Going on tour through a cultural and diverse country such as Egypt is a must for all travelers and would-be travelers or holidaymakers. There is something for everyone in this place such as adventure, mystery, and fun. There are a lot of travel agencies with very good specials on their Egypt packages, so it would benefit you to contact a few of them and compare some prices on traveling fees and accommodation.
The most famous sites in Egypt that you can visit is obviously the pyramids but you should never think that that is all there is to see. The statues of the old Pharaohs and the Sphinx is really something to see and you will stand in awe of the sheer size of these magnificent and ancient structures. The Nile River is mentioned in the Bible and is a big attraction to tourists all over the world. We in South Africa are very lucky to be fairly close to this country because we do not have to travel that far to get to this beautiful country.
Another big attraction in Egypt is Mount Sinai where according to the Bible, Moses climbed up to the top where he was handed the Ten Commandments by God. You will be able to climb up the very steps that were climbed by Moses all those years ago and be surrounded by the divine atmosphere that speaks of miracles and Godly happenings. The Red Sea is also very popular among holiday goers and tourists. This is where Moses lifted his wooden stick over the waters so that they parted and the Israelites could move safely through and away from the Pharaoh and his army. Just being in that place gives you a humbling feeling and an experience that you will never forget. There are also many museums to visit in Egypt that will give you more information on the country and its culture and traditions. Interestingly, there was a news article that made the headline a couple of years ago where archaeologists claimed to have found the remains of the Pharaoh’s chariots who were submerged in the Red Sea after the Israelites reached the other side of it.
