Things to Do in Egypt
Pyramids of Giza
Home to the last remaining wonder of the ancient world, namely the Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt is the original tourist destination. While the Greeks were writing epics and the Romans conquering civilizations, powerful Egyptian dynasties had long come and gone. Indeed, ancient Upper and Lower Egypt were some of the most sophisticated and complex civilizations to have ever existed on the planet.
 
The Great Pyramid of Giza (also called the Khufu's Pyramid, Pyramid of Khufu, and Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now Cairo, Egypt, and is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that survives substantially intact. It is believed the pyramid was built as a tomb for Fourth dynasty Egyptian King Khufu (Cheops in Greek) and constructed over a 20 year period concluding around 2560 BC. The Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years.
 
The Great Pyramid is the most substantial structure of the ancient world, and one of the most mysterious. Constructed from approximately 2.5 million limestone blocks weighing on average 2.6 tons each, its total mass represents more building material than is found in all the churches and cathedrals built in England.
   
Visit Abu Simbel
Abu Simbel, two massive rock temples that were carved out of a mountainside by Pharaoh Ramesses II and Queen Nefertari in the 13th century BC. Remarkably, the entire complex was relocated in 1the 960s following flooding caused by the construction of the Aswan dam.
 
This structure is one of the most visited in Egypt, a land of wondrous temples and monuments, yet it lay buried under sand for much of the following millennia until it was rediscovered in 1813 – by that stage only the very top friezes were showing over the mountains of sand. The larger of the temples, also referred to as The Great Temple is fronted by a 20 metre high statue of the Pharaoh and a colossal frieze. Inside it has the complex layout of many Egyptian temples.
 
     
Alexandria
Nestling the Mediterranean, Egypt's "second city" has a French colonial atmosphere and a relaxed Greek influence, a mix of continental patisseries, art deco architecture and crowded sandy beaches in summer. Don’t miss the mosaics in the Roman Amphitheatre, the hi-tech Bibliotecha, and the new underwater museum filled with Cleopatra’s sunken relics. 
 
     
Khan-el Khalili bazaar
Take a trip to Cairo's famous labyrinthine, medieval Khan-el Khalili bazaar, where haggling for spices, copper, perfume and trinkets has been refined into an art form. Don't miss Fishawi's tea house; in business for over 200 years, it is the ultimate place to people-watch.
 
     
Diving
The Egyptian Red Sea offers some of the world's best scuba diving with superb visibility, countless varieties of hard and soft coral, and incredibly diverse underwater topography, with spectacular wall and shipwreck dive destinations. The Red Sea has an abundant and diverse fish life including various types of grouper, stingray, parrotfish, angelfish, butterfly fish and turtles.
 
The Red Sea resorts of Sharm el-Sheikh and Dahab are popular bases for divers, situated near the southern tip of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula and offering easy access to some of the best dive locations including Ras Mohammed National Park and the Straits of Tiran. Other resorts popular with divers and snorkelers are Hurghada, El Gouna, Taba Heights and Makadi Bay.
 
     
Egyptian Cuisine
No trip to Egypt would be complete without enjoying a traditional Egyptian meal. High-end restaurants are at many of the city's prestigious hotels lining the Nile. They offer plates of kebob, flatbread, shish-kofta and tabbouleh. For a more rustic experience, venture in to one of Cairo's working-class neighborhoods for a bowl of koshari, a vegetarian concoction of pasta, lentils, tomatoes and onions. Sharwarma, a sandwich consisting of lamb, goat or beef with vegetables and tahini, is another local favorite.
 
     
Nightlife in Egypt
There is so much to do in Egypt. Enjoying nightlife in Egypt  is among one of the best things to do in Egypt.
 
The most vibrant nightlife of Egypt is of capital city-Cairo. Cairo has numerous nightlife options. Basic are the "Baladi bars" often called as 'cafeterias'. These bars do not sell alcohol. But these bars are permanently male domain areas. Along with these private owned bars most of the hotels have bars made in Western style and are as popular as cafeterias.
 
Besides of these bars Cairo city also has more than a dozen of casinos. Most of them are within the international hotels. Drinks offered in these casinos also include alcohol along with soft drinks. Games and opening hours generally vary.
 
Most of the nightclubs in Egypt have belly dancers. Western nightclubs are called as discos. The most popular is the Jackie's Joint at the Nile Hilton while The Place is also a favorite one and offers live music.
