Egypt is located in the northeast of Africa. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The area of today’s Egypt was once home to one of the world’s greatest civilizations, which left its mark that can be seen even today. Egypt is a country full of historical sites and fantastic museums. Egypt is also a mecca for all of you who love diving and other water activities. One of the most beautiful coral reefs can be found in the Red Sea. The greatest attraction are certainly the pyramids, which are located in Giza, near Cairo. There are many guesses, legends and stories about them around the world. What do we really know about them? I suggest you that you visit this country and find out.
In addition to Cairo, it is worth putting other egyptian cities on your travel list, for example Luxor, Abu Simbel, Alexandria, Aswan or one of the seaside destinations that are popular among tourists – Sharm el Sheikh, Hurghada or Marsa Alam. You can also take the Nile cruise.
Egypt is very affordable destination, but on the other hand it can be very challenging to travel across the country. The cheapest (but also the slowest) way to travel is via the train and bus network, but you have to be prepared for delays. There are also some other negative aspects of travel & you should be prepared in advance. The country is full of trash – the trash is everywhere. The same goes for public transport & hotels. Some hotels are filthy and so are the train, sometimes even in the first class. Many travelers have to face with food-related sickness, so it’s very important for you to have travel insurance (I mean, it’s important everywhere, but make sure that you have one!).
