Egypt (Mystery Land)
Egypt is an ancient Republic of the Arab Republic of North Africa. Most of the country is located in Africa. Most of Egypt’s desert is desert. The Nile divides the country into two unequal parts. Most of the people of Egypt live in the Nile Valley and in the islands. Cairo is the largest city and capital in the country.
The visa system in Egypt is similar to Thailand / Malaysia. Agent visa fees are also lower. 1 / 4th of every person. It takes 3-5 days.
There are 2 flights to Bangladesh from Dhaka to Egypt. Emirates and Kuwait Airlines (Layout time and fares of other airlines are very high, so not comfortible). Emirates Transit is Dubai and Kuwait Airlines Kuwait. I cut Emirates tickets. My routes were Dhaka to Cairo, Cairo to Dubai, and Dubai to Dhaka. Ticket prices are Tk. Kuwait Air’s ticket price is lower than Emirates’. Saudi Air can also be tried.
Upon arriving at the Cairo airport, we rented a taxi and left for our already booked hotel. There are two popular places to stay in Cairo. ১. Cairo City II. Giza City.
The best place to stay in Cairo City is in the vicinity of the Nile. And if you want to be in the vicinity of the pyramid, you have to stay in Giza.
We chose the La Meridian Pyramid Hotel and it was in Giza. Our room was a pyramid view. The feeling of seeing ‘The Great Pyramid’ from the room was absolutely amazing! The hotel confirms it from booking.com while in the rental country. There is a difference of hotel rentals in Cairo.
Giza is a city in a desert old building. Modernity is still not so much here. Although the roads are wide. In this case, the city of Cairo is modern and exotic!
Must see in Cairo:
The main viewing pyramid was in Cairo. The pyramids include ‘The Great Pyramid’, ‘The Sphinx’, ‘Memphis’ and ‘Saqqara’. Tickets will have to be booked in each location.
There is also an ‘Egyptian Museum’ (ticket price 5 BC). This museum contains all the archeological artifacts of the mysterious Egypt. Original mummy, King’s furniture, Tutankhamine’s used gold chairs, beds, swords / knives. There is more Royal Mummy! Where you can see the king-queen’s mummy. Here ‘Remesiss II’ means Pharaoh’s mummy! For this you will have to spend an extra ticket (3pm). It is forbidden to take pictures. The curves are checked. If you still want to take pictures, you will have to pay for each photo for 1 EP! The present Egyptian Museum sits atop the Nile River. Although the new museum is being relocated to Giza (near the Great Pyramid) next year. Which will be the largest museum in the world. Its work is Allredi 5% complete.
Do not go to Cairo and travel in the Nile. So we also confirmed the Nile River Cruise package online at Viator.com. Package Price: 1 p.m. These include hotel pick up and drop, 2 hour cruise tours, buffet dinner, Arabian Tanoura show, belly dance. The price of this package is the same on a cruise.
There are also more to see in Cairo, Citadel, Old Cairo and Khan el Khalili Bazar.
Alexandria (City of Cleopatra):
Alexandria is the second largest city in Egypt. It lies on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. This is where one of the most beautiful Cleopatra residence ever was! Here are archaeological specimens of Roman rule. Signs of Greek and Turkish rule. One-day tours from Cairo can be made here. If you want again, there is a good hotel to stay overnight.
I take the package online from Viator.com. Package price is USD 146 (two). In the morning a car (guide) came and took us out of Cairo and reached the hotel at night. In the meantime, every one of our tourist spots in Alexandria shows up. Our guide was local and spoke English very well. In the afternoon, we had seafood lunch on the Mediterranean Sea. Alexandria is a newly built city in the middle of the old city.
Must see: Fort Qaitbey, Corniche, Catacombs of Kom el-Shuqqafa, Pompey’s Pillar, Cleopatra’s Palace etc.
My next destination was Sharm el-Sheikh. Sharm El-Sheikh is a small town on the banks of the Red Sea. One side of the Red Sea lies Asia (Saudi Arabia) and Africa on the other. Sham-el-Sheikh can be taken from Cairo on a bus or by plane. It takes 4 hours by plane and 3-5 hours by bus. The bus goes from Cairo to Mount Sinai and goes to Sharm-el-Sheikh. However, about 1/3 of the bus stops are checked on this road. Which is annoying. We board the Sharm El-Sheikh bus from Cairo and back to Sharm El-Sheikh to Cairo on Egypt Airlines. OneWay Air Fair 1 – 20 p.m.
Bus fares from 24-2025 BC. We buy the best quality bus tickets (£ 12b). AC bus, dinner supplementary bus ticket, movie screen per seat, seat leg room roughly. Can’t fully extend the legs. The bus goes through Mount Sinai and the Red Sea to Sharm El-Sheikh.
We booked a hotel in Sharm El-Sheikh at Sunrise Arabian Beach Resort. It is one of the main resorts of Sharm-el-Sheikh. The green area is a beautiful 5 star resort with huge area. This was done in the Coal Strait of the Red Sea. The resort has a great view and wonderful facilities. Here the program is arranged for daytime and nighttime. There are many programs including Kids Games, Fun Games, Quizzes, International Dance, Live Songs. Organize one day a week.
You can enjoy these as a guest complementary! Again they have a great beach of their own. There are also snorkelling, paragliding, cruise trips. However, you need to buy the package.
The water at the resort’s private beach is so transparent that everything is clear, including the watercolors of the sea under the empty eyes! Swimming pool has 5 total in this resort! There are 3 restaurants. Arabic, Indian, Italian, France and Seafood. There are dance clubs, there are bars. Inside the resort there is a car by the resort, which arrives every 5 minutes. In a word, if you are in this resort you will not want to go outside! We were here for 3 days. As I took the view-room, the beauty was even more enjoyable. This sham-el-sheikh is a remarkable city planned on the desert on the banks of the Red Sea. There are also many other hotel resorts in Sharm El-Sheikh. Different rates of discrimination.
Must do & See:
Diving, snorkeling, Paragliding, Camel & Bike Ride, Trip to Blue Hole, Mount Sinai climb & Sunrise view, Ras Mohammad National Park etc.
-There are plenty of brokers in Cairo. From the driver to the tourist spot they are full. Nonstop will bother for the guide! They are also abundant inside the pyramid area. Advantages of having a fixed guide for new travelers. Then others can be saved from irritation !! However, it is extraordinary to cover the pyramid by horse carriage! It will cost 5-7pm.
Many places, including hotels, restaurants, will bother for service tips. So first check whether the bill includes service charges. This is more so in Cairo.
- Taxi Fair in Cairo takes a lot So Uber is the best option. Fair is much less.
-Money exchange is better to do at the airport. Money exchange shops in the city are low and exchange rates are low. One Egyptian Pound (EPA) = 1.12 Bangladeshi Taka.
-Mobile SIM is better to take from the airport. Prices 8-21pm
- Everything has to be negotiated.
- Khabar-dabar Arabian. They eat bakery items more. Restaurants and restaurants are biriyani! We were definitely on top of the Arabian food !! The price of the food is fairly regionable.
-The language is Arabic. Most people understand English. Many do not understand again!
July-August is the hottest in Egypt. So this time should be avid.
