One of the things everybody imagines about Egypt is the hot sun and the ancient treasures it provides. But in fact there is much more to savour in the land of history and culture. There is plenty to do for those who love to go on an adventure holiday, by coral reef diving or just lazing around on a beach with soft yellow sands. The days you will spend wandering round the ancient treasures will burn in the memory for a lifetime. The royal tombs buried in the Pyramids are a true wonder of the world as is the delightfully mystical Great Sphinx.
The lifeblood of Egypt however is the long African river known as The Nile. Many people would love to simply relax on its soft and golden sandy beaches and soak up the hot sun, but for many others a trip to the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx is a must do trip when in Egypt. Some of the multi-coloured coral reefs are like a natural version of an aquarium. Scuba diving in Sharm-el-Sheik provides the tourist with a theme style park which happens to be underneath the sea.
The Nile Valley is a long stretch of river where any holiday maker can go down by boat and experience the Valley of the Kings and several more temples to sightsee after you have enjoyed the Pyramids at Giza. The famous and ancient Temple of Horus is another amazing and haunting place to see on the Nile River. It has ancient shrines and two massive falcons to greet you into this piece of magical history.
The Temple of Karnak will impress the first time visitor as there are three large shrines here and as you head to the Temple of Luxor you’ll notice the hot sun has become considerably hotter and drier. There are some beautiful ancient cities to wander around in Egypt too before you take on your trip down the Nile and the capital of Cairo has bazaar (markets) where you haggle with the traders to buy some fascinating rugs or boutique items.
