Best Highlights To See While Traveling To Egypt

Posted by on March 24, 2020 in Travel and Entertainment with 0 Comments

When you travel to Egypt, you will get the chance to experience the ancient culture and also immerse yourself in medieval Cairo. You will also get the chance to watch changing landscape from the Nile Cruises 2020 while relaxing on the deck, along with some mouth-watering cuisine served by the Egyptians. However, to make your Nile cruise vacation filled with more excitement and fun, make sure to pay a visit to all the highlighted places in Egypt.

The highlights of Egypt that you must see and experience

There are several well-known places in Egypt that are a “must visit” for travelers. Listed below are some of the popular highlights of Egypt.

1. Explore and learn by visiting the Egyptian Museum in Cairo:

The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo will enable you to see the ancient ruins of Egypt. You will also learn about the complex system of beliefs like the rise, and fall of sun worship. The museum is located in Tahir Square and has a total of 100,000 ancient artifacts. The most famous content you will encounter is the tomb of Tutankhamun, which was excavated by Howard Carter in the 1920s. The young pharaoh’s death mask that is embedded with gold and blue lapis lazuli is something to watch out for.

2. Get to see the pyramids at Dahshur, Saqqara, and Giza:

The country of Egypt houses the three most important pyramid fields, namely Saqqara, Giza, and Dahshur. Saqqara is known to be the oldest among the three and it uses to be the necropolis of the country’s ancient capital Memphis and is home to the stepped pyramid of pharaoh Zoser. To reach Dahshur, it will take around 50-minutes from Cairo, where you will come to see partially created designed, and the fully constructed pyramids that can be seen in Giza.

3. Enjoy cruising the Nile:

Apart from the pyramids, there are many ancient archaeological sites in Egypt, which you will find clustered around the Nile river. When you take the Nile riverboat cruise from Luxor to Aswan, you will see the riverbank landscape that has transformed into desert dunes from urban sprawl. You will also come across the scrubby vegetation, which gives way to the farmland, papyrus reeds and tropical forests that benefit from the fertile silt of the Nile.

4. Pay a visit to the temples in Karnak and Luxor:

Luxor is known to be a modern city in Egypt, but between the shops and roads, there is a huge temple complex. The temple is solely dedicated to the Ancient Egyptian Amun, along with his wife and son. The temple of Karnak is also located in Luxor, and it is also bigger. The Karnak temple was also linked with the Luxor temple through a sphinx-lined avenue.

5. Get to discover the Nubian culture in Aswan:

The riverboat cruise will meet its end in Aswan, which is a sleepy and pretty town. The Nile river meets the mighty Sahara-desert, and you will come face-to-face with the Nubian people who live in the south. Aswan’s Nubian museum is known to be a lesser-known collection of Egypt but it is a great hidden delight. Since the majority of the Nubian village was destroyed by the flood caused by Lake Nasser, so the photographic display of Aswan in the museum will provide you with a clear image of how Aswan used to look like before.

Final words!

If you are very much interested to travel to the beautiful and history-filled Egypt, then the above-mentioned highlights are something that you must visit and include in your trip.
