Holidays in timeless Egypt

In the ultra modern era of 21st century, a world driven by big money derived from oil profits, city planners of oil rich states such as Dubai, as well as post-communist dictators style of self-proclaimed former Turkmenbashi, the Leader of All Turkmen, or another one of his kind, the dictator of Kazakhstan, all built themselves great pyramids. Whether memorials, congress halls, or office complexes, they are all essentially asylums of deranged glory.

While these contemporary monuments to obsession with power have been attracting tourists for their grandeur of sleek architectural design, the only pyramids that truly embody the greatness of a civilization are those in the vicinity of Cairo, known as the pyramids of the Giza Plateau.

Despite continuing to engulf our news with reports of unsettled domestic cataclysm for the last many month, Egypt remains a viable tourism destination. For those with refined interest in the classical antiquity as well as the uninitiated examiner of world-famous sites, the renown temples of Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel will always lure. The West Bank’s Valley of the Kings where the Book of the Dead funerary texts are gracefully painted and carved into walls of the tombs will leave few without awe.

But Egypt also offers Mount Sinai aka the Mountain of Moses, the biblical name of the peak on which Moses received the Ten Commandments, thus a mystique site holy to the Christians.

Then there is the Red Sea and its resorts that attract the beach holiday seekers from cold climates of Europe above all, making reverberate the ultimate in leisure.

Last but not least, those of the adventures spirit can take a journey into the Western Desert, a jeep safari to Siwa Oasis, located some 60 feet below sea level, is even today hailed as the most inaccessible of all Egypt”s oasis in the sea of sand. But above all, a desert safari trip allows you to sample the surreal wind-eroded rock formations in the midst of the Western Desert.

No matter
how one may think of Egypt, Egypt is timeless and there is no better time to see it than now!
