The demonstrations in Egypt have emptied the hotels and cruise ships, but the tourists are returning and most Egyptians hope the recovery will be quick. A large number of the population works in the tourism industry. There is hope that in the long run the revolution and its outcome will boost business.
The most recognizable and popular tourist site in Egypt, the pyramids are filled with legends and mysteries. Located in Giza, the Great Pyramid is known as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Built during the second century B.C., these pyramids stand as witnesses of the Egyptians architectural and engineering mastery. They have been studied by many archaeologists and have been the subject of thousands of articles. Your visit is not complete until you see these ancient structures.
World cruises can cost anything from $50,000 to $200,000, and that easily falls into the category of unaffordable for many people. The wealthy people who book these cruises are able to afford the best of the best, so it’s highly unlikely they’ll opt for the inside cabin (a cabin with no view). Great deals can be found if you’re game for booking an inside cabin, that’s possible even on luxury ships. A little hunting around and consulting various travel agents will yield optimum results and you can come across fares as low as $120 day. If you keep in mind that this is going to be a vacation lasting over three months, that’s a pretty good deal.
This city, however, remained buried under the desert sands until an excavation in the mid 19th century uncovered it. It is an ancient site that is worth a visit.
Most Egypt Nile Cruise visit Luxor on the site of ancient Thebes. Here you will see the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, ancient Egypt’s longest ruling female pharaoh, who reigned from approximately1490 – 1468 B.C. Some historians believe that she was the Pharaoh’s daughter that drew Moses out of the Nile. At the northern end of town is the sprawling Karnak complex of temples built over a span of about 1,500 years. As you walk from the front to the back it is like walking back in time.
Sometimes, a Carnival 2 day cruise can take you to the same worldwide destinations as the 17 day cruises. You can travel to New England, Alaska, Europe, Caribbean and other places. The Carnival Miracle has short cruises from places like to New York to the Caribbean. On one of these cruise you can experience a little of the things that offered on a longer cruise. There’s many international cuisines and the option of made to order at the Carnival Miracle Lido Restaurant. You can dine in the Carnival Miracle Bacchus dining room. Other highlights on this ship are shows at the Phantom, Mad Hatter’s Ball, a sing along at Sam’s piano bar and Raven Library and Internet Cafe.
Location is especially true if you intend to rent your Luxor home out. Tourists want to be conveniently located in central Luxor not needing a taxi every time they want a loaf of bread from the local souk. An Egyptian property can provide you with a useful rental income as well as capital return. In Egypt rentals are a fast growing market. Judging by the recovery after previous events it will not be long before Egypt is growing at 10% again and you will be sharing in that growth.
