Egypt is the most populated country in the Arab World. As such, the country is the epicenter for Arabic culture and media and makes Egyptian Arabic the most widely understood dialect.
Aside from the language, Egypt boasts a rich and fabulous history that encompasses over 5 millennia, which is displayed in the hundreds of pyramids, temples, and ruins scattered around the mighty Nile river. Located in the only land bridge between Asia and Africa, Egypt has been in the crossroads of civilizations and Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, French, English, Muslims, Christians, and Jews have all left their mark.
The Nile is still the country’s lifeline, as most cities and archeologic sites are located along its banks. But there is more to Egypt than the Nile: there are fantastic beach resorts on the Mediterranean and Red Seas and secluded oases surrounded by dunes that cry to be discovered.
And while there has been a revolution in the last ten years, the country is back on track and on its feet. Egyptians are eager to receive the tourists they lost so prices are cheaper than ever and the destinations are less crowded, ensuring every visitor a chance to discover the real Egypt.
