You have been cooped up in the house long enough due to Corona. Now is the time to go and explore the world. Why not start with one of the world’s oldest civilizations to have ever existed? Yes! I am talking about the one and only Egypt.

It is time you take a trip to Egypt. The duration of October to February is the perfect time to visit Egypt. The temperature in the country normally ranges from 11 to 25°C around this time.

When planning your trip to Egypt, do not forget to add the Nile River Cruise into your itinerary.

The Nile is the longest African river. Historically the Nile has been considered to be the longest river all over the world. The northern section of the Nile River flows through the Sudanese desert into Egypt. Almost all of the historical and cultural sites of ancient Egypt have developed and have been found along the riverbank of the Nile.

The river cruises are the best way to check out the ruins of ancient Egypt and the modern life along the banks of the River Nile.

You can choose to go on the Luxor and Aswan Nile cruise or the Lake Nasser cruise. These cruise journeys will offer you a chance to visit the amazing attractions present in upper Egypt, from the breathtaking temple complex to the ancient Egyptian tombs like Luxor temple (which has the worlds largest outdoor museum), the Karnak Temple (this temple was the heart of the country during the New kingdom and finally the Mortuary temples of Queen Hatshepsut (Hatshepsut is referred to as one of the most successful Egyptian pharaohs in history) and finally the Philae temple (Philae came into power during Ptolemaic Dynasty) and so much more.
