    I'm going to Egypt in a few months and although I'm going for school, I would love to get my share of site seeing and meringue new people.
    I'm staying in October city but I understand that it is 'a new suburb/city' so I'm worried I won't have places to tour and places to go InshALLAH.

    Do you know of the city?
    What are the best places to go?

    Wasalamu alaykum

    You are gonna love it. I lived in Egypt for 7 years but it was when I was young.
    Here is what I found on a site:

    Top 10 attractions of Egypt are:


    1. PYRAMIDS:
    There are more than 80 pyramids in Egypt which were built mostly between 2600 BC and 1500 BC and all are situated close to the Nile river. After the ruler died (or other prominent royal figures like queens), their bodies were wrapped and preserved as a mummy, and placed in the Pyramid. The most popular pyramids are the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx: An estimated 20,000 to 30,000 workers built the Pyramids at Giza over 80 years. Giza also has the largest pyramid also known as "Great Pyramid" which rises an amazing 481 feet.

    2. CAIRO:
    It is the capital of Egypt. Popular attractions of Cairo include:
    a) Khan al-Khalili market: Khan al-Khalili is one of the largest markets in the world which attracts both local's and international tourists. This is a great place to but exotic perfume bottles, Arabic clothing and other souvenirs.
    b) Egyptian Museum of Antiquities: It have over hundred thousand artifacts in 107 halls. The most popular attraction is the Tutankhamun Gallery.
    c) Other attractions are Pyramids of Giza (mentioned above) and Old Cairo.

    The area is famous for its dates and olives, and is one of the most beautiful landscapes and springs in Egypt. It was the most inaccessible oasis until recently. It lies 60 feed below sea level.

    7: NUBIAN MUSEUM OF ASWAN:
    It is designed to house the fantastic collection items unearthed from the archaeological excavations during the Nubia Campaign.

    The Valley of the Kings is located on the West Bank of the River Nile in Thebes. There are 62 tombs in the valley. It has two components - the East Valley and the West Valley. It is the East Valley which most tourists visit and in which most of the tombs of the New Kingdom Pharaohs can be found.
