HAVE YOU EVER ASKED YOURSELF, WHY EGYPT?
You probably first encountered Egypt during the schooling days when we learnt all about the pyramids, gods with dogs for heads and gruesome mummification methods! There’s no doubt that Ancient Egypt has long been considered one of the most important and interesting civilization in history. Today, Egypt remains just as interesting as so many of the old structures and monuments still exist. Not only that but Egypt is rather special for other reasons; it has some incredible beaches, wildlife, cuisine and weather. So if you needed any more reason why
Egypt should be your next holiday destination, take a look:
- They have got the Pyramids
Many flock to Egypt just for the pyramids. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the most well-known and is the only remaining survivor of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can take a camel ride out to visit the pyramids close up and for those who don’t mind the dark, you can also go inside. Truly breath-taking, these old tombs will stay with you for the rest of your life.
- The Biblical Mount Sinai
This is indeed Mount Sinai of Biblical fame. According to the Bible and Christian faith this is where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God.
- There’s the Nile …
The Nile River is the longest river in the world and Egypt is very proud of that fact! The Nile provides some great days out; take a guided tour for the day to see the various river wildlife. You might even spot a crocodile…
