All the temples in Eygpt are amazing and this one was no exception. Go early to avoid the huge crowds.

The size and detail in the columns alone is worth the visit to this site. The statues, hieroglyphics, and paintings, all tell the stories of the Gods and Pharaohs, and the struggles for power and control. Many paintings still retain their original colours. The obelisks...More

The history of ancient Egypt boggles the mind! The Karnak Temple is majestic and full of history. We enjoyed our visit and left with more questions than answers. What a wonder to behold.

We have just returned from Sharm El Shiekh and had a great time this was our first time in Egypt and we are considering going to Luxor for my husbands 60th next year spending a week in Luxor and a week in either El Gouna or Hurgada.

You could easily spend a fortnight in Luxor alone! Why not cruise for one week (the tours are good but hurried and limited to the most famous sites), then spend a relaxed week re-visiting the big sites and finding out the rest? Crossing on the local ferry is easy and costs LE2 return (20p) you can pick up a taxi from the ferry car park and they will take you to the many sites. Use the search engine for recent posts with details of cost etc. If you are happy just using a guide book, then...More

Trip report for Egypt (3 Replies)
Hi everyone. My wife and I took a whirlwind trip to Egypt in November and thought we'd share the amazing experience we had. We fell in love with the country, the sights it has to offer, and the friendly people there. Unfortunately, one week is never enough to see a country, and we wish we had had more time. DAY 1: Landed in Cairo early in the morning and got a limo cab from the airport to the hotel Semiramis for LE60. After resting, a late morning start had us grabbing a b&w cab...More

I'm more of an aggressive traveller/backpacker rather than the relaxing vacationer so I don't really need days of "rest" so to speak. That being said, I'm going to be in Egypt in late April for two weeks. One week will be on a liveaboard diving the red sea, and the other week is completely open. Here's what I have planned for my open week: Day 1 Friday Afternoon: Fly into Hurghada from London. Evening:Take the night flight from Hurghada to Cairo. Day 2 Saturday Morning &...More

You weren't joking when you said you cram a lot into each day. Make sure to double check opening and closing times so you don't have any surprises. I hope you know that you won't be able to drive an Israeli rental car into Bethlehem. Kfar Kedem is not open on Saturday. Western Wall Tunnels need an advance reservation. In terms of Christmas dinner, you may find it at places like Notre Dame in Jerusalem, but be prepared to not really notice anything that will let you know it is...More
