If you've been reading this blog regularly for awhile, you know that I have quite a few Middle Eastern friends especially from Saudi Arabia and Iran. The last time we went to Langkawi together, we all had a great time there! One of the reasons was because of my Egyptian friend; Lili joined us for the trip too!

Lili used to invite us to her house for some Egyptian food (dishes were a cross between Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine) during her stay in Malaysia. There, she told us A LOT about her country and she was very proud of The Sphinx and of course the famous Pyramids, when the Great Pyramid was deemed one of the original Seven Wonders of the World.

They admired the Pyramids by night with breathtaking shows. Here you can learn more about the magnificent story of the history of the Pyramids and glory of the Pharaohs through lyric, light and sound. Nothing beats a ride through the desert and then a stop on the hill to watch the sun set over the pyramids!

The Avenue of the Sphinx which leads to the temple of Luxor.

The winter months are a good time to visit Egypt when the temperatures lie comfortably in the twenties. The summer months can reach up to forty degrees in the cities and although it is a little cooler at the coast it remains very hot. According to her, the best time to pick up a bargain cheap Egypt holidays would be if you're looking to book in May, June, November or December.

Long gone are the days when the word Egypt conjured up images of camels and sand. Egypt is a country with incredible history and culture. The list of attractions is as long as the Nile itself!

It's not hard to imagine a luxury holiday in Egypt: *picture myself floating down the Nile with romantic lure of a Nile River cruise, enjoy the delights of a traditional Belly Dancer or relaxing at a swish Cairo hotel and I'm almost there!*

Yeah! To them, the pyramids are their symbol of pride. Something which is really close to their heart. Then your friend must be happy that the latest Transformer movie is filmed at Egypt?
