A country for of mysteries, dreams, and memories – that’s what Egypt is!
If you are planning your next trip to this beautiful country, then here is the list of the top destination that you cannot afford to miss out on when in this part of the world. Without wasting too much time beating around the bush, let us have a look at those top destinations one by one –
1. Giza’s Pyramids
This ancient creation has become synonymous with Egypt. One of the seven wonders of the world, these pyramids are a symbol of the history of this land of Pharaohs. And, that’s what these tombs were built for. Guarded by the Sphinx, these pyramids are simple awe inspiring! They have been attracting visitors from all over the world for decades now.
2. Siwa Oasis
A place that was culturally isolated from Egypt until the late 19th century, Siwa Oasis has gone on to become the hottest tourist destination in the country over the recent past. You can explore the natural beauty of this town located near the Western Border of the country. Attractions like many freshwater springs, acres of palm groves and mud-built fortresses, which serve as the remnants of the city’s Greco-Roman past are a feast to the eyes.
3. Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings
The third name on the list that we have for you is the Memorial Temple of Hatshepsut, and Kanrak Temple, which is fame for the Valley of the Kings. Located across the Nile-side town Luxor, the temple used to be the powerbase of the new Kingdom Pharaohs. Home to the bundle of tombs and temples, which have been many a time called the biggest open air museum in the world, it is definitely a place you cannot afford to miss out on.
4. Abu Simbel
In a country full of temples, this is something that stands out. The great temple of Ramses II, it is garlanded with gigantic statues guarding the building, and a scrumptiously decorated interior creates an instant impact. A place known for its astounding megalithic work, Abu Simbel has often been called an incredible feat. An interesting thing about the place is that it was moved from its original setting by a UNESCO operation during the 1960s in order to save it from getting submerged under water because of the Aswan Dam.
5. White Desert
The best we have saved for last – White Desert of Egypt! The surreal chalk mountains create a snowy wonderland, which looks simply majestic! Find yourself lost in this arid sand land that looks completely like the sets of a Hollywood science fiction movie. A place for adventure and fun, White Desert is a truly unique experience which you must visit!
