Egypt for the New Year
Tired of the traditional New Year olivier and decorated Christmas trees? Do you want a holiday, champagne, but under palm trees, on the sand next to the sea? Egypt is a great alternative.
For many of our fellow citizens to celebrate the New Year in a hotel in Egypt is the same as going for a day off at the cottage. So the festive atmosphere and the company of compatriots to celebrate in the best national traditions, you are guaranteed. Artificial Christmas trees, festive illumination, lots of fireworks, but not against the snow, and on the beach. Although the Egyptians themselves do not celebrate New Year at this time, but for the dearest guests and prepare a hearty dinner and a colorful show. Great charm of this holiday is given by the opportunity to be photographed against the dressed up Christmas tree in a swimsuit and swimming trunks. No less extravagant look camels dressed up as Christmas deer. To not have to deal separately with the organization of a festive dinner, it is better to use the services of the hotel with an all-inclusive system.
The party will be over, the rest on the beach will be bored and it's time for excursions. What to see in Egypt? First and foremost, of course, the famous pyramids! Must-see pyramids are the three great pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx. For those who wish will be able to get inside the pyramid of Cheops, for a fee. Inside are three small burial chambers finished with smooth granite slabs. Near the main pyramids there is sometimes a light and music show, a mesmerizing sight to behold.
A favorite tourist attraction is Alexandria. This almost European city is famous for its powerful fort at the entrance to the bay. Equally famous is the unique Library of Alexandria. It is also interesting to see the Palace of Montazas, the Greco-Roman Museum, the palace of Ras al-Tin, and the Roman amphitheater. Tourists like Alexandria for the fact that the price level there is much lower than in most cities in Egypt.
Shopping in Egypt can turn into a real New Year's adventure. Numerous shops are filled with works of antiquity, which are very popular with visitors. Especially the stone statues of the gods and pharaohs. It should be remembered that bargaining in Egypt is not only appropriate, it is necessary. Initially the market prices are inflated by 10 or even 20 times! You should listen to the seller's price and offer your own. If you are not satisfied with the price, politely thank them and leave. A salesman who is willing to make concessions is sure to stop a potential buyer. There is another important thing not to forget. In Egypt, it is forbidden to sell antiquities that are more than a hundred years old. If your purchase looks like an antique, you must have permission to take it out of the country.
Pay attention to the signs of Passionelle, these are stores selling great chocolates and sweets. They use only natural products and are beautifully packaged at the customer's request.
