Overview

Egyptian Euphoria Tourism package:

 Egypt or Misr in local language, is a mystical land, probably one of the few which has history and mythology like India. Their ancient culture is very interesting with Pharaos, Mummies and Pyramids – all different from our culture. A planned holiday to Egypt is unlike most holiday experiences around the world, difficult to forget and a must do! Arabs in Egypt can be of different skin colours depending on their origin. So don’t be shocked to see fair ladies with golden hair speaking fluent Arabic and smoking Sheeshahs (hookas) in lobbies of fancy hotels. Their food is familiar to the non vegetarian Indian palate and there is no alcohol available outside 5 star hotel bars. In many ways the culture is Islamic and in many ways it is western. Cairo like New Delhi has a modern part and an old part (like the Walled city of Old Delhi). In the old part one can see tongas (horse drawn carriages) carrying trading wares from one place to another. The weather in many parts is hot and dry like that in semi deserts. There are many hotels and restaurants along the Nile. However, the main attractions are the museum and the Pyramids of Giza, guarded by the Lion headed Sphinx. Over 4,000 years ago, the mummified bodies of Kings Cheops, Kefren and Mykerinos were ferried down the Nile to be buried and prepared for the journey to the afterlife within these massive monuments. They are amazing in terms of size and one must go inside to see the funerary. A sound and light show here is also recommended. For the first time traveler, a short cruise on the Nile by night is relaxing. The cruise normally offers dinner, runs for about 2 hours and has a belly dancer on board. Those of us who have done short boat cruises in other destinations may not find this value for money. However, the recommended way to see Egypt beyond Cairo and the Giza is by a Nile Cruise up the Nile all the way to Aswan. From the sun deck, one can enjoy spectacular views over green fields and palm groves, slow-moving feluccas, picturesque villages and busy cities – the kaleidoscope of Egypt sparkles wherever you look. From Aswan to Luxor, every stopover brings you into close contact with mythological wonders, world-famous temples, the hustle of everyday life and the bustle of the souks (markets). Many Nile cruises are available depending on how much time and money one wants to spend

Egyptian Euphoria Tourism in visiting places:

        

On the second anniversary of the Egyptian revolution, it seems that everything is back to where it started.Exactly two years ago, hundreds of thousands of Egyptian people gathered at Tahrir Square. "We have no food, no education and no future. Mubarak, we have borne you for so long. The people demand the end of the regime," they shouted. Mubarak resisted for 18 days before announcing his resignation and handing power to the army.

Many changes have taken place in Egypt since then, but the real change is in the Egyptian people's low expectations.After the Egyptian presidential election in June 2012, the political transition roadmap drawn up by the Egyptian army was completed.But after that, the elected parliament was dissolved by Egypt's High Constitutional Court, which held that the makeup of the entire chamber was illegal. Egypt will hold new parliamentary elections this April.

Newly elected President Muhammad Morsi has also seen an end to his honeymoon period, and is facing tremendous doubts from liberal-secularists. More and more people now believe that he has done nothing positive in his new post.

Cairo-Aswan-Kom Ombo:

Cairo is a huge city with several district articles containing sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation listings — consider printing them all.Cairo is the capital of Egypt and, with a total population in excess of 16 million people, one of the largest cities in both Africa and the Middle East (the regions which it conveniently straddles). It is also the 19th largest city in the world, and among the world's most densely populated cities.

Aswan is the ancient city of Swenett, which in antiquity was the frontier town of Ancient Egypt facing the south. Swenett is supposed to have derived its name from an Egyptian goddess with the same name[citation needed]. This goddess later was identified as Eileithyia by the Greeks and Lucina by the Romans during their occupation of Ancient Egypt because of the similar association of their goddesses with childbirth, and of which the import is "the opener". The ancient name of the city also is said to be derived from the Egyptian symbol for trade.

he Temple of Kom Ombo is an unusual double temple built during the Ptolemaic dynasty in the Egyptian town of Kom Ombo.[1] Some additions to it were later made during the Roman period. The building is unique because its 'double' design meant that there were courts, halls, sanctuaries and rooms duplicated for two sets of gods.The southern half of the temple was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world with Hathor and Khonsu.[2] Meanwhile, the northern part of the temple was dedicated to the falcon god Haroeris, also known as Horus the Elder, along "with Tasenetnofret (the Good Sister, a special form of Hathor) and Panebtawy (Lord of the Two Lands)." The temple is atypical because everything is perfectly symmetrical along the main axis.
 

Edfu - Luxor:

 

Edfu (also spelt Idfu, or in modern French as Edfou, and known in antiquity as Behdet; Egyptian Arabic: إدفو  pronounced [ˈʔedfu]) is an Egyptian city, located on the west bank of the Nile River between Esna and Aswan, with a population of approximately sixty thousand people. For the ancient history of the city, see below. Edfu is the site of the Ptolemaic Temple of Horus and an ancient settlement, Tell Edfu (described below). About 5 km (3.1 mi) north of Edfu are remains of ancient pyramids.

Luxor was the ancient city of Thebes, the great capital of Egypt during the New Kingdom, and the glorious city of the god Amon-Ra. The city was regarded in the Ancient Egyptian texts as w3s.t (approximate pronunciation: "Waset"), which meant "city of the sceptre" and also as t3 ip3t (conventionally pronounced as "ta ipet" and meaning "the shrine") and then, in a later period, the Greeks called it Thebai and the Romans after them Thebae. Thebes was also known as "the city of the 100 gates", sometimes being called "southern Heliopolis" ('Iunu-shemaa' in Ancient Egyptian), to distinguish it from the city of Iunu or Heliopolis, the main place of worship for the god Re in the north. It was also often referred to as niw.t, which simply means "city", and was one of only three cities in Egypt for which this noun was used (the other two were Memphis and Heliopolis); it was also called niw.t rst, "southern city", as the southernmost of them.
