Egypt

Pyramids, vibrant nightlife, and spectacular street food.

Egypt is a country located in North Africa. Egypt is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Gaza Strip and Israel to the northeast, the Red Sea to the east, Sudan to the south, and Libya to the west. The official language is Arabic.

Egypt is a popular tourist destination for a number of reasons. First of all, Egypt is home to some of the world’s most iconic historical sites, like the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Valley of the Kings. And, of course, no visit to Egypt would be complete without a cruise down the Nile River.

But Egypt is more than just ancient history – it’s a country that’s full of life. Cairo, the capital city, is a bustling metropolis with a vibrant nightlife scene. And when you need a break from the city, you can head to the Red Sea for some world-class diving and snorkeling. The country’s climate is generally warm and sunny, making it a great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

As for food, Egypt is known for its delicious street food. Be sure to try some of the country’s most popular dishes, like koshari (a rice and pasta dish), ful medames (a fava bean stew), and shawarma (meat that’s been slowly cooked on a spit and served in a pita).
