Travel guide: Egypt

Updated on October 5, 2011

Egypt still remains one of the top destinations for tourist and expats alike from around the world as the destination of destinations. Hundreds of thousands of people flock to this ancient mystical culture that ruled the world for thousands of years. They are there to see the remnants of what is left and remember those who have sacrificed much for the sake of mankind.  The echoes of those who came before can still be heard as they whisper there secrets along every street that you travel.

There are many opportunities to learn about Egypt through web articles, pictures and books. But, visiting this wonderful culture is a once in a lifetime excursion everyone must do. This country holds the most artifacts on world history than any other country and is one of the locations where the birth of mankind is said to have happened. There is a tremendous opportunity to learn, grow and have fun on your next holiday to Egypt.

When most people think of Egypt as a holiday paradise they automatically assume it is out of there budget. Well this is just not true there are many opportunities to enjoy Egypt even on a small budget. Then when you come to Egypt once you will visit again and again or if you’re really adventurous then you might even become a globetrotting expat and choose to live here. No matter what you decide there are ample opportunities to learn and grow in the rich culture of Egypt.

Many people start there incredible journey visiting Egypt in its historical capitol of Cairo. There are many things to do and see while visiting this wonderful city. You can start by walking the main broad ways where you will experience the street markets that sell virtually anything you can image. Then as you make your way down the main thoroughfare you can stop for some culture heritage at the famous Cairo museum where you can see artifacts dating back thousands of years or take a risk and look into king tut Tomb. Then when you exit all along there are hundreds of monuments and special attractions for you to enjoy.

If you don’t really want the big city flair from there you can visit a smaller city with just as much excitement. The city of Sharm El Sheikh can be a great alternative to Cairo. It is located north along the red sea almost too where Moses parted it from the bible. You can relive a part of biblical history and see how the Hebrews escaped certain demise at the hands of the pharos army. Also if you are the adventurous type take a dive into the red river and see some of the world’s original coral reefs that have been protected by the Egyptian government.

Another major tourist destination for Egyptian holidays is the city of Taba Egypt. This is one of the few beach cities along the Mediterranean that offer exclusive dining and resort in the lap of luxury. It has some of the world’s most well know shops, dining and spectacular accommodations. Of course if you’re on a budget best to stay away because you will want to burst out of that budget if you stay here. Don’t say I did not warn you : ) .. But no matter what your destination in Egypt it will be the best holiday or vacation that you have ever had and if you a returning again to Egypt make sure you check out some of the other monuments and historical buildings in the west in the valley of kings. I have no doubt you will want to come back and most likely will so enjoy your stay in this wonderful country

    Egypt is one of the top destinations on my list. I have long wanted to see all of the ancient ruins because I'm a history nerd, and Sharm El Sheikh looks absolutely beautiful.

    The Cairo museum with the solid gold sarcophagus, the insane traffic, the cheap shopping, the constant requests for tips.... :-)))
