Try something different this year and embark on a luxurious river Nile cruise. Wind your way through the waters of Egypt, taking in the beautiful landscape and iconic monuments on your journey. An Egyptian holiday will surprise you as there is something for everyone to enjoy. Here is a list of the top five things to experience while on your Egypt cruise:
1. Visit a wonder of the ancient world
The Egyptian pyramids are a sight to behold and the magnificence of their constructions is even more impressive in person. There are a vast number of pyramids to explore, but the most famous are located in Giza. A lot of mystery still surrounds the pyramids and their construction; visit them and discover the mystery for yourself.
2. Try Egyptian food and drink
Stop at one of Egypt’s many restaurants and refuel for another few hours of exploring. A tourist’s visit is incomplete without sampling an Egyptian delicacy, like Gebna Makleyah, a dish which consists of oven fried cheese. Unwind after a long day, by enjoying a mint tea as you watch the sun set behind the towering pyramids.
3. Visit iconic monuments
The Great Sphinx of Giza is world renowned and is considered a masterpiece that has withstood the test of time. The mythical creature is thought to have the body of a lion and the head of a human, believed to represent the great Pharaoh Khafre.
You should also visit some Egyptian temples during your cruise holiday. The intricately constructed Karnak complex is a popular site of exploration for tourists.
4. Souvenir shopping
Bring home a little piece of Egypt to commemorate your stay in the country. A keyring of a pyramid is a small but efficient way to do this, but a Papyrus scroll would be a more thoughtful souvenir which would look excellent when framed and hung in your living room.
5. Visit the Egyptian museum
Located in Cairo, this museum is one of the largest in the country and is home to more than 120,000 items. Walk through the halls and discover numerous ancient Egyptian items that archaeologists have uncovered from tombs and temples.
