Plum9195This was the first Temple I visited on my trip to Egypt. There was so much to see and appreciate.You will want a tour guide with you if it is your first time because you will appreciate what you are seeing much more if you can understand what you are seeing. It is worth the cost and not too expensive because usually it includes pick up and drop off from the airport or your hotel. I did not realize that there would still be colors on the columns that I would be able to see, to imagine they are still this bright after thousands of years is just beyond belief. This is a must do, it is as good as the Great Pyramids, maybe even better.
浩天5288When you arrive in Egypt, you must go to Luxor when you have time. The Imperial Valley is in Luxor, and there are Mennon Statue and Imperial Valley nearby. Buy tickets and enter the attractions. After you enter the attractions, you can't take photos. The traffic is still more convenient and the accommodation is better.
Plum9195Go at night to visit this famous temple in Luxor. It will be very crowded, but it will be cooler and the lights make everything very attractive. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes because the ground is uneven and you will want to make sure you do not slip. Going with a tour guide is recommended, they will be able to explain what you are seeing so you can fully appreciate the Temple. Reduced admission is available for Egyptian Citizens and students if they have an ID.This is a must do if you are in Egypt.
Plum9195The Nile River is even better than I imagined. Luxor is the start of many 3-5 night cruise's down the Nile. Most of the larger boats hold around 200 people the smaller Dahabiya about 12-18 people. The cruise usually goes from Luxor to Edfu to Aswan stopping to see sights along the way. It is a great way to relax and see the country side at the same time. Usually the cruise includes meals, guides and most admission fees to the major historical sites. Nile River Cruise is a great way to enjoy Egypt.
Plum9195This was such an interesting Temple built by a very interesting Queen. I will not spoil the story by telling it to you here, it is much better when you hear it while visiting the temple.You should have a guide to help you truly appreciate the history of the Temple. Usually the same guide that takes you to the Valley of the King's will take you to this Temple as well as they are very close to each other. The Polish people were instrumental in preserving this Temple and signage recognises this contribution. Seeing the actual tree stump of one of the trees brought back from a long ago trek was also mind-blowing. This was one of the most memorable sites we visited. Highly recommend.
AricFongWe rented a bicycle and ran to visit the Colossus of Mennon, Habu Temple and the Valley of the Kings. The first attraction was the Colossus of Mennon. It is a free attraction and no tickets are required! caution! From ancient Egyptian rule to Arab rule now, to be honest, Egypt is better ruled by Egyptians[naughty]
Travel to the 187th day of marriage, the 11th country, Luxor, Egypt
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering present-day Giza in Greater Cairo, Egypt. The pyramids of Giza were royal tombs built for three different pharaohs. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.
Saint Virgin Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church (Coptic: ϯⲉⲕⲕⲗⲏⲥⲓⲁ ⲛ̀ⲧⲉⲑⲉⲟⲇⲟⲕⲟⲥ ϯⲁⲅⲓⲁ ⲙⲁⲣⲓⲁ Ϧⲉⲛ ⲃⲁⲃⲩⲗⲟⲛ ⲛ̀ⲭⲏⲙⲓ Church of Mother of God Saint Mary in Egyptian Babylon), also known as the Hanging Church (Arabic: الكنيسة المعلقة, romanized: al-Kanīsa al-Muʿallaqa, Coptic: ϯⲉⲕⲕⲗⲏⲥⲓⲁ ⲉⲥⲓϣⲓ), is one of the oldest churches in Egypt and the history of a church on this site dates to the third century. It belongs to the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria.
Cairo, Egypt’s sprawling capital, is set on the Nile River. At its heart is Tahrir Square and the vast Egyptian Museum, a trove of antiquities including royal mummies and gilded King Tutankhamun artifacts. Nearby, Giza is the site of the iconic pyramids and Great Sphinx, dating to the 26th century BC. In Gezira Island’s leafy Zamalek district, 187m Cairo Tower affords panoramic city views.
Egypt was by far one of my best experience. Being that much closer to the pyramids is a breathtaking moment that everybody should experience once in their life time.
oh yeah, me and that horse is a love story 😂. At some point I literally didn't want to get off. I spent exactly 2 hours riding it around the pyramids. And at end the i had to pay quit a price for it 😂. it was worthy though, You Only Live Once so enjoy the moment while you can!

I’m ever so grateful to visit Egypt. Wanting to see the entire country, I rented a car in Cairo International Airport. Driving from Cairo, to Qena, to Luxor, to Hurghada, and back to Cairo, Egypt. Walking the streets, eating good food, visited the temples, riding on a hot air balloon over “The Valley of the Kings/Queens”, to blending in with the people. The best experience of my life! I visited the country again, and again, and then again. lol
