When I was in Egypt talking to locals about tourism, they would mention how it has been a bit of a struggle in recent years.
“That’s because we only hear about Egypt when something blows up” I would tell them.
I could see the disappointment in their eyes when I told them the type of news we got, & the disappointment would turn to hope when they would say “make sure you share some good stuff with your website”.
It’s easy to write Egypt off as too dangerous or too scary based on what we see on TV, but the media isn’t telling the full story.
Here’s one of my efforts to share some of the good stuff & there are a lot of guides & tips on my website too. Now it’s your turn, help me share this around by tagging someone who has Egypt on their bucket list!
After visiting Luxor temple, I was stunned by the work of 1400 BC craftsmen, also i can say Pharaohs were obsessed with these humongous pillars.
It requires one day to see both Karnak and luxor temple. Heat of the city will destroy your experience, so i would suggest first go to Karnak in around 4-5 pm and then visit luxor after sunset because it's lit and night experience of temple would be something different.
🚨 First restaurant review by EatBakeLoveWW ( we are super honest as you can see below) :
Piazzini Restaurant in New Cairo behind Dusit Thani.
The place has a nice ambience with both indoors and outdoors areas. The indoors area is more classy. Not the my no 1 pick for food, but as an affordable place for gatherings this is where you should head.
We tried several courses plus an appetizer.
- Gamberi Fritti fried mushrooms: breaded fried mushrooms that tasted like chicken panee (couldn’t finish the plate)
- Salami Pizza: THE WINNER of the day, the crust was on point, ingredients fresh and tasty, sauce tasted great and the pizza was very cheesy 😋 - Pesto pasta: how i love it to be.. extra pesto 😋 recommended
- Pollo ai Funghi Chicken plate: the creamy sauce was good, the chicken cut wasn’t very smooth, the mash potatoes is Ok, wedges were bad.
- La Bistecca ribeye steak: was a disaster!! Avoid avoid avoid!!
