Egypt - A sandstorm of ecstasy

You want to know
We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us

The weather here passes like sand through your fingers, and you still have not satisfied the hunger of even a small part of the cult of exoticism, which you secretly confess and which you have built reading the "Book of the Dead", or while soaking up the mysticism of the Egyptian hieroglyphs. If you are not afraid of the curse of Tutankhamun, the power of the Egyptian amulets or the whispering prayers of the Holy scarab, then pack your bags and go through the portal of time to touch an ancient world of more than 5000 years. However old, the Egyptian universe still continues to rotate, preserved like a mummy wrapped in sand bandages and in boiling hot sun. Yes, the sand's hot, but you will get used to it. You're not even going to pay attention to it when you're facing the world's miracle. That's right – the Pyramids of Giza. You have the privilege to get to know the majestic granite and  limestone structures, to peek and feel the cold that springs from the Egyptian tombs, to enjoy the last remnants of marble decorations, or to unleash the papyrus of your emotions and to plunge in hugs of the unknown in some of the infinitely long tunnels. 
A tip - leave something for your imagination to keep it alive! After enjoying each of the three pyramids at Giza – of Khufu, Hefren and Mikerin, you can complete your pyramidal journey at Giza with the statue of the Great Sphinx. If you always hear, though quietly, the whispering and the spells of the Egyptian kings, consider this as a call to dissolve the massive golden gates of the Valley of the Kings in the city of Luxor. Although you have a chance to get acquainted with a small part of all over 60 tombs, this does not mean that this is the spell of Egypt. On the contrary, your consciousness will be lost in the floating passion of the ancient civilization and will resurface only when you finish your historical journey. And that's not going to happen before you visit Cairo, the capital of Egypt. The first thing that will capture your attention are the countless architectural wonders.

Wherever you turn, you will be amazed by the majestic mosques and old minarets, from the centuries-old prints of the cultures that have resided in these lands. Surely you should soak up the atmosphere of the religious temples "Al Azhar", "Al Hakim", "Ibn Tulun", "Sinan Pasha", "Amir" and the Mosque of Muhammad Ali. We know you can't wait to ask if you can see a mummy? The Cairo Egyptian museum thought of that whim of yours. Tombs, sarcophaguses, attire of the pharaohs, Egyptian masks and jewels, and exquisitely preserved mummies add that glamour that you have dreamt about from your arrival. You must complete your book with memories of Egypt with the stone statues of pharaoh Amenhotep, the Pyramid of Djoser, the Citadel of Saladin, the ancient fortress of Babylon, and the Hanging Coptic Church. If you have some time left, you have to sink into one of the biggest bazaars in the world - Han El Khalil. Only here you will feel like God Osiris, sailing a boat on the River Nile, studying the underwater riches in the Red Sea, tearing  the sand dunes during an exciting safari adventure or riding a camel while learning the exotic treasures. If you are an avid fan of water sports, Egypt is your chance to become a world champion in  kites, or windsurfing. In Egypt there is also a place for fans of the waves and pristine beaches. Take a breath and sip of that of beauty, because this moment will be a reality once in your life. And if you're curious about a taste of traditional Egyptian cuisine, don't hesitate to try kušari and falafel. Just to let you know that the Egyptians deify spices, and you can experience the efficacy of your taste buds by tasting their food. Are you ready to go?

FAQs about Egypt

Can we use credit and debit cards in Egypt?

Payment with Visa and MasterCard is possible in a large number of hotels and restaurants, but it is not advisable to pay with cards because of the high bank charges. You'd better bring cash for payment.

The water in Egypt is potable, and it is not recommended for drinking because it contains very high levels of chlorine that can cause discomfort.

ATMs are available in most major hotels and in front of banks in the more developed cities. Charging your card before heading to Egypt is a good choice if you are worried about carrying all your money in cash.

It is not safe to travel only in the remote desert areas, and in most cases attacks happen mainly against local police or governmental buildings, and very rarely in tourist areas. 

Egypt is a country with a rather warm climate. We recommend wearing shorts and a T-shirt to feel comfortable and not too hot.
