    Dirty and hectic but absolutely full of charm. Cairo is a melting pot for Egypt and for the Middle East. Conservative and liberal. Islamic and Christian. Ancient and modern. The food here is exceptional and there is incredible atmosphere everywhere you turn. The touts and pollution might convince some to knock Cairo back a few stars but they are all ...

    The major cities of Egypt are large and chaotic, full of rushed people and gridlock traffic, making it complicated to get much rest while visiting. Escape to Siwa, the most culturally distinct area in the country, located west of Cairo in the middle of the Libyan Desert. At first glance, the land is composed of miles and miles of sand, ...

    Dahab is magical. Not as flashy as the nicer parts of Sharm El Sheikh but this is the place to chill out seaside while sitting on a carpet and enjoying a shisha or coffee. Very relaxed and intentionally Bohemian. Drugs are available here but you are strongly encouraged to avoid them or you put yourself at great risk. A nice ...

    Aswan is wonderfully pleasant and lush. The lack of good hotel options here (at the time of our visit) was a detractor but I certainly wish we had stayed more than the 24 hours we devoted here. A nice jumping off point for Abu Simbel but other nearby ruins and the spectacular Nile scenery make Aswan special.

    Esna could easily be dismissed as a riverside dump but I found this town to be incredibly charming and a nice break from all of the archaeological sights. I'm not a big fan of animal-drawn carts but this is a great way to see the city without being completely overwhelmed by the throngs of people. There is an interesting local ...

    Marsa Alam

    5 reviews

    We were a group of friends and we went to a tourist village on Marsa Alam. We enjoy ourselves on diving relax and fun. I recommend it to anyone who loves diving and egyption history because they organise turist guide on Luxor (so famous for The valley of the Queens).

    Alexandria is right on the water and the home of quite a bit of history, including the ancient library (no longer there) and the Lighthouse, one of the Seven Ancient Wonders. There's good diving, too, but I didn't get a chance to do that.

    Abu Simbel

    20 reviews

    There is very little to Abu Simbel other than the famous temples. The airport is functional and this is a reasonable place to stop for a break as you transit to / from Sudan or wait to embark on a cruise of Lake Nasser. Be aware that frequent sand storms can cause flight delays. Try to avoid tight connections.

    a place to be at the beach but not much more. "A place in Egypt but not in Egypt".

    Make no mistake, the pyramids and the Oberio here are fantastic. That said, Giza itself is a mess -- dirty and filled with touts. You need to watch your back a bit but, for the most part, the annoyances here are harmless humans and traffic.

    El Gouna

    4 reviews

    After time in Dubai, El Gouna was a breath of fresh air. Very comfortable and nice, but with a remote feel. I was impressed with the beer bottling plant, as well as the lush gardens. I didn't get a chance to go diving, but would love to return to take advantage of the water.

    Port Said

    9 reviews

    This was a stop on our cruise for some reason but I am not sure what. This is a port on the Suez although most of the boats bypass this entrance due to a faster cut-off to the Mediterranean. We walked around with nothing much to see. The beach area was quite dirty and rundown. The downtown area had far ...

    In the Sinai region of Egypt and a few hours away from the Israel border, this is a truly breathtaking area of the country. It's an area this author hesitated even writing about due to how one of kind this area is. Far less developed than Dahab, it has a unique charm that will convince you to stay far longer ...
