Among the oldest civilizations in the world, Egypt is an ancient land which dates back to the roughly 6th millennia BC. The country has seen some of the earliest developments in urbanisation, writing, agriculture, central government, and organised religion. Egypt is famed for its iconic monuments, the Great Sphinx, Giza Necropolis, as well as the ruins of Karnak, Thebes, Memphis, and the Valley of the Kings. The country is home to multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites, namely, Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis, Saint Catherine Area, Nubian Monuments from Abu Simbel to Philae, and Abu Mena. In addition to its historic treasures, visitors will find here vast tracts of desert, the famed Nile River, and spectacular superb scuba diving sites. Beach lovers can head to Sinai, while archaeology enthusiasts will have a field day in Luxor. The country’s capital Cairo is a bustling megalopolis, while Aswan is a quaint town in the countryside. Other major attractions in Egypt are Ras Muhammad National Park, White Desert, Siwa Oasis, beaches of Dahab, Temple of Osiris, Egyptian Museum, and Wadi Al-Hitan Valley (UNESCO World Heritage Site).
