Siwa is fascinating and like most of Egypt cannot simply be packaged into Pharaonic, Coptic, Islamic, WW2 or modern... it is all of the above.

When we arrived at Siwa our hotel provided us a guide who took us out to the lake for sundown. It was spectacular. There was a swimming hole nearby, and the view was just stunning. Take a meal along with you and watch the sunset. There are also vendors in reed kiosks selling drinks and snacks.

It is a big shallow salt lake in the desert, featureless and filled with voracious mosquitoes. Skip it.
