Egypt is more than a land of pyramids. It’s a land of dreams too with a rich history and vibrant culture. The holy abode of the most enduring historical monuments on Earth, Egypt stands as an unforgettable travel destination. A treasure trove of natural as well as man-made splendor Egypt has been a witness of political turmoil in recent times. However, with all the sores and gashes, she still bears the magnificence of its timeless treasures, which are enough to captivate the travelers so that they can experience something they would cherish for a lifetime. No wonder, a trip to this country has all the potential to provide the audience with a thrilling experience.
However, for the visitors, there are two Egypts- for some people, Egypt is all about the river Nile and the happening and bustling life of Cairo while for the other is the Egypt of the Red Sea. The Egypt of Nile beckons you with the happening medieval bazaars, Sphinxes, river cruises and Agatha Christie-era exoticism. And for those, who are planning for a trip to the Egypt of Red Sea will fall in love with the modern resorts especially catering to the sun-seekers and scuba divers.
Most of the ancient treasures of Egypt were built during the time of the pharaohs. The Pyramids of Giza (the sole survivors of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World); the lotus-columned temples of Luxor and Karnak; the Valley of the Kings; Aswan and the temples of Abu Simbel: strung along the Nile, and many other architectural splendors have drawn visitors for centuries. They represent a lasting legacy of one of the most fabled periods of human history.
Loaded with amazing attractions Egypt is full of character, color, and fortitude.
Top Places for Must Visit in Egypt
When Should You Visit Egypt
While weather plays a crucial role to determine the best time to visit the country, it’s usually a year-long touring destination. The best time, however, is from October to April, when temperatures are at their most pleasant. However, December and January are the peak seasons, considering the extremely pleasant weather. But, during these seasons, the iconic sights like the Pyramids of Giza, the Temples of Luxor and Abu Simbel can get uncomfortably crowded. Also, rates at Red Sea resorts are at their most expensive. So, if you have plans to make the most of your trip to Egypt. Plan it essentially during the off-season. Off-seasons like June to September make tours and accommodation significantly cheaper. But, the daytime sight-seeing is difficult especially in the summer months, but you can escape the scorching heat in the coastal resorts offer some respite from the summer heat.
The Prime Takeaway
Despite its proximity to the Nile, most of Egypt is located in the desert region, which makes it hot and dry during the summer months. Quite obviously, climbing into an airless tomb on a 100-degree day can be draining, but, it doesn’t mean to visit the place without climbing the height and experience the medieval charisma of the city. Several top attractions are located in southern Egypt, where it is even hotter than Cairo. So, plan your trip mostly in the balmy winters to experience the city.Share this tour
