologists are still researching them. Tours and guides are always available nearby, and of course a great photo-op!

Cairo

The beautiful capital of Egypt, ancient and lively city on the mouth of the Nile River, full of rich and long history and of course full of fun things to do and see. Cruises up the Nile River with a view to the Giza Pyramids, the famous Egyptioan Museum of Tharir Square, and of course amazing street vendors and restaurants with amazing authentic food. Cairo is also filled with amazing markets and nightclubs. There aren’t specific clubs for the gay community, however it is very modern and accepting and a must visit!

Luxor

Going down south the Nile River, on the eastern bank of the river is a wonderful city of Luxor. At Luxor you can find the ancient Thebes, which is the ancient pharaoh’s capital at the height of their power during the 11th and 16th centuries BC.  it is filled with ancient monuments, temples and on the west bank of the river are the beautiful temples and tombs of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens. Because of the high tourism in Luxor, there are many markets and shops to visit, restaurants and clubs, but we really recommend to befriend the locals and not to get into haggling situations with the merchants, they can get feisty.

Dahshur

A city located 40 kilometers south of Cairo on the west bank of the Nile River. The city is compared to Cairo and Saqqara but it is much more relaxed and isolated, therefore the visit to the large pyramids is much easier from here. The Pyramids that you may see in this location are the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid which are from the 3rd century BC. Since the city is more isolated, the visit to the pyramids is much less of a hassle and definitely faster and easier.

Aswan

The most southern city in Egypt, located on the northern part of Lake Nasser. The city also has some beautiful temples to visit such as the temples of Philae and Kabasha and the Sun Temple of Ramses II at Abu Simel all the way in the south.

Siwa Oasis

Located all the way on the western border of Egypt, the city remained culturally isolated until the late 19th century, however today it became a very popular travel destination. In Siwa Oasis you may find many freshwater springs, palm groves, beautiful history and archeological finds such as the mud-built fortresses and remnants of the city’s Greco-Roman past. It is truly like stepping back in time and seeing how life was like in the ancient times, amazing!

Hurghada

Located next to the Red Sea, was once a small fishing village, however it became a very popular destination in Egypt as a beautiful resort town. Not it is almost unrecognizable from it’s past life because of the vibrant and lively atmosphere. It is very relaxing, full of hotels and also a great place to go diving for those who love to dive.

Alexandria

Saving the biggest for last, Alexandria is Egypt’s leading port and transportation city, located on the coast of the Mediterranean sea. Taking it’s name after Alexander the Great that founded the city back in 331 BC, it was once the crossroads of the world. Alexandria suffered many earthquakes in the 14th century which destroyed libraries with over half a million books and many historic sites, however today there are still some remnants of these amazing accomplishments and history of the ancient world. Alexandria became a very glorious cosmopolitan with a lot of restaurants, clubs , museums and a very vibrant culture, and definitely a must visit city for it’s mixture of history and culture.
