Egypt is an extremely rich country in its historical context In such a context, it is easy to understand why tourism is an important component of its gross national product. The well-being of the Egyptian economy depends heavily on a good year of tourism. All tourist activity is based on ancient monuments and relics of the past, but in recent years there has been a great effort to create modern tourist attractions. such as resorts and golf courses. Combinations of old and new attractions make up the largest sector of the Egyptian economy. For the most part, it is said that Egypt consists essentially of six different tourist sites.
Best places in Egypt
Three of the sites; Alexandria, Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh are coastal hot spots. They consist of many newer resorts offering many activities to its customers such as water sports, casinos, discos and golf courses. These three sites would be considered the most modern sites. The other three sites; Aswan, Cairo, and Luxor are the most historic tourist sites. Although Aswan does not have as many historical monuments, the other two, Cairo and Luxor, are full of them.
These sites are strongly tourist-oriented and offer a wide variety of transport and guided tours (Egyptian ministry). Some of these sites include some of the most impressive and ancient monuments known to man.
Now when you hear the word Egypt for the first time, you focus your attention directly on the Great Pyramids of Giza. It is easily one of the most visited monuments in Egypt and one of the biggest tourist attractions in the world.
Sphinx the Father of terror
The ancient Greeks considered the pyramids to be one of the seven wonders of the world. Another of the great monuments of ancient Egyptian society is the Sphinx. One of the biggest things about the Sphinx is that its purpose is still unknown and very controversial. The Sphinx is known in Arabic as Abu El Hol, which means “Father of terror”.
the Egyptian Pyramids
The pyramids are still standing today and are great attractions for tourists. The pyramids were built by carrying granite blocks to the workshop, measuring the blocks to measure, forming the blocks and placing the blocks in the body of the pyramid. The core of the structure is now complete.
Then, place the limestone blocks on top of the structure (they started placing the blocks on top and then descended). They left two empty rooms to place the pharaoh and his belongings. They sealed the pyramids so well that it took four hundred years for two thieves to discover how to enter.
Free citizens, recruited for public work, not by slaves of any order, built the pyramids. Four thousand expert stone sculptors built the pyramids throughout the year. An additional workgroup of approximately ninety-five thousand men worked in the pyramids during the four-month period of the flood (the forced downtime for farmers, since the field, was covered with the Nile flood). The pyramids were built between the year 1600 B.C. and the year 2700.

the Egyptian government considers nubia as a Tourist attraction It was a city neglected by previous governments.
In ancient times, people who lived on the banks of the Nile River developed sophisticated civilizations. Ancient Egypt, which extends from the first waterfall to the Mediterranean Sea, is probably the best known ancient culture in this area, and this group of people was called the Nubians.
The Nubians inhabited the area along the Nile River from the First Waterfall south to the Sixth Waterfall.
Currently, there is no political entity called Nubia. Part of the area that was known as Nubia is in Egypt and the other part is in the Republic of Sudan. A large part of the northern part of ancient Nubia is currently submerged under the reservoir formed behind the Egyptian High Dam in Aswan.
During the warm season in Nubia, the temperature of the day can reach up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. But during the rest of the year, the temperature during the night falls near the freezing point. In the northern part of Nubia, it is almost impossible to see appreciable rain.
However, in the southern part of Nubia, there is a rainy season. It rains during the months of July and August. The main climatic condition that affected the Nubians was the prevailing winds. Dominant winds can cause problems with agricultural fields and villages.
But still, there was something good about the prevailing winds, because the winds blow throughout the year from the north and because the river’s current flows in the opposite direction, the winds allow you to navigate the Nile in both directions. This helped the Nubian in many ways. He helped them take their food from different places and travel easily.
