2. Nile Cruises

Travel agencies are often quick to recommend a cruise through the great River Nile. What they are however slow to inform you of is the variety of ways you can choose to cruise the Nile. Now depending on your budget and the time you wish to spend on the large cruise ships or Dahabiya’s, which are small but elegant wind-powered sail ships with just 4-6 cabins, you can choose from a plethora of options. The more luxurious ships may set you back 500$ a night while the smaller basic ships cost only 50$ a night. The Dahabiya’s range from 90$-300$ a night but is less crowded and more pleasant especially for couples. Penny pinchers will find great comfort in the Feluccas which only cost around 20$-50$ but offer more of the same experience but with fewer amenities. You can browse through this blog and find tons of tips and secrets on Nile cruises that cannot be found anywhere else.

At the heart of Egypt’s culture and heritage lies the vibrant local citizenry and their strict adherence to laws and customs. If you want a perfectly smooth and enjoyable experience in Egypt, it is important to learn how to interact with the locals and keep in line with their laws and customs. As an example, the consumption of alcohol is illegal in Egypt so an innocent swig may put you on the wrong side of the law.
