Karnak Temple, Luxor, Egypt
It’s hard not to feel the draw of Egypt’s thousands of years of history. Standing witness to the last ancient Wonder of the World – the Great Pyramid of Giza – is reason enough to make the trip, but it is merely one of many compelling reasons.
In Cairo, listen to the call to prayer as you head out to explore this incredible city - the Mosque of Muhammad Ali, the Hanging Church and the Saladin Citadel in the central part of the town are must-sees. Plan to spend some time wandering Khan el-Khalili, Cairo’s large souk, or market, with its mind-boggling array of shops and vendors – photography opportunities (and bargains) are found in every aisle of the bazaar.
