The land of the pharaohs is a destination that has fascinated travelers since antiquity. Egypt is the "Gift of the Nile" that the Greek historian Herodotus described when he visited in the 5th Century BC. There are not enough words to describe the magnitude and ingenuity of the Ancient Egyptian Engineering and the stunning colorful religious scenes carved in the temples and tombs -- you have to see it for yourself.
Travel Tip: As a Muslim country, the locals are conservative, but you will soon find that they are also genuine and helpful. The US dollar and the Euro are strong and go a long way.
Travel Tip: Renting a car is not really an option: The country roads are extremely busy, most of the directions are in Arabic and traffic lights are a rare occurrence. In order to travel, the Egyptian Tourism Board must issue you a road travel permit. In the countryside, there are security checkpoints every few kilometers.
Travel tip: If the purpose of your vacation is to party, reserve an all-inclusive resort in Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada (Egypt's popular resort towns), where you can find trendy bars and nightclubs in a short distance from your resort.
