Prior to the Arab Spring of 2011, Egypt was one of the most travelled destinations on the planet, right up there with the likes of France, Thailand, & Italy. Shocking right? Not really, if you think about it. With over 5000 years of history, Egypt is home to the Pyramids of Giza, the Nile River, and Luxor, an open-air museum masked as a city that boasts the largest concentration of ancient artifacts in the world. Not to mention the fact that beyond the Nile, Egypt also borders both Mediterranean and Red Seas. Put this all together and it’s no wonder why travellers have continuously flocked to the mystical land of the Pharaohs.
