Reasons to visit Egypt

great pyramids of giza egypt

Grandeur of the Giza Necropolis

No visit to Egypt is complete without experiencing the spectacle of the pyramids. The Giza Necropolis takes in the Great Sphinx and three pyramids – including the Great Pyramid of Giza, the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence.

These giant structures have withstood the desert winds since 2,500 BC. Designed as lavish tombs for pharaohs, they’re feats of ancient engineering that have to be seen to be believed.

Discover the Valley of the Kings

The gateway to the fabled Valley of the Kings, Luxor is built on the site of the ancient city of Thebes – the pharaohs’ seat of power for centuries.

Explore the temples of Karnak and Luxor, then head across the river to the west bank of the Nile to see the twin sandstone statues known as the Colossi of Memnon. Here you will also find the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. These sacred sites contain temples, tombs and an array of archaeological wonders.

Luxor is a great place to begin a cruise along the Nile, or to enjoy a sunset trip on a felucca – a traditional wooden sailing boat.

Wonder at the Red Sea Riviera

Despite its name, the tranquil waters of the Red Sea are in fact a rich blue. Visitors come for the sun-swept beaches and breathtaking dive spots on the Red Sea Riviera, a collection of cities stretching along the western shores of the coast.

Snorkel in the shallow waters along the beachfront and marvel at the underwater world, where reef sharks bathe, abandoned wrecks rust, and elusive dugong graze on the seabed.

Flying to Egypt: FAQs

Where should I fly to in Egypt?

Cairo (CAI) is extremely well-connected and can serve as a gateway to the wider nation or be enjoyed as a destination in its own right.

Do I need to carry my passport in Egypt?

Most visitors to Egypt tend to take between 10 days and two weeks to explore the country. How long you spend in the country depends entirely on your list of must-do activities. Two weeks should be enough to enjoy the key sites, but you could easily spend far longer.
