What to See In Egypt?
Every person has different tastes. Some want to see and exlore plenty of ancient sites in the Land of the Pharaohs, others may only want to go SCUBA diving in the Red Sea at Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada. No matter what your tastes are, and no matter how young or how old you are, there are just so many Egypt tourist attractions to choose from.
Of course, we highly recommend that you visit at least a few ancient monuments such as the Giza Pyramids; the Valley of Kings; Karnak Temple complex; the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, and the two magnificent rock-cut temples of Pharaoh Rases the Great at Abu Simbel.

What to Pack for Egypt?
If you are looking for tips or some advice about what to pack for Egypt, our recommendation would be that you should try to avoid packing any unnecessary items. For example, Egypt is a hot country, so there is no need for you to pack in a lot of warm clothing. It is however advisable to pack in at least one pair of long pants and perhaps a lightweight jacket that you can wear in the evenings if need be. Certain parts of the country can get quite cool in the evenings, and if you any tours that include camping it the desert, then some warm clothing is essential.
We also recommend that you pack in some sunscreen lotion; a wide-brimmed hat; a pair of sunglasses; some lightweight cotton tops, and a comfortable pair of shoes.
