10 Fun Places to Visit in Egypt
Egypt is a very popular destination for tourist. Each year thousands of folks traverse here in the winter and the summer to experience the magic of one of the oldest civilizations on earth. There are many sites to see and things to do around the many artifacts that you come across. You can take a dip in the Nile River where thousands of years ago people lived next to it. You can visit the many artifacts and pyramids that were built on the backs of slaves for the great pharos of Egypt.

Egypt attracts many different types of vacationers and holidayers from around the world. There are opportunities for backpackers, Historical enthusiast, Historical documenters and many others. Enjoying everything that Egypt has to offer is a great way to spend that vacation.
The first choice before taking a holiday to Egypt would be to choose the season in which you would like to go. During Egypt’s winter time the best places to visit are in the southern region of Egypt. Doing a winter trip to Egypt is my best recommendation unless you like the extreme dry heat of the Egyptian summers. This will allow you to enjoy you vacation a little bit more why you explore Egypt’s countryside.
There are many different attractions in the southern half of Egypt that you absolutely must see. There are the Great Pyramids that dot the landscape and seem to almost endlessly reach up to the sky. There are great opportunities here for backpackers and adventure enthusiast as they hike and travel some of the most hostile terrain on earth. If you have your heart set on the Mediterranean coast the best time to visit would be early fall and spring for those locations you will be able to experience more without having to sit in your hotel room under a tub of ice because of the heat of summer. All year round there are attractions just some times are better than others so use your best judgment while visiting Egypt and the season in which you choose to go
Another precaution that you want to keep in mind prior to visiting this wonderful country is the health effects of a third world. The two biggest worries according to the U.S state department website on travel warning to Egypt is Dung Fever and Malaria. Egypt does have a reasonably good health care system but they are usually located in the bigger cities like Cairo. So as you travel farther the health coverage is not so good. But, use common sense and make sure you drink proper water and cover up with the proper SPF Sunblock. Keeping those tips in mind you should have no additional problems on your trip.
Most of Egypt is relatively in expensive in the way of food, transportation, and accommodations. Obviously bring enough for you to take each day of your trip in stride and always have a backup plan in case something happens and you need to access your emergency money. Make sure you keep you passports in a locked safe and use a color scanner to bring a copy with you that way you do not need to carry it around while you are sightseeing. Most of all enjoy your trip to this exotic historical country.
