Known for its magnificent Great Pyramids that are architectural feats, Egypt’s enduring history makes it one of the longest existing countries in the world. With millennial-old monuments such as the Great Sphinx of Giza, the last surviving icon from the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the Valley of the Kings and Queens, an ancient burial site, you’ll feel as if you were transported back to the time of the Pharaohs.
Apart from its incredible constructions, Egypt is also rich with culture; visit Khan El-Khalili, the country’s biggest and most colourful bazaar, and learn how to cook traditional fare from a local family. A cruise down the Nile River, the longest river in the world, will also allow you to soak in the amazing sights at a leisurely pace. Having recently recovered from a tumultuous period, the country is now ready for its turn in the spotlight with the launch of its still-nameless new capital and the opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum, which will be the largest archaeological museum in the world.
