Our Egypt tour was a memorable and fascinating journey.We enjoyed every minute of our stay in this wonder land call EGYPT. It has been always a country of tourism. It has something to offer everyone, be it young or old.
I had been always captivated by this wonderland. As a kid I studied about its ancient civilization, the mighty Nile, the pyramids, great sphinx, mummification and its temples. Its ancient ruins, such as those of Memphis,Thebes, Karnak , Valley of King and Valley of Queens are a significant focus of archaeological study, and artifacts from these sites
are now displayed in major museums around the world.But never did I think that one day I will be able to see and enjoy it myself. Thanks to my dear dear hubby for organizing the tour.
EGYPT, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a country mainly in North Africa, with the Sinai Peninsula forming a land bridge in Southwest Asia. Egypt is thus a transcontinental country, and a major power in Africa and the Mediterranean region and the Islamic world.It is regarded as one of the most populous countries in Africa and the Middle East.
Apart from its pyramids, sphinx and temples it has much more to offer. It
is part of the Holy Land, and its Coptic and Islamic Monuments are also
well-known, It is also known for its Safari Tourism, Therapeutic Tourism, its
Oases, Nature and Desert treks, great Scuba diving, golf, fishing and bird expeditions.One may choose to relax on the wondrous Egypt Red Sea
or Sinai coasts, take in the high culture of Cairo, or even leisurely float
down the Egyptian Nile on a luxurious river boat. The choices are many.
We visited the old city of Alexandria, Cairo (a city which needs no introduction), Aswan, Agalika Island, Abu Simbel and took a 5-star deluxe Nile Cruise (which started from Aswan..took us to Edfu, Kom Ombo, West Bank, East Bank and Luxor). Though we included a major part of
Egypt, there is much more to be visited. May be some day will visit again.
