|Description:||For centuries Egypt has captured the imagination and souls of travelers from around the world. It is not difficult to understand why holding one of the seven ancient wonders of the world, the Great Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza. Cairo can be described as a city of contrasts where mud-brick villages stand beside Pharaonic ruins that are surrounded by buildings of modern architecture. Donkey drawn carts merge with city traffic blending the old and the new which is Cairo of today but at the same time ancient history and beauty come together.
Further south along the Nile is the city of Aswan that developed as a result of the High Dam. Lake Nasser is on one side of the dam, which is home to Abu Simbel (the gigantic Temples of King Ramses II and Nefertari) while the Nile river on the other side provides life and agriculture to its settlers. It is a special city with a great vibe enhanced by the friendliness of the people as you explore the streets and the markets., none|
