Coptic Museum in Cairo has the World’s Largest Collection of Coptic Artifacts

The Coptic Museum in Cairo has the world’s largest collection of coptic artifacts. I find this museum more interesting than the overcrowded Egyptian Museum in downtown Cairo. But these two have one thing in common – lack of interesting descriptions. I think when you’re visiting Cairo, you should divide your sightseeing in three ways: Pyramids, Islamic […]

The Grand Al Mursi Mosque

The grand Al Mursi Mosque in Alexandria is devoted to a great Sufi Saint Abul Abbas al-Mursi. In fact, his body is laid here. This is a very historical mosque where both males and females can go in and worship but separately. I wasn’t planning to visit this place but I got lost looking for […]

Mediterranean Sunset in Alexandria (Montaza Palace Gardens) Egypt

Mediterranean Sunset in Alexandria

Mediterranean sunset in Alexandria is, oh boy, breathtaking. While I was in Alexandria last month, a local couchsurfer (Thanks, Abdulazziz!) brought me to Montaza Palace Gardens. This park is huge and there were only few people when we were there. Its lush green, well-manicured gardens are good for an afternoon walk or picnic. This is a […]

View from Cairo Tower on a Polluted Day (Egypt).

View from Cairo Tower on a Polluted Day

If someone told you that the view from Cairo Tower is amazing don’t fully believe him. There’s nothing spectacular from up there. It was not even breathtaking for me. I wasn’t that impressed. But, hey, I was there on a polluted day, so, you can’t blame me for this impression. I couldn’t see the beauty […]

Photos: Inside the Red Pyramid in Cairo

Going inside the Red Pyramid in Cairo is an experience worth doing. It might be hard for those who have fear of closed spaces but you’d never regret it. You’ll reach the bosom of the Pyramid in your own time and emerge victorious. For some people, there’s “nothing to see there” but for me, it answers the […]

This is what you see inside the Red Pyramid in Egypt. It is said to be the world’s oldest true pyramids. This is located at Dahshur, 20 kilometres away from the famous trio of Pyramids in Giza. Don’t be fooled by its name though. The whole facade of the pyramid has nothing red on it. […]

Steps of Repentance at Mt. Sinai.

The Steps of Repentance

You can’t miss the Steps of Repentance when you climb Mt Sinai (aka Moses Mountain). It’s a steep climb that would really make you think to repent all your sins – unless if you’re an atheist who’ll probably think it’s just another tourist scam. 😀 There are two authorized walking / climbing trails to Moses […]
