What should I see in Egypt?
North Africa has been among my favorite regions to travel. Algeria, Libya and Tunisia are marvelous. Morocco is on my wish list. Next up is Egypt. For an ancient history buff, Egypt is one of the greatest treasure-houses in the world and it is long past time that I visit.
There is so much to choose from, I would like to hear from readers what stood out the most from their trips. How to even begin to choose among Luxor’s sites other than to try to see them all?
Here’s my trip outline as I hit the road:
- St Catherine’s and Mt Sinai
- Port Said for the Suez Canal and its faded 20th-century past
- The WWII sites of El-Alamein, with side stops at Rosetta, Alexandria and Abu Mena
- Dendera – Abydos – Sohag Red Monastery and White Monastery
Luxor and Cairo are my big open items. So much to see, so little time. If you’ve traveled Egpyt, let me know what to do or what not to do.
And in case I can squeeze in any other place, let me know what I have inexcusably skipped. Submissions that include hotels, hotel lounges, airplane seats or airport lounges will be ignored. 🙂
