Top attractions

Top attractions

Blessed with one of the seven ancient wonders of the world, the Nile has a number of attractions which are unrivalled in sheer impressiveness. The Valley of the King is home to a number of pharaohs and the tributes to them are fit for any amount of kings. With huge public monuments and a mass of hidden underground mausoleums, this site, located on the Nile's west bank of Luxor, is an elaborate site unlike any other. As resting places for pharaohs such as Seti I, Ramses II and even Tutankhamun, the grandeur of the surroundings more than match its royal inhabitants.

A trip to Egypt isn't complete until you tick off both the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx. A defining symbol of Egypt and one of the last standing wonders of the ancient world, the Great Pyramid of Giza was built over a 20 year period during the reign of King Khufu between 2598-2566 BCE. It held the record of the world's tallest man-made structure for over 3000 years until the Eiffel Tower was constructed, but just because it's lost that particular record doesn't mean it's lost any of its charm. Learn about it's unique history and don't forget to snap a selfie or two. Equally as popular is the Sphinx, built as a guard to the tombs behind it, this historical site is 241 feet long and 66 feet high. Despite years of erosion and damage, the huge statue is still in a phenomenal condition for something that has stood so long. No matter when you visit the Nile, a trip is only really complete when you've crossed these off your list.

Beaches

Beaches

There are a number of beaches dotted around the Nile and each of them bring their own unique qualities. Nubian Beach is located right by the Nile and it's famous for being situated very close to a group of Nubian villages. At the beach you can watch the Nubian fisherman pulling in their catch before leaving to sell their haul to local restaurants. Meaning that when you have had your fill of sun and sand, you can enjoy some super fresh seafood. There is also Lake Nasser nearby and it is a popular area for tourists as it's a hotspot for sport fishing. The main attraction in that respect are the Nile perch. This group of freshwater fish are a big draw for visitors and the lake can be reached by a ferry from the Nile.
