if it's your first visit to egypt then the giza pyramids and sphinx are a must see! you shouldn't also miss cairo national museum housing Tut Ankh A MOUN GOLDEN TREASURES, next visit the citadel of salah el din and mohamed ali alabaster mosque,also you could see old cairo moalaka church and khan el khalil bazaars.if you have enough time go to sakara djoser step pyramid,memphis and dahshour bent pyramid and red pyramid.In alexandria ,go to see the citadel,the catacomb,pompey pillar,roman theatre,alexandria library,montaza royale gardens and palaces.if you are interested in beaches,water sports,diving and snorkling you should go to sharm el sheikh,hurgada,dahab,or ras mohamed.
one visit to egypt is not enough to see it all,because you should spend a couple of days in luxor and aswan to see karnak temple and hatshepsut deir el bahari temple and many other monuments.egypt has endless experiences that will never stop to amaze you.
