Where to travel in 2024?
The big question for many people now, as the world is slowly getting back to the norm, is where can I travel in 2024?
People began to consider taking a vacation, either domestically or internationally. The first thing that comes to mind is the “Open Destinations” and the Covid restrictions. So the question becomes, “Where can I travel in 2024?
My response to this question is that there are many destinations that are open to international tourism and eagerly await tourists. Egypt is one of these top destinations. The cradle of civilization, the land of the pharaohs, and the home of contrast and wonders. Egypt, where everything begins, has a plethora of travel and leisure opportunities, as well as a rich history. Egypt has a rich history, magnificent monuments, River Nile cruises, desert, beaches, delectable cuisines, and friendly people.
Can I travel to Egypt in 2024?
Yes, you certainly can. Since July 2020, Egypt has been open to international tourism. No need for Covid test to travel to Egypt. The majority of hotels, attractions, restaurants, pubs, and beaches are currently operating at 75% of their capacity.

Things to DO in Egypt:
Here is a list of the great and must-see attractions in Egypt;
The Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx:
Visit the only ancient wonder that still exists, the Great Pyramid of Khufu at Giza Plateau. The Egyptian pyramids are very human monuments. Imagine the pyramids 4000 years ago when they were complete with their limestone casings, their brilliance must have been blinding.
The puzzles of how the Egyptians built their pyramids are endlessly fascinating. Many theories have appeared through time. Theories vary a lot, aliens, sleds, and ramps have all been suggested.

The impressive Egyptian Museum in Cairo:
The Egyptian Museum in Cairo is one of the largest and most important museums in the world. The museum contains more than 120,000 pieces from all periods of Ancient Egyptian history. It was designed by the French Architect Marcel Dourgnon and built by an Italian company in 1902 during the time of Khedive Abbas Helmi II.
The magnificent Valley of the Kings in Luxor:
The Valley of the Kings is one of the most important highlights not only in Luxor but throughout Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians named it (Ta-Iset-Ma’at), which means “the Place of Truth”. The Valley of the Kings is the necropolis of the great Egyptian pharaohs of the 18th to the 20th Dynasty (1550-1080 BCE). Tuthmosis I was the first pharaoh who was buried at the Valley of the Kings while Ramses XI was the last pharaoh who was buried there.
The massive Karnak Temple in Luxor:
The Temple/Complex of Karnak was the great god’s chief sanctuary and much larger than any other monument in Egypt. It lies about 3km north of Luxor Temple. This huge and splendid complex which actually contains many separate temples covers 1700 years of expansion and an area of 300 acres.

Abu Simbel Temples:
The Temples of Abu Simbel are considered among the most celebrated achievements of ancient Egypt. The two temples were cut in the cliffs about 310 Km south of Aswan. The Great Temple was built for Ramses II (1279-1213 BC), while the Small Temple was built for his beloved wife, Queen Nefertari. The world operation to rescue the temples from the waters of Lake Nasser which was created by Aswan High Dam is really a magnificent engineering feat.
