The Top 5 Places in Egypt

5. Dahab


Dahab is located north of Sharm el-Sheikh on the Gulf of Aqaba, near the southern tip of Sinai. Once an empty coastal Village, Dahab became a hippie hangout in the 1980’s and became an “alternative resort,” with a cheap accommodation and a laid back lifestyle. With fun activities such as wind surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving and camel and jeep riding along one of the most popular places along the red sea.



4. Siwa Oasis

Located in the Libyan Desert, Siwa Oasis is one of Egypt’s isolated settlements. Located on the old date trade route, Siwa was an oasis to the trade route, as the natural springs and shade giving travelers respite. In recent decades tourism has become the vital source of income. Much attention has been given to creating hotels that use local materials and play on local styles.

Cruising the Nile is a great way of visiting upper Egypt. The Nile River has been Egypt’s lifeline since ancient times and there is no better way to trace the passage of Egypt’s history than to follow the course of the Nile.

Physical Description

The Nile Valley, including the delta, is Egypt’s most notable physical feature. For thousands of years this narrow, densely populated area of land, with it’s fertile soils and reliable supply of water, has nurtured Egyptian civilization.

South of Cairo, the area known as upper Egypt, the valley varies from 1 to 13 miles.

North of Cairo, the area known as lower Egypt, the flat delta begins, it fans out to a maximum width of about 150 miles along the Mediterranean coast.


Culture

ABC's of Egypt's culture

Appearance: The people of Egypt look like regular people because they where clothing like us.But there dancing is way different than our dancing because they wear they were a long silk dress, and little diamonds on there crown thingy. Also men wore a wrapped skirt that was tied by the waist. Sometimes it would be wrapped around there legs. The woman's would wear straight dresses with shoulder straps. The children couldn't wear any clothes until they were at least six years old and they would just wear the exact well not exact but the same thing as the men or woman wear. They are barefoot most of the time but they also would were sandals, and the weird thing is that men and woman wear make up isn't that weird. Eating: In egypt they eat different kind of things. They eat beef,beans,garlic, bread, furits and etc.I also think that they pray before they eat their food. Music/art: Well egyptians love listening to music with clapping,singing of course and instruments. Thats just want is in important to there life. I think they listen to music when they worship have holidays and parties. Family: In egypt the woman has a lot of rights to do stuff. So what I am trying to say is that the woman plays a big role in the family. Like the woman can do something without a male having disagreement. Like for example a woman can adopt children,free slaves,and sue people with out a male disagreemet like I said a minute ago. That is the woman role for egypt. Belief: Muslims believes in fasting. Fasting is when you don't eat. They think that fasting is important and that they need fasting because they believe that people fast because there suffering. Like for example when we sick we need medicine so it just like fasting they believe that we need fasting to get rid of our sins. They also fast to get away from the hellfire and if you do not know what that is you can watch the video below. They also believe that you should stick with fasting because there is nothing like it.
These are the clothes that they wear in Egypt.



About fasting

Why must Muslims fast? Ramadan Mubarak!

Economy

Occupying the northeast corner of the African continent, Egypt is bisected by the highly fertile Nile valley, where most economic activity takes place. Egypt's economy was highly centralized during the rule of former President Gamal Abdel NASSER but opened up considerably under former Presidents Anwar EL-SADAT and Mohamed Hosni MUBARAK. Cairo from 2004 to 2008 aggressively pursued economic reforms to attract foreign investment and facilitate GDP growth. Despite the relatively high levels of economic growth in recent years, living conditions for the average Egyptian remained poor and contributed to public discontent. After unrest erupted in January 2011, the Egyptian Government backtracked on economic reforms, drastically increasing social spending to address public dissatisfaction, but political uncertainty at the same time caused economic growth to slow significantly, reducing the government's revenues. Tourism, manufacturing, and construction were among the hardest hit sectors of the Egyptian economy, and economic growth is likely to remain slow during the next several years. The government drew down foreign exchange reserves by more than 50% in 2011 and 2012 to support the Egyptian pound and the dearth of foreign financial assistance - as a result of unsuccessful negotiations with the International Monetary Fund over a multi-billion dollar loan agreement which have dragged on more than 20 months - could precipitate fiscal and balance of payments crises in 2013
