How to reach Egypt
Travelling to Egypt by Air
The main airports in Egypt are Cairo International Airport and Luxor International Airport. The other major airports are at Aswan, Alexandria and Sharm El Sheikh. Non-stop flights are available, with most of them landing at Cairo International Airport. There are numerous daily flights to Egypt from major Indian cities such as Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi and Kolkata to name a few. Egypt has two international airports – in Cairo and Luxor.

The Cairo International Airport is the primary airport and it is situated in Heliopolis, around 15 kms from the center of the city. As the second busiest airport in Africa, it witnesses more than 16 million passengers in a year.

Various international airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa, Swiss, Etihad, and its own national carrier Egypt air serve the airport. The airport has three terminals and there’s a free shuttle bus to transport you between Terminal 2 and 3. From the airport, you can take a taxi, Uber or a bus to reach the city. The other international airport in Egypt is in Luxor although this airport is mostly used for domestic flights and charters. This is a much smaller airport and thus lacks several conveniences. However, you can reach the city once you land here using taxis.

Travelling to Egypt by Road
Travelling to Egypt in a car from other nearby countries is possible but it’s not a good idea. Firstly, the traffic situation can be a little unreliable and drivers in places like Cairo tend to be a little unruly. Also, it can be a little confusing because, in Egypt, vehicles travel on the right side of the road.

Buses from Israel to Egypt are available. In case you are coming from Jerusalem, then a bus trip to Egypt can easily be on the cards. It’s a good idea to book your ticket a day in advance although buses are known to be quite unreliable as the buses tend to break down often. Traveling by bus is not recommended if you are not able to tolerate the heat as it can get quite warm. Make sure you’re carrying plenty of water and some snacks with you.

Travelling to Egypt in a car from other nearby countries is possible but it’s not a good idea. Firstly, the traffic situation can be a little unreliable and drivers in places like Cairo tend to be a little unruly.

Places to Visit in Egypt
Egypt is the site of one of the oldest civilizations in the world which dates back to 5500 BC, boasts some of the most amazing places to visit in Egypt.

Pyramids of Giza
The three pyramids, which house the tombs of ancient pharaohs, are one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. Located on the Giza Plateau, the pyramids are the only Wonder to have remained intact over thousands of years.

The Great Pyramid, also known as the Pyramid of Khufu, is 138 meters high and is open to tourists via the Robber’s Tunnel. The limestone Sphinx structure is also part of the same complex. The pyramids complex of Giza is the gem of Egypt vacation spots and one of the most famous Egypt touring places.

Valley of Kings, Luxor
Located on the East bank of the river Nile, Luxor was the site of the ancient city of Thebes and is one of the most popular Egypt tourist spots. Hailed as the world’s largest open-air museum, Luxor is best known for the Valley of Kings that houses rock-cut tombs of ancient pharaohs. Famous ancient kings such as Tutankhamun and Amenhotep were buried here.

Although there are about 63 tombs that have been excavated, only a small number is open to tourists. Tutankhamen's tomb, called the KV62, has different entry charges.

Islamic Cairo
The Islamic Cairo district in the capital of Egypt is filled with medieval mosques, monuments, and madrassas, and is one of the foremost Egypt tourist attractions. The Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Hassan is an impressive example and a visible reminder of the Islamic heritage of this beautiful city.

If you delve deep into the part near the walled city, you can also find workshops and artisan families that have worked there for a millennium, making it one of the best places to visit in Egypt.

Citadel of Saladin
One of the many places in ancient Egypt to be declared as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the citadel was built by the famous Ayyubid ruler Saladin to protect Cairo and Fustat (the main Egyptian capital under the Caliphate) against Crusaders.

The huge fortification is lined by several watchtowers and houses several stunning mosques and the Well of Joseph inside. The Al-Naseer, Sulayman Pasha and the Al Gawhara Palace exhibition hall are three places that are an absolute necessity for Egypt touring visits in Cairo.

Egyptian Museum
The ancient cities of Egypt have been excavated to reveal temples, palaces, and tombs that are thousands of years old, and you may wonder where all the fabled treasure went. After all, the Egyptians were famous for burying their dead with all kinds of things – gold, golden artifacts, books, and so on. Worry not, because the Egyptian Museum is that dream comes true.

The pyramids tell you only half the story, the other half is housed in this biggest Egypt collection in the world, including the famous excavation from the tomb of Tutankhamun, making it one of the most stunning places to visit in Egypt.

Things to do in Egypt
You can explore a lot of places to see and learn about Egyptian culture, and also let yourself indulge in a lot of fun and educational things to do in Egypt.

Hurghada – Go Scuba Diving
The Red Sea shoreline of Egypt is renowned for the town of Hurghada, which offers heaps of fun activities in Egypt in December. The dazzling scene here, complete with coral reefs, completely clear waters, and sandy shores makes for the ideal spot for plunging and swimming. There are bunches of exercises in Egypt that you can take part in, however, this is very amazing. We believe your excursion would be incomplete without a visit to the Grand Aquarium in Hurghada.

Giza – Learn To Make Papyrus
One of the Egyptian civilization’s greatest achievements was the invention of paper. Specifically, they made writing material out of pulp derived from the papyrus tree that still grows along the Nile. At the Papyrus Institute in Giza (which is where the Pyramids are), visitors are enthralled with a demo of the way we believe the ancient Egyptians made paper. Interestingly, papyrus is one of the most popular things to buy in Egypt, and you can easily get your hands on papyrus souvenirs here to make your Egypt trip memorable.

Egyptian Museums – Take A Guided Tour
Witnessing the ruins of ancient temples, tombs, and pyramids from the ancient civilization is hands down one of the most important things to do in Cairo, Egypt. This museum houses the biggest collection of artifacts recovered from the ruins, like all the cursed gold of Tutankhamen’s tomb and actual mummies and about 165,000 other artifacts. However, one of the ways to make this museum trip better is to hire a guide to show you around. Trust us, there is no better museum in the world for ancient history and spending money on a guide will only add to the memories.

Islamic Cairo – Shop for Leather, Jewels, And Perfumes
Behind the walled city lies what used to be the heart of the Islamic empire in Egypt. While there are stunning mosques that will delight the history and art lovers, there is also the world’s oldest shopping center on the streets of Islamic Cairo. You can take a walking tour by yourself of this place, and buy loads of oriental jewelry, leather bags, and even Egyptian Ittar and aromatic spices, which is surely one of the most enjoyable things to do in Cairo at night. Your bargaining skills will help a lot here, as there is no way to say how much the item is worth.

Giza – Go Camel Riding At Sunset
One of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the pyramids inspire awe. That’s why riding into the sunset at Giza makes it to every list of Egypt things to do. The pyramids are on the Giza Plateau, at the edge where the dunes of Sahara begin showing. Hire a camel or horse for one, two, and four-hour rides in the sand that engulfs the pyramids from one side. At sunset, visitors can witness the pyramids and golden sands in a light that is seldom seen by tourists or even captured in photos. This is one of the most romantic things to do in Egypt.

Best time to visit Egypt
Tourists can travel to Egypt throughout the year, just keep in mind that the summer months here can be very warm. The best time to visit Egypt is between September and April.

Summer (May - August)
Even though the temperature in Egypt is usually high, summer is the worst in comparison to other seasons. Particularly when the temperatures in winters run between 33-21 degrees, summer months can be super-hot in Egypt between May and August, and the most extreme temperature is around 36 degrees, and the least is around 23 degrees. So, make sure you carry plenty of sunscreen, your shades, and water bottles. There is little to no rainfall during this time. Hence the weather can be quite harsh and dry.

Winter (October - February)
Winters, in the Nile Delta Region and Cairo, can be very cool, particularly around evening time, so ensure you carry a light coat. Southern Egypt stays warm in any event, during winters. However, the temperature may drop at night. Winters are the best season to visit Egypt. The travel industry in Egypt is booming this time so ensure you plan, or else you may battle to discover great convenience and may need to pay more for airfare.

 




























Happy Travellers

I Think It Was Once In A Lifetime Experience

Our family has travelled to about 36 countries together, but I think this was one of the top 2 trips we have ever had. Our hotels were chosen perfectly for our needs and it suited our requirements. Despite the drop in tourism in Sri Lanka, Nupur (Our Flamingo Associate) made sure that I felt comfortable enough to be able to go on this trip. I would like to personally thank her for making sure that I didn't say no to this trip.


The hotels were beautiful at all locations, we had no problems at all but the best hotel was  Anantara Dhigu Maldives. It was a perfect recommendation and I think it was once in a lifetime experience. That hotel left a lifelong impact on us. It was a slice of heaven. Amazing service and rooms. Our villa had a staircase leading to the ocean.


Apart from the stays, I would also like to mention that the food was brilliant at all places and we have faced no problems anywhere. The driver/guide in Sri Lanka, recommended by Sri Lanka made us feel like we were a part of his family. We will always be his friends. His wife specially made some home-made spring rolls for us and proved to be a cherry on the top of the cake. We had the luxury minibus travel with us everywhere which had maps of Sri Lanka, history of Sri Lanka on private TV and the most scenic views on the rides. Our guide stopped for coconuts, mangoes at all places and knew all the stuff so well that we felt home in Sri Lanka.


The best part of this experience was that the Flamingo tour didn't really feel like a tour. It gave us the independence to choose our itineraries according to our preferences, but we also felt like it was personally-tailored to our requirements. Thanks for choosing the best amenities for us.


We will definitely travel with Flamingo again. 5/5.
