A new classic, this family-friendly adventure was featured by Peter Greenberg & Lonely Planet.
Towering between massive desert dunes and an endless sea of sand stands the Great Pyramid at Giza, a worldwide mystery of ancient human engineering. Dubbed one of the seven ancient wonders of the world, this massive monument is truly a sight one must see to believe. It is one of many awesome enigmas that lies in the sands of Egypt.
Explore the ancient world
Egypt contains the remnants of one of the oldest civilizations on record. Perfectly preserved artifacts, hieroglyphs and antiquities originating from a time period thousands of years old make this archaic destination a must-see for historians or any traveler curious about the age-old marvels of mankind's past.
The pyramids and the Sphinx are two of the most iconic pieces of Egyptian architecture. Looming over the desert sands, the pyramids remain a mystery to modern architects and scholars who still have not agreed on one theory as to how they were constructed over 4,000 years ago. The peak of the Great Pyramid of Giza reaches over 450 feet into the sky, with a base stretching over 750 feet wide on each side. The time it must have taken the ancient people of Egypt to build the pyramids is perplexing, and gazing upon the enormous structures is sure to inspire curiosity and wonder in any visiting traveler. Seeing the pyramids from the back of a camel can make the experience more authentic and is a widely popular tourist activity.
There are dozens of other historic sites to explore in Egypt, including tombs and temples. See the curious carvings in the mountainside Abu-Simbel Temples. Many tourists agree that these larger-than-life sculptures are some of the most breathtaking pieces of art from years ago. Walk through the catacombs of Com el-Shouqafa, where winding hallways tunnel down into the bedrock of this Egyptian and Greco-Roman themed tomb. According to some historians, this catacomb contained over 300 mummies.
The ancient sites of Egypt are numerous and awe inspiring. Journeying to this land steeped in history as well as mystery is a perfect way to cross an item off of the bucket list. It is enough to fuel endless amounts of inspiration and wonder while learning about one of the most intuitive past civilizations. This is a trip history lovers and archeology enthusiasts cannot afford to miss out on.
Leisure in the desert lands
A trip to Egypt is not all about learning about the wonders of the distant past. There are dozens of relaxing activities to take advantage of in this vacation hotspot. Hit the coastline and relax at one of Egypt's many exotic and beautiful beaches, or spend the day out on the green at one of 20 world class Egyptian golf courses. Tour the ruins by day, and start the night with a drink at one of the many poolside bars at an Egyptian hotel. Go for a boat tour on the Nile River or go scuba diving. Try parasailing and take in the gorgeous panoramic view of Egypt from the heights of the wild blue yonder. The options are endless in Egypt.
Tourists eager to see more ancient wonders of the world can make the Great Wall of China their next destination. The architectural majesty of this immense stone phenomena is more than comparable to the colossal Egyptian pyramids. Do not stop there either. The Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven in Beijing are more historic oddities that are sure to delight tourists and spark anyone's imagination and sense of wonder.
