Egypt Travel Bucket List | Spectacular Sites

Like all my others, my Egypt Travel Bucket List has been steadily growing over the years. There is an endless array of spectacular landmarks and experiences just waiting for you in Egypt. But because of everything that has happened there, many travellers have been too afraid to visit. Whilst some areas in Egypt are deemed unsafe, the British government estimated 415,000 British nationals visited Egypt in 2018 and most visits were trouble-free.

When I went to Egypt a few years ago, I managed to check some incredible, once-in-a-lifetime adventures off my Egypt Travel Bucket List. I took a cruise down the Nile River, visited a plethora of temples that had a multitude of remarkable hieroglyphs and wondered at the staggering beauty and preservation of the Valley of the Kings and Queens. Since then, I’ve been dreaming and learning about the other unbelievable things Egypt has to offer that everyone should at some point visit.

Don’t believe me? Check out my Egypt Travel Bucket List that unarguably will make you want to see and experience Egypt! My list covers ancient Egyptian sites and archaeological ruins, including the sensational Giza Pyramid and glorious Egyptian temples of Abu Simbel, Luxor, and Edfu. Additionally, my list covers the most beautiful places in Egypt, from unique Roman catacombs to biblical Mount Sinai.
