The old saying that Egypt is the gift of the Nile still rings true: there would be no fertile ground, no food, and far less energy without the river. While the lives of people are increasingly physically separated from the water, the Nile still plays an incredibly strong role. The river is also, luckily for tourists, the perfect place to see many of the most beautiful ancient monuments, which is one reason why a Nile cruise is still such a popular way to travel.

Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt

Egypt brings out the adventurer in us all, with sand-covered graves, austere pyramids, and towering Pharaonic temples. Visit the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, where the tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered, and see the glittering finds in the Cairo Egyptian Museum. Jump off a Nile boat to visit Dendara, Edfu, or one of the other temples on the waterside, cross Lake Nasser to see the masterpiece of Ramses II at Abu Simbel, or trek into the desert to discover the traces of outposts of Roman trade. You never know-your donkey may come across another discovery because that is the way many previous discoveries have been made.

The History of Cairo

The History of Cairo

An empire from Al Qahira-Cairo, the Triumphant City, once ruled Egypt. There are towering minarets and medieval schools and mosques in the metropolis, some of the finest architecture of medieval Islam. At the same time, the native Christians of Egypt, the Copts, have carried on their rituals linked back to the time of the pharaohs in many ways, such as the liturgical language of the church and the traditional calendar. Get a glimpse of history in the early churches of Cairo and in remote monasteries in the desert.

Places to visit in Egypt

Aswan

Aswan

Aswan, set on the winding curves of the Nile, is Egypt's most peaceful city. This is the ideal place to rest and unwind for a few days and soak up the chilled-out atmosphere, backed up by orange-hued dunes. Take the river ferry across to Elephantine Island and walk through the lively streets of the villages of the Nubians. Race your camel to St. Simeon's desert monastery on the East Bank. Or just drink endless cups of tea while watching the lateen-sailed feluccas drift by at one of the riverboat restaurants. There are plenty of historic sites here and numerous nearby temples, but one of Aswan's most famous things to do is just kick back and watch the life of the river pass by.

White Desert

White Desert

The White Desert, where surreally formed chalk mountains have produced what looks like a snowy wonderland in the middle of the arid sand, is Egypt's kookiest natural wonder. With blindingly white boulders and iceberg-like pinnacles, the landscapes here look like something from a science fiction movie. This is the ultimate strange playground for desert fans and explorers, while anyone who's had their fill of temples and tombs will love this stunning natural scenery.

Siwa Oasis

Siwa Oasis

Way out west, Siwa is a calm tonic to the hustle and bustle of the cities of Egypt. Surrounded by date palm plantations and numerous freshwater springs, this beautiful little oasis is one of the most picturesque locations in the Western Desert. The city is built around the remains of a massive citadel of mud-brick that dominates the view. This is a perfect place for a few days to wind down and go slow, as well as being an excellent base from which to plan adventures in the surrounding desert.

Alexandria

Alexandria

Alexandria is the most European of the cities in Egypt and has a past that not many others can equal. Established for most of its existence by Alexander the Great, home of Cleopatra, and a renegade Mediterranean city of razzmatazz, this seaside city has an enticing day-by-day atmosphere that can't be beaten. While there are few historical remains of its illustrious past today, featuring in songs and books, this is a place made for aimless wandering along the Corniche seashore, café-hopping, and souk shopping.

St. Catherine's Monastery

St. Catherine's Monastery

St. Catherine's, one of the world's oldest monasteries, stands at the foot of Mount Sinai, where Moses is believed to have received the Ten Commandments. An impressive array of religious iconography, sculpture, and manuscripts (some of which can be seen in the on-site museum) as well as the burning bush are housed in this desert monastery. A journey to St. Catherine's also requires a hike up Mount Sinai to see the sunrise or sunset for most tourists here. For the simple route, take the camel path or, if you want better views, climb the popular Steps of Repentance.

South Sinai

South Sinai

The South Sinai Area on the Sinai Peninsula is Egypt's center for beach fun. Sharm el-Sheikh is a European-style resort full of entertainment options, luxurious hotels, foreign restaurants, and luggage. Dahab is a low-key beach city with the heart of budget tourists, as well as about desert excursions and adventures as they are around the sea. There are the bamboo hut retreats up the coast, between the port town of Nuweiba and the border town of Taba, offering full get-away-from-it-all respites from life. South Sinai is all about diving, anywhere you want. The Red Sea is one of the world's top diving destinations, and most of the best diving sites are located in the South Sinai region.

Thistlegorm Dive Site

Thistlegorm Dive Site

Another world as interesting as the temples and tombs on land is below the Red Sea's level. There is also a glut of shipwrecks that have sunk in the Red Sea Gulf of Gubal and Gulf of Aqaba, among the many coral reefs off the coast. The most famous of all the wrecks are the Thistlegorm, an English WWII cargo ship that was on its way to resupply British troops when it was bombed in 1941 by the Germans. Today, owing to the large cargo of vehicles, motorbikes, and WWII memorabilia that can be seen both littered on the sea bed around the wreck and inside the ship itself, the site is considered by divers as one of the top five wreck dives in the world. Dive boat trips from both Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada to the wreck are arranged.

Nile Cruising

Nile Cruising

The Nile describes Egypt. For many tourists, a multi-day cruise that saw the emergence of the Pharaonic period on this famous waterway is a highlight of their trip to Egypt. The most relaxing way to see the temples that stud the banks of the river on the route between Luxor and Aswan is also to cruise the Nile, plus sunrise and sunset over the date-palm-studded river banks, backed by sand dunes, is one of the quietest views of Egypt.

Q & A

Which is the best month to visit Egypt?

Egypt's best time to visit is from September to April. Also, Christmas, New Year, and Easter are very common times to visit, so booking early is wise.

Is it expensive to visit Egypt?

Traveling through Egypt is comparable to traveling through Southeast Asia in price. Without investing a lot of money, you can see and do a lot in Egypt if you are a budget traveler. And you can do so without investing a small fortune if you like the idea of adding upscale hotels and a cruise on the Nile River.

How many days do you need in Egypt?

Planning to spend at least 2 full days there to get the most out of the trip if you make the journey out to the Red Sea. So, if you're on the Red Sea, that means you're going to be in Egypt for at least 7-8 days in total. It's pretty common to fly anywhere from 5-8 days to Egypt, including all the way from North America.
