A few years ago, while watching the iconic song “Suraj Hua Madham” from the movie ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’, I was completely stunned by the magnificent pyramids of Egypt in the background. The sight of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, one of Bollywood’s most famous onscreen couples, romancing amidst the golden sands of these ancient wonders ignited a strong desire within me to visit Egypt. But it wasn’t just the song that piqued my interest in the African nation; movies such as “Transformers”, “Death on the Nile”, “X-Men: Apocalypse”, “The Mummy”, “The Prince of Egypt”, “Scorpion King”, “Singh Is King”, and many others have indirectly played a role in motivating me to explore this ancient land of history and fantasy.

If you are someone like me, who has been fascinated by the allure of Egypt depicted on the silver screen, then you are in for a treat – as Egypt has much more to offer than just the iconic pyramids. From the bustling streets of Cairo to the calm waters of the Nile, Egypt is a country brimming with hidden treasures and cultural delights waiting for your arrival. In this Egypt Travel Guide, I will share some personally experienced insights on visiting some lesser-known but equally fascinating places in Egypt beyond the pyramids. But first, let’s start with the basics.

Where is Egypt located, and what is it famous for?

If you look at the world map, you’ll find Egypt in the northeastern region of Africa, hugged by the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Red Sea to the east. It shares land borders with Libya to the west, Sudan to the south, and Israel and the Gaza Strip to the northeast. Cairo is the largest and capital city of the country.

Since childhood, our history and fantasy books have both educated and enamoured us with the ancient Egyptian civilisation and its historic structures, such as the great pyramids. And, who could forget the great Nile River, which has been the lifeline of the desert? From the era of the pharaohs to modern times, this enchanting land has been a cradle of civilisation, a treasure trove of culture, and a testament to human creativity. Although the Great Pyramids are undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest wonders, attracting visitors from all over. Still, there is much more to discover beyond the majesty of the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

Best Places to Visit in Egypt – Beyond the Pyramids!

If you have set your heart on Egypt and are ready to embark on an Egyptian adventure with Travel See Write, let’s take a ride to some of the best places to visit in Egypt that are slightly offbeat but equally captivating.

Located in upper Egypt, Luxor (ancient Thebes) is often referred to as the world’s greatest open-air museum. If you are a history buff, you would love to visit Luxor, as it is home to some of the most extraordinary historic sites in the world. You’ll be in awe of this place, from the majestic Karnak Temple to the stunning Valley of the Kings. No wonder even 007 makers couldn’t resist showing this marvellous location in their 1977 hit Bond movie, “The Spy Who Loved Me.”

The main site in the city is the Luxor Temple, a massive complex of temples, statues, and courtyards dating back over 3,000 years. The temple is dedicated to the god Amun and is decorated with intricate pictographs and carvings reciting the story of ancient Egyptian religion, practices and mythology. Near Luxor stands the majestic Karnak Temple, which is one of Egypt’s most beautiful and iconic temple complexes, spread over 100 hectares of area. The site includes several temples, chapels, and pylons, all embellished with impressive carvings and hieroglyphics. Dedicated to the god Amun, the temple took centuries to build, with each pharaoh adding to the complex. This place is so amazing that I could spend weeks here.

Perched on the banks of the River Nile lies Aswan, which is a serene and charming city that offers a glimpse into traditional Nubian culture. Like Luxor, this city is also home to some of Egypt’s most impressive ancient ruins, including the Temple of Philae and the Unfinished Obelisk.

Another ancient city steeped in history and philosophy, Alexandria was once the intellectual and cultural capital of the ancient world. You are magically transported to a bygone era when you explore the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, and the stately Montaza Palace.

Siwa Oasis

Hidden in the Western Desert, the Siwa Oasis is truly an urban oasis that provides an exclusive entry into the traditional Egyptian way of life that seems light years away from today’s AI-generated world. You can either marvel at the ancient ruins of the Temple of the Oracle or take a dip in the crystal-clear waters of the Cleopatra Pool and unwind in the natural hot springs. One day is definitely not enough for this sanctuary of nature and history.

Red Sea Coast

And, for someone who loves the sea and marine life, the Red Sea Coast is the place to be. Its crystal-clear turquoise waters, colourful coral reefs, and abundant sea creatures make it a true paradise for scuba divers and beach lovers alike. Personally, I consider Egypt’s Red Sea Coast diving experience to be one of the best in the world. Moreover, you can dive here throughout the year with the best diving conditions. Besides diving, you can engage in various other adventure activities, such as snorkelling, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. Or, you can just enjoy beach walks.

Red Sea Coast is one of the best places to enjoy the stunning marine life of Egypt.

Abu Simbel

Situated on the southern side of Egypt near the border with Sudan, Abu Simbel is another historic site famous for the two massive rock-cut temples constructed by Pharaoh Ramses II in the thirteenth century BCE. The temple features four gigantic statues of the king, each towering over 20 metres. Both the exteriors and the interiors of the temple are impressive, with intricate paintings and carvings portraying scenes from the pharaoh’s life.

These are just a few of the best places to visit in Egypt. This African jewel boasts an incredible diversity of stunning landscapes, sure to leave you amazed.

Exploring the Diverse Terrains of Egypt via waterways

The mighty Nile River is the beating heart of this magnificent country, which has been the lifeline of Egypt for thousands of years. The Nile has been the cradle of the ancient Egyptian civilisation that once thrived along its banks. If you wish to immerse yourself in the beauty and serenity of this legendary river, there is no better way to do so than by taking a River Nile Cruise. You navigate through some of Egypt’s most historic towns and cities, bridging the gap between the past and the present.

However, let me warn you that your biggest challenge would be picking up the best River Nile Cruise itinerary. There are just too many options available – from a 3-night Nile cruise to exotic trips lasting 10 to 14 days. Whichever duration you choose, remember that most River Nile cruises travel from Luxor to Aswan or vice versa with frequent stops. The most popular River Nile Cruise itinerary covers about 200 km in three to four days. Still, depending on your preference, it can be slowed down or paced up. Both cities are well connected from Cairo by air; however, a far more enjoyable and sustainable option is to travel through an overnight sleeper train. 

You can opt for a complete Cruise holiday in Egypt or include shorter cruise journeys as a part of a longer, land-based trip clubbed with other prominent destinations such as Cairo or Sharm el-Sheikh.

But whatever itinerary you pick up, remember selecting the best Nile Cruise is about choosing which boat you want to stay on and what sites and tours you want to cover. 

Here’s a standard Aswan to Luxor Cruise Itinerary:

Day 1: Explore High Dam and Philae Temple

Day 2: Visit Abu Simbel (optional) and Kom Ombo

Day 3: Spend time at Edfu Temple, Karnak, and Luxor Temple

Day 4: Experience hot air balloon (optional), Colossi of Memnon, Temple of Hatshepsut, and Valley of the Kings.

Depending on your budget and time, you can choose a private or group tour. And you can even personalise your cruise experience. If you are hard-pressed for time, opt for Nile Air flights instead of doing a Nile River cruise.

Exploring the Varied Terrains of Egypt via its Deserts

If you thought that Egypt’s natural splendour is limited to its water bodies, you would be mistaken. The deserts in the country are just as remarkable, each possessing its charm. From the allure of the White Desert to the vastness of the Sinai Peninsula traversing Egypt’s diverse landscapes through a desert, it promises an extraordinary journey of exploration and excitement.

A trip to Egypt is incomplete without exploring its deserts.

The Mysterious White Desert

Situated in Egypt’s Western Desert, the White Desert is a landscape characterised by rock formations sculpted over centuries by the relentless forces of wind and sand. While wandering through this terrain, one encounters towering limestone columns and whimsical shapes that seem to defy gravity. These rocks take on a golden tint at sunset, enhancing the desert’s beauty and casting a captivating glow across the scenery. Spending a night camping beneath the stars in this marvel allows you to tune into the rhythms of the desert and witness the enchantment of the nocturnal sky.

The Majestic Sinai Peninsula

To the east lies the Sinai Peninsula, with its rugged mountains, pristine beaches, and vibrant coral reefs. I loved this wilderness paradise for its plethora of adventure activities, such as hiking through the rugged terrain of Mount Sinai and diving in the crystal-clear waters of the Red Sea. For those seeking spiritual enlightenment, a pilgrimage to Mount Sinai – believed to be the site where Moses received the Ten Commandments – is a profound experience. As the sun rises over the desert peaks, illuminating the landscape in a golden glow, you’ll feel a sense of awe and reverence that is both humbling and inspiring.

While exploring Egypt, do consider visiting the Suez Canal. This marvel of modern engineering has played a crucial role in global trade since its opening in 1869, and its strategic importance is still felt today. Whether you’re a history buff or simply curious, the Suez Canal is definitely worth a visit.

Immersion in the Local Culture and Traditions of Egypt

From the beginning, I have always believed that to experience the soul of a destination truly, one must become a part of their daily lives and experience day-to-day life as the locals do. Therefore, to truly experience the magic of Egypt, it is imperative you immerse yourself in its vibrant culture and century-old traditions. When you engage with the local Egyptian communities, sample their traditional cuisines, and participate in their cultural programs, you’ll get real insights into the soul of this ancient land. I bet you’ll never be able to forget the mouth-watering taste of savouring koshary (Egypt’s beloved national dish) in a bustling Cairo market or witnessing the larger-than-life spectacle of the Abu Simbel Festival. At the end of your trip, you’ll wish you had more time in hand as there’s no shortage of experiences to enrich your journey through Egypt.

Suggested 10-day Itinerary for Egypt

Whether visiting Egypt for the first time or returning to the enchanting land, consider at least a 10-day trip to cover some of the best places to visit in Egypt. Although even months are less to explore the beauty of Egypt, this 10-day trip will give you a reasonable amount of time to explore the beauty of the Nile and observe the daily life of the locals closely along its banks. Ideally, it would be best to start your Egypt holiday with a 2-day exploration of its capital – Cairo – and then head south to Aswan for another two days. Post that, you can enjoy a 3-day cruise on the Nile River before wrapping up your trip in Luxor with a 3-day stay.

Here’s what my Egypt itinerary looked like:

Suggested 10-day Itinerary for Egypt to visit the best places in Egypt
A suggested 10-day Itinerary to visit the best places in Egypt.

Day 1 to 2: Cairo

I started my journey by exploring the iconic attractions of Cairo, which obviously included the Great Pyramids of Giza (one of the world’s seven wonders), the Sphinx, Sakkara, the renowned Egyptian Museum, and the bustling Khan El-Khalili market. If you can afford it, I highly recommend staying at the Mamlouk Pyramids Hotel for an exceptionally great view of the Pyramids and the Sphinx illuminated at night. Or even a morning view with your tea and coffee overlooking these magnificent structures is fantastic. Alternatively, on the second day, you can visit Alexandria too.

Day 3 to 4: Aswan

After your heart is full of Cairo attractions (which I highly doubt), you next move to Aswan to discover the ancient gems such as the Philae and Kalabsha Temples. Either go on an island tour or explore the fantastic museums of Aswan. Both the Nubian Museum and Aga Khan Mausoleum are great. After that, go on a day trip to the remarkable Abu Simbel to witness the amalgamation of ancient architectural styles and modern engineering techniques that will blow your mind away. Also, I highly recommend staying at any of the West Bank guest houses to experience this ancient city’s authentic charm. I loved interacting with the locals during ferry rides across the Nile River.

Day 5 to 7: River Nile Cruise

Next, board the Aswan to Luxor multi-day Nile Cruise for a captivating journey down the Nile. You can choose a traditional felucca or a luxurious cruise ship, depending on your budget. This enchanting trip across the divine waters of Egypt will bring you up close to the greatest archaeological wonders ever created in this world. You’ll see the timeless beauty of Egypt’s landscapes and landmarks, such as the High Dam, Kom Ombo Temple, Hatshepsut Temple, Philae Temple, Edfu Temple and other historical landmarks.

Day 8 to 10: Luxor

Your Nile cruise journey will end at Luxor, where, once again, you’ll get an opportunity to explore more ancient wonders of the world. There’s so much to explore between Luxor’s East Bank and West Bank. You’ll be torn between what to choose – the stunning temples of the East Bank or the astounding tombs of the West Bank. Personally, even five days is too little to explore this magnificent city. Still, three days is the minimum you should keep for here. There are just so many sights to see. I definitely suffered from FOMO while exploring Luxor. The architecture of the awe-inspiring Karnak Temple, the mystical Valley of the Kings, the majestic Luxor Temple, and the enlightening Luxor Museum blew me away. And, if you really want to experience something totally outstanding – go for an early morning hot air balloon ride over the enchanting landscapes of Ancient Egypt. If you like to stay away from the crowd yet be close to the best places to visit in Egypt, stay in the quieter environs of the West Bank area.

I had a blast following this 10-day Egypt itinerary. I hope this personally curated itinerary will work for you, too, and you’ll have an unforgettable experience in Egypt.

Practical Tips for Travelers – Do’s and Don’ts in Egypt

When planning a trip to Egypt, remember that there are various logistics and practicalities to consider that can make or break your holiday. Here are some practical tips for you to follow: 

To enjoy the best places in Egypt it's important to know the Do's and Don'ts before your visit.
To enjoy the best places in Egypt it’s important to know the Do’s and Don’ts before your visit.
  1. Is it safe to travel to Egypt in 2024? One of the things that I always check before booking a trip to a new country is its safety rating. Despite the ongoing Israel-Gaza conflict, it is very safe to visit Egypt for tourists. However, please ensure that you book your trip through a reputed local tour operator and take precautions while travelling in the country. Do not flash your cash, valuables or jewellery; stay lowkey, stick to well-lit areas, remain vigilant of your surroundings in crowded places, and most importantly, be aware and smart about your surroundings. 
  2. What visa is required for Egypt: If you are an Indian citizen like me, you must get an e-visa or visa on arrival for Egypt. The process to get an Egypt e-visa is very simple and straightforward. All you have to do is visit the official Egypt visa website and submit the required personal and passport details. You’ll need to share your recent passport photograph and pay a visa fee, which is ₹2,350 for a single-entry visa. You will receive an electronic visa within eight business days (if approved). Alternatively, you can get a traditional visa through the nearest Egyptian embassy or consulate in India. If you have a valid US visa, you can get one in Egypt on arrival—don’t forget to research visa requirements and travel restrictions before planning your trip to Egypt.
  3. How to reach Egypt: Many international airlines offer connecting flights from major Indian cities to Cairo or other airports in Egypt. Choose the airlines that suit your schedule, budget and preferences. While there are several international and Indian airlines flying to Egypt, Nile Air offers direct flights from several Indian cities to Cairo. Check their website for flight schedules and booking options.
  4. What Not to Bring: To have a wonderful stay in Egypt, avoid making the usual mistakes tourists make by knowing what to bring and what not to bring in Egypt. While packing for your trip to Egypt, avoid packing clothes that are too skin revealing as the locals may not like. Definitely do not carry strictly prohibited items such as drugs, firearms (even toys), and pornographic items. Do not bring your drone unless you have secured flying permission from the authorities. Egypt has prohibited the use and trade of drones. You don’t want to land in jail trying to fly your drone around the Pyramids. Also, don’t carry a large amount of cash to avoid any problems at the customs. Instead, use a Forex card or Scapia credit card.
  5. Dress code: Egypt is predominantly Muslimtherefore, as a traveller (especially if you are a solo female traveller), be mindful that it’s absolutely essential (not optional) to dress modestly. Respect the local customs and culture. You are visiting their land, and it’s your duty to adapt to their culture. Not vice versa. Wear something lightweight, easy to carry, and covers your shoulders, chest and knees. When entering temples or mosques, remove your shoes and avoid public displays of affection for your partner.  
  6. Public Transportation: Travelling within Egypt is very convenient as the country has an extensive and reliable network of trains, buses, and domestic flights. Overnight trains are good for long journeys, but be careful to carry your food if you are a vegetarian. Buses and taxis are a good option for shorter trips or commuting within cities. It’s easy to book an Uber, inDriver, easy taxi or any local cab in Cairo and other Egyptian cities.
  7. Best Way to Explore Egypt: While there are hundreds of ways to explore Egypt, the best way to do so is by immersing yourself deeply and slowly into a perfect mix of heritage, culture, food, nature and adventure. Plan a trip that takes you to the best places in Egypt, including the ancient temples, cruise along the Nile, sample delicious Egyptian cuisine and interact with friendly locals.
  8. Hiring a local guide: Guided tours with a knowledgeable local guide in Egypt can enrich your travel experience to several notches by providing insights into the country’s history, culture, and landmarks. You’ll be able to connect with the place and people more deeply. Therefore, before booking a trip, research finding reputable tour guides or local operators who can tailor an itinerary per your interests while delivering the best of their country.
  9. Avoid Travel Scams: Don’t entertain random strangers or vendors on the road who try to sell you their tours. Always book from registered tour operators only. 
  10. Accommodation in Egypt: Another vital point to consider before travelling to Egypt is to book accommodation and transportation in advance. This comes in handy to get good deals and save money, especially when you travel during peak season when demand is high. If possible, travel in shoulder season. From high-end luxury resorts to cosy guesthouses, Egypt caters to all kinds of budget travellers. By booking in advance, you can ensure a comfortable and convenient place to stay throughout your trip.
  11. Visiting Cairo: It is convenient to start your Egypt tour journey from Cairo, the bustling capital of Egypt. There are many iconic landmarks to cover, such as the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, and the Egyptian Museum. But don’t forget to explore Old Cairo’s vibrant markets and neighbourhoods. If you have time, visit the City of the Dead or enrol yourself in a potter class. It’s pretty fun to do such activities. 
  12. Nile River Cruises: It is a must-do when visiting Egypt to experience the otherworldly beauty of Egypt’s ancient temples and diverse landscapes. Nile cruises typically last 3-4 days and include stops at Aswan, Luxor and other historic sites along the river.
  13. Is it worth visiting the Suez Canal? While the Suez Canal may not feature on traditional Egypt travel itineraries, it is 100% worth visiting as it holds immense historical and economic significance in the growth of modern Egypt. You can opt for a guided tour or visit a few observation points to observe points to learn about the Suez Canal’s significance.
  14. When is the best time to visit Egypt in 2024? Winter is the peak season to visit Egypt as the weather is cool and ideal for exploration. However, I recommend visiting during the shoulder seasons (spring and autumn) to enjoy the stunning sights without crowds and milder weather. 
  15. How many days are enough for Egypt Travel? Ideally, a 7-10 trip is good to explore the highlights of Egypt. However, on a tight schedule, you can still cover the major cities in 5 to 7 days. If you want to travel slowly and explore more off-the-beaten-track hidden gems of Egypt, keep 10 to 14 days.

I hope these travel tips help you plan an enjoyable and safe trip to Egypt.

Travel Sustainably through Egypt

As a responsible traveller, I urge you to prioritise sustainability over unsustainable practices. Respect Egypt’s cultural and natural heritage, support local communities and small business owners by buying local products and participate in initiatives to preserve Egypt’s natural and heritage treasures. Choosing adventure activities and travelling responsibly will help minimise your environmental impact and contribute positively to the local economy. And please don’t ride camels or horses.
