A Closer Look at Egypt’s Wonders

Although several tourists visit Egypt to enjoy the favourable yearlong warm climate or to relax at a luxurious beach resort, this fascinating country also boasts a number of remarkable natural and manmade wonders, which should not be missed.
Attempting to visit each and every one of these monuments might be a little bit ambitious, but for those planning Egypt holidays in the near future, here is a little more detail on the most significant and spellbinding attractions this country has to offer.

Great Pyramid of Giza
No trip to Egypt would be complete without taking your time to see the Great Pyramid of Giza. Over the course of its 2,500-year history, not much has changed, but it is sure to be one of the most breath taking sites you’ll ever behold.
Thought to been built as a tomb for Fourth Dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, it took around 20 years to construct. But today, the Great Pyramid is the only remaining ancient Wonder of the World and surely this is reason enough to pay it a visit.

Old Cairo
In spite of its proximity to the Great Pyramid, Cairo was founded in the 10th Century as a Muslim city. Although some tourists won’t like the hustle and bustle of Egypt’s capital, Old Cairo should be an essential item on any itinerary.
Here you will find the Mohamed Ali Mosque, one of the largest of the old Muslim world and a stunning piece of architecture. Along with taking a trip to the Citadel, which affords views out to the Giza plateau, the souqs (markets) are also highly recommended if you want to sample a little local flavour.

Temple of Luxor
Located on the east bank of the Nile, this ancient temple complex was dedicated to the Theban Triad of Amun-Re, his wife Mut, and his son Khonsu. Follow in the footsteps of ancient Egyptians as you walk down a path lined with sphinxes, which once led the way to Ipet Sut in the modern city of Al-Karnak.
The Temple of Luxor is perhaps best known for its astonishing obelisk, which is still intact at the entrance. While here, you may want to visit the Temple of Karnak as well, which is by far the biggest temple complex in Egypt.

Abu Simbel
This archaeological site comprising of two temples was created during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC. It took around 20 years to build and is widely considered to be one of the grandest in Egypt. However, arguably the most extraordinary thing about Abu Simbel is that the entire complex was moved in the 1960s to protect it against the rising water of the Aswan High Dam.
You may not be able to experience and enjoy all of Egypt’s wonders, but you’ll be rewarded with some long-lasting memories for the ones you do see, as every sight reflects the majesty of this ancient nation.

Create Ice Sculpture or Figures

There's so much snow around you and you got tired shovelling already, then learn to make ice sculpture or figures in your very own backyard. The winter is not yet leaving so why not make the best of it? Aside from exercising your arms and torso, you are also unleashing another side of you that you didn't know was there - the artist in you! Your ice sculpture need not be ala-Micheal Angelo's creations nor the ones you can see in Harbin, China but the point is, have fun, your resources are free! All you need is a trowel and a some pails and a whole lot of imagination.

Go Ice-Skating

I ice-skate on fake ice. That is, I go in an ice-skating rink inside a mall in the middle of a desert and you are really lucky to be able to enjoy nature's beauty in all it's natural glory. I have to make do o the fake ice here just to have a feel of how it's like to ice-skate. So, if you know how to ice-skate, skate away! If there's a nearby park with a pond and skating is safe and allowed, go ahead and enjoy. Make sure you're reading signs for thin ice too. Tag your friends along. The more the merrier. But, never skate along. Always make sure there are lots of people around you.

Clean your house/room

So, you can actually write an entire blog post on your counter top because of all those dust. How about doing a winter cleaning? Not only will you exercise your whole body but you will also be able to throw away stuff you don't need. Time to re-organize and de-clutter if you're stuck at home and have nowhere to go. There's so much to do and you have all the time to do it.

Decorate your home

Put up some nice sunny photos or change your curtains and bed sheets with bright, happy colors. This will remind you of summer and will surely enhance your mood.

Read a good book

It's nice to sit by the fireplace, drinking hot cocoa and reading your favourite book. We get caught up with our lives that we seldom step back and just enjoy the simple, quiet moments of being at home. Maybe you've been delaying to read that book, now's the right time.

Teach your pet a new trick

Maybe your pet needs to learn a new trick too and while being stuck at home because of the harsh winter, your pet will love your company even more because that means, endless play time with him or her.
