Places to visit in Egypt
You will never fall short of the number of places to visit in Egypt. It is a land that boasts of a glorious past and you will have plenty of places to see in Egypt that will leave you spellbound. Here is a shortlist of the three most amazing places to visit in Egypt:
Alexandria: Situated on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria is touted as the leading transportation and port hub. In the remote past, the area was considered as the crossroads of the world and that is why it explains why Alexandria is still a popular site for transactions and business with other countries. The name ‘Alexandria' has been derived from the name Alexandra the Great who founded the region in 331 BC. Today, Alexandria stands as a proud trading centre that reflects a faded glimpse of its glorious past. It has turned into a cosmopolitan city and is famous for its many cultural and historical attractions borrowed from the past.
Giza Necropolis: Visiting Egypt stays incomplete without touring the pyramids of Giza and the surrounding ancient sites. The Giza Necropolis is perched in close proximity to the southwestern suburbs of Cairo. Touted as the world's most ancient site, the necropolis manifests great sights of the pyramids, the Sphinx, and the ancient ruins. The pyramids which are one of the seven wonders in the world were built over a span of the reigns of three kings, Khufu, Khafre (Khufu's second reigning son) and his grandson Menkaure. Aside from this, you can spot a smaller series of satellite structures like temples, causeways and more.
Sharm-el Sheikh: Want to experience the cosmopolitan side of Egypt? Then come to Sharm-el Sheikh, which is popularly known for its beach resort lying at the southernmost part of the Sinai Peninsula. It is also regarded as one of the most tempting diving spots across the globe. Put a stay at one of the stunning hotels at Sharm-el Sheikh where your travel agencies can fix tours in and around Egypt by quak bikes or camel or jeeps. Do not miss the experience of snorkelling, but take a guide with you. Overnight trips to St. Catherine's Monastery and car rides to the coloured Canyon will ensure a fulfilling trip to Egypt.
Thus, of the many Egypt places to visit, these three should not be missed.
