The oasis of fayoum is supposed to have been created by jesus Christ. But to me it is just a lake on which you can row with a boat. Not really worth the effort getting there

Very nice place for those who love nature, sandboarding, safari and pottery. Not luxurious... Simply nature. Despite the chaos at the waterfalls...it is still a beautiful site. Don't try to use the bathroom there
