Going back to Egypt in 15 pictures

Egypt may not have been the most political stable destination lately, but there are still quit a few areas where it’s  perfectly save to travel.

True, maybe it is advisable not to travel on your own but to book a group travel, enjoy a luxury resort in the Red Sea-area to do some snorkeling and diving or to try a Nile cruise. And whatever holiday you choose: they will be happy to welcome you!

The past years we’ve visited Egypt a few times and apart from our snorkeling and diving adventures in the Red Sea it’s our cruise on the Nile that I enjoyed the most. We only had seven days off work and this short holiday was the perfect option to do both some relaxing and sightseeing within one week.

Here are some of our pictures, most of them taken at Karnak Temple. The pictures remind me how fascinating Egypt can be, despite of the political situation. Hope you like them!


Did you travel to Egypt recently? What’s your experience? Do you think it’s safe to travel to Egypt right now? Let us know!

  1. I visited Egypt for one day on a stopover. We saw the pyramids, a museum, and a few other small things. We also got to ride camels. Since I was very young I have always wanted to go to Egypt…the history, the Biblical stuff…..everything about it just seemed super cool. For me, it was great going because it had always been a dream of mine.

    However, I don’t think it’s necessarily the safest so we (my family and I) actually chose to not stay there other than that day.

    While we were there, a few of the Egyptian men trying to sell us all things were kind of flirting with me. And one of them even half-jokingly proposed to marry me…by saying “How many camels will you take for her?” to my Mom! Very interesting experience with the people there….But our tour guide (who was a woman) was very friendly and helpful, as well as super knowledgeable.

    I would love to go back if I have the chance. There is so much more I could see!

  2. Beatifull pictures! I would love to visit Egypt one day. I hear that diving in the red sea is one of the best destinations in the world.

    Beautiful pics and takes me back. Ahhh to be young and dumb and floating on a feluca…. xo

  4. I’ve not been to Egypt before and have heard lots of stories from friends about the resorts etc but it’s nice to see in these photos how much more there is to it than just beaches and resorts – would love to see all the ancient Egyptian ruins etc!

    1. Yes, Egypt may not be the easiest country to travel (it can be a lot of hassle) but has a lot to offer. Tx for visiting!

    Nina, I love your photos! I found Egypt one of the hardest places to take good shots…so I love yours!

  6. I would love to go to Egypt one day to see the pyramids and snorkeling in the Red Sea sounds like a cool experience too. Great photos of a lesser known temple. Thanks for linking up to the #SundayTraveler this week!
