Egypt might seem like a cliche destination for your vacation and as a backpacker, you might not feel like the country is not worth visiting but there is a reason why it is so popular among tourists. After traveling through Egypt for 2 weeks, I realize that even though there were many tourists, there is just no other place like Egypt. Within this article, you will find everything you need to backpack through Egypt in 2 weeks. Without further ado, let’s begin!
Egypt and its ancient culture throughout the Nile has captivated and amazed travelers for centuries. From the sand-covered tombs of lost civilizations to the dusty barren desert of the Sahara, Egypt will bring out the adventurer in all of us. You get to learn the history of Ancient Egypt, see firsthand the ruins of the pinnacle of human achievements while acting out one of your favorite scene in the Indiana Jones movies. Now, tell me why you would not want to visit Egypt? 😛
October to April is usually the best time to visit due to mild weather but in my opinion, the crowds and the increase in price might ruin it for you. I would recommend shoulder seasons like June or September where you will have the best of both worlds, with fewer people, ok weather, and not too expensive.
