Egypt, a country situated on the Northern part of Africa, is world renowned for its breathtaking monuments and ancient attractions.__________________
Of great interest is that many of the attractions found in Egypt are lined up along the great River Nile and thus taking a cruise along this world's longest river gives you a rare opportunity to see the best attractions that are found in Egypt.
Because of its many attractions, Egypt gets millions of visitors who come to see the famous pyramids, temples, the great monuments found in River Nile and many other attractions.
Pyramids are no doubt the greatest Egypt vacation attraction. The kings of Egypt are believed to have built more than 80 pyramids between 2600 BC and 1500 BC, all of which are situated close to the banks of the Nile River. The purpose of these Pyramids was to preserve carefully the bodies of rulers and other prominent royal figures whose dead bodies were wrapped and preserved as mummies and placed in the pyramid.

I have to say, this was one of the most fascinating countries I have visited! It was so different from any other country I had visited. The pyramids and the temples were very impressive. I was also very fascinated with Cairo- a very chaotic, special city! I would definetely go back, but I would like to see another lesser-known area of Egypt.

How nice to know you've reach that far. I've been wanting to visit Egypt too. I wanted to see the number of magnificent monuments, activities and historical attractions lined up along the river Nile.

Visitors are surprised to discover that those legendary pyramids are merely the tip of the archaeological iceberg. Pharaonic nations, ancient Greeks, Romans, Christians and Arab dynasties have all played their part in fashioning Egypt’s embarrassment of architectural wealth.
Cairo’s chaos whirrs around a medieval core that has remained unchanged since the founding days of Islam. Upriver, Luxor, the site of ancient Thebes, is lined with warrens of opulent burial chambers and boasts some of the most formidable monuments in all antiquity. Further south at Aswan, even more geometrically imposing temples write a testament to the power of archaic gods and omnipotent pharaohs. It is here that the Nile is best explored by ancient sail, on a felucca (Egyptian sailing boat) at the hands of the prevailing currents and winds.
Out west, Egypt’s ocean of sand stretches infinitely to the Sahara, with a handful of oases feeding solitary islands of green. Hivelike, medieval fortresses cower out here, interspersed with bubbling springs and ghostly rock formations. Meanwhile, the deep, crystal waters of the Red Sea lie brilliantly awash in coral, surrounded by an aquatic frenzy of underwater life. In the deserts of Sinai’s interior, visitors can climb the mount where God had word with Moses, and spend their remaining days in halcyon bliss at coastal Dahab’s backpacker Shangri-La.
