Egypt Tours - Places to Visit – Travel Advice
Egypt Tourism is becoming increasingly fashionable. The Nile is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the world. Visiting temples, tombs, pyramids, is the dream of thousands of tourists.
However, the idea of traveling on your own is an option that few people might be thinking, the best way to discover a country, its culture, its people.
Where to go?
The pyramid of Giza - Its dimensions are impressive: 146.59 m, 230 m wide. Following up a bit by his side, penetrate its interior. A fluctuating torchlight we discover the walls, perfectly smooth, as befits the burial of an incarnation of the god Ra. After depositing the sarcophagus in the burial chamber, the runner will be blinded and concealed, to prevent theft. The pyramid contains a more false burial chamber.
Elephantine Island - where you can see the remains of temples and Satet deJnum and his son and a Nilometer Anukis, system for measuring the flooding of the Nile River
In the downtown area do not miss the Citadel, Coptic neighborhood (where admission is free to all churches and synagogues) the numerous mosques, the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and the tourist market of Khan el-Khalili ... It is also recommended visit Dahshur, Memphis and Saqkkara. Of course do not miss the pyramids!
Temple of Karnak - A huge temple inside which we can find the famous giant beetle to be given 10 laps I remember ... as they say is good luck ... I find myself attracted much attention within the temple a huge bar ... your taking yourself a Coke in a bar that attaches to a stone engraved with a zillion years ago ... That only happens in Egypt gentlemen ...
Colossi of Memnon -People say you hear "music" when the air passes through them
Temple of Medinet Habu - Famous for its wide columns filled with engravings very well preserved.
Temple of Edfu and Kom Ombo - I do not keep very good memories of this temple, not because he lacked beauty but because it was crowded, in fact decide to step out without seeing the whole immense burden we entered ... Within it you can see the sacred boat
If you decide to do it anyway, do not miss the granite quarry, the New Nubian Museum, Tombs of the Nobles, or File Islands, New Kalabsha, of Sehel, Elephantine and Botanical Gardens.
