Dec 29, 2021 ByDaniel Godley

Egypt remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and for good reason. The country attracts up to 15 million foreign tourists per year due to its rich history and heritage. Egyptians are known for their hospitality and their warm attitude towards visitors. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider visiting this incredible place:

Unspoiled Paradise Beaches

Egypt’s coastline stretches about 1,000 kilometers from El Alamein through Marsa Alam all the way down south on Abu Qir Bay facing the Sinai peninsula. The sea that runs along these coasts contains different beautiful shades of blue.

Ancient historical sites

In addition to having beautiful beaches, Egypt also offers amazing archaeological sites and engravings which you will be able to explore. The Pyramids, Sphinx, and many temples are all among the seven wonders of the ancient world. You can even experience sleeping like an Egyptian Pharoah inside one of these pyramids for a memorable night with total darkness and silence.

Hiking Through Deserts

Egypt has two main deserts: Sahara and the Sinai desert. Both offer great opportunities for travelers and tourists to hike across its untouched sands just like our ancestors did thousands of years before. Not saying that we should go hiking without any safety precautions, but it is definitely fun.

Diving in the most beautiful coral reefs

Egypt is known to have the best diving experience worldwide. This is due to its great underwater marine life that witnesses thousands of different species which put on a spectacular show for divers willing to explore this world just beneath their feet.

Nightlife And Entertainment

As you know, Egyptians are famous worldwide due to their passion for singing and dancing. It’s not common to find an Egyptian party without live music or at least a DJ playing Arabic or electronic music.
