Its magnificent landscapes and the Great Pyramid attract crowds of tourists. Travelers from all over the world flock to this idyllic country to experience its many unique attractions.

This warm African territory has almost everything a tourist needs: from the turquoise sandy sea to historical and natural attractions. However, there are also unique gems that should be included in your Egyptian itinerary. Newsbytesapp.com writes about it.

Immerse yourself in the lost city of Heracleion

Ancient Egyptian texts describe a lost city that sank thousands of years ago. Today, you can see it lying 6.5 km off the coast of Alexandria. It contains about 64 ships, 700 anchors, tons of gold coins, huge statues 16 feet high, and several ruins of ancient temples, all submerged.

Explore the City of the Dead

Zawiyet al-Mayyitin, located in Al Minya, is known as the City of the Dead. This vast cemetery stretches for several kilometers and has countless white conical domes that resemble gentle sea waves. It holds historical significance, as it has been used by both Muslims and Coptic Christians since the beginning of the 3rd Dynasty. When visiting, it is important to dress modestly to show respect for this sacred place.

Visit Wadi al-Hitan

Wadi al-Hitan or the Valley of the Whales is a vast area of rocks, soil, and fossilized whale remains. The scattered bones on the ground belong to a long-extinct suborder of whales known as "archaeocetes," indicating that modern whales were once land animals.

Go scuba diving in Hurghada

If you are looking for an adrenaline rush, the Red Sea coast in Egypt is the place for you. Here you can go diving or snorkeling in the crystal-clear sea and experience the essence of this beautiful country from underwater.

Take a walk in the White Desert National Park

Not far from Cairo, there is a desert with large white chalky rocks that will make you feel like you are walking on the moon. They are white because of centuries of erosion and sandstorms, and what's even more interesting is that this phenomenon has also led to some natural unique formations such as ice cream and mushroom statues. Additionally, you can pitch a tent here.
