Top 3 things to do in Egypt this year.

Egypt is a wonderful and diverse country – there are so many funky things to do in Egypt. You could be there for a month and not see everything.

  1. Take a hot air balloon ride over Luxor

I know you didn’t expect to see this pick on your list of things to do in Egypt. That’s because hot air balloon rides in Egypt are not that popular. However, it can be a great experience if done correctly.

Make sure to hire a reputable company with a solid security track record.

There is something especially magical when you find yourself lifted above the clouds and looking out over the city of Luxor and the nearby rivers.

You will gain a whole new perspective once you experience this beautiful country by air.

You will soar above the countryside of Egypt before finding yourself with unobstructed views of the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens and the Valley of the Workers.

2. Sail the Nile on a felucca

There is nothing quite like sailing on a magical river, especially when this river is located in the heart of Egypt. Sailing the Nile River can be incredibly refreshing and relaxing.

Sailing down the Nile, next to ancient tombs and temples, is one of Egypt’s best experiences for 2022, or any other year for that matter. There are boat tours sailing between Aswan and Luxor, with visits to multiple other cities including Asna and Kom Ombo Along the way.

You can travel across the Nile Cruise ship on me He went (small wooden ships, perfect for those introverts who like to travel in a smaller group or want a more romantic experience with their loved ones), or Sailboat (small Egyptian sailboat).

3. Discover the cemetery of Giza

You’d think I’d complete my list of top 3 things to do in Egypt without mentioning the Giza cemetery. This is one of the most famous things about Egypt because this is where you can truly enjoy all the glory that Egypt has to offer.

The Giza Necropolis complex is located outside of Cairo, literally minutes away from the airport and the main city.

The new changes that will come into effect soon will override all previous rules that included individuals required to either submit a negative PCR test that had to be taken at least 72 hours before departure, or a COVID-19 vaccination certificate showing they had received their full vaccination 14 days prior to departure. Or any coronavirus tests approved by the Egyptian Ministry of Health at Egyptian ports of entry.
