5 Things to Do in Egypt for Your Next Trip

Throughout its history, Egypt has been one of the best destinations in the world. With its rich roots of diverse cultures, antiques, and various religious monuments, the mix of all this surely does increase its charm. Another reason why Egypt has always been on top of travel destinations is because of its surreal geographical location and the beautiful climate conditions it has to offer.

Vast deserts, magnificent coastlines, hundreds of kinds of aquatic life, mountains, and the enchanted River Nile all make for a fantastic journey. Not only does Egypt contain the gorgeous cities – Cairo, Alexandria, and Giza – but it also has a plethora of things to see, do, and shop for. Here are six things to do the next time you are in Egypt.

1. Scuba diving at Hurghada

The Egyptian Red Sea coast is known for Hurghada, which offers a variety of entertaining activities to do in Egypt in December. The breathtaking scenery, including coral reefs, crystal blue oceans, and sandy shoreline, makes this an ideal location for diving and snorkeling. The blue waters with rich coral life are one place where you invest your time and money for a new scuba dive is worth it!

2. Hot air balloon- Luxor

View Ancient Egypt’s wonders from a higher vantage point. Glide over the Pharaohs’ pyramids, monuments, and burial grounds, and explore one of history’s most storied times from a unique perspective that only a hot air balloon can provide. Luxor is a living museum, and a balloon journey there is a once-in-a-lifetime event.

3. Skydiving at the pyramids

If the concept of throwing yourself out of a plane gives you a rush, this is a step up: you can throw yourself out of the plane while looking down on a world wonder. While looking at the pyramids from the foot of it seems really mind-boggling, having an aerial look is something that you should try!

4. Rock climbing in Dahab

Rock climbing and bouldering in Dahab’s desert mountains may be for you if you enjoy being outside and working up a sweat in an extreme fashion. Rock climbing is self-explanatory, but don’t expect the simple indoor gym variety; we’re talking about actual crags and mountain faces here. The good news is that rock climbing courses for beginners, intermediates, and experts are available in Dahab, so there’s something for everyone.

5. Stargazing in the Sinai desert

In the solitude of the desert, get away from the crowded resorts and marvel at the sky’s stars. There are a variety of packages available, but the majority involve a camel ride from Sharm El Sheikh to the desert, as well as food and entertainment. An astronomer will also accompany you on your journey through the stars and planets.

6. Fish at Lake Nasser

The Nile perch is the world’s largest freshwater fish, and it lives in Lake Nasser. In this tranquil, distant region, you can also catch Tigerfish and Moonfish. If you’re searching for a peaceful area to unwind, this is the spot for you; you might even catch a prize fish!

So here are a few spots that we think you can include in your itinerary the next time you plan your trip to Egypt!

Hidden Gems You Must Visit at Least Once in New York

New York – and famous sights like the Brooklyn Bridge – attract a large number of visitors. Culture vultures are kept delighted by art galleries, history museums, and world-class Broadway plays, while shopaholics are teased by massive department shops, and world-trotting foodies are satisfied by restaurants. However, life in the Big Apple goes well beyond the tourist hotspots and well-known landmarks.

New York is a tourist’s paradise! What do you get when you mix millions of people, diverse cultures, stunning architecture, delectable cuisine, and world-class museums? Exploring this city is an absolute must. Travel Gooru brings you the top 7 hidden gems that you must visit at least once on your next trip to the big apple.

1. Overlook park

Not only does Overlook Park in Cohoes includes one of New York’s most beautiful waterfalls, but it also has lots of areas to explore or set up picnics with a view.
Falls View Park, located nearby, is a 192-foot-long pedestrian bridge that spans the School Street Power canal, offering stunning views and glimpses into Cohoes’ industrial past.

2. Sundown wild forest

Mountain ridges overlooking forest canopy and stunning sunsets are part of the appeal of this 30,100-acre park in the southeast Catskills, as is its name. Sundown Wild Forest, on the other hand, has a lot more to offer, from hiking paths to waterfalls and meandering trout streams.
Outdoor enthusiasts, fishermen, mountain bikers, and those seeking lonely walks in the woods—and, of course, anyone who appreciates a beautiful sunset—all go to this spot.

3. Museum of ice cream

In a city full of well-known museums, there’s one that’s still off the beaten path — and it’s the best. The Museum of Ice Cream, dubbed “paradise” by sweet-toothed tourists, offers an interactive and lickable experience.
Spend the afternoon swimming in a sprinkled river, exploring the chocolate area, and sampling the huge ice cream sundae. Each summer, the museum pops up in a new place, and its email keeps you up to date on where it will be.

4. ‘Please don’t tell’ secret bar

During the Prohibition era, hidden bars rose to fame, and while there is no longer a need to hide, secret bars are finding their way back into the limelight. The entrance to Please Don’t Tell is hidden between 1st Avenue and Avenue A; only those who are “in the know” enter a phone box, pick up the phone, and buzz once.
If you’re allowed in, a door in the wall opens and you’re led into a tiny bar for a night of exquisite cocktails, delicious food, and, most importantly, cool secrecy.

5. Selkirk Shores State park

Selkirk Shores State Park has something for everyone, with 980 acres of Lake Ontario shoreline and a small boat launch with access to the nearby Salmon River. The lake’s beach attracts swimmers, but it’s also a popular sunset and bird-watching spot.
Visitors can go fishing in the lake or on the river, and can stay for a night or longer—campsites and cabins are available, making this a terrific way to see this hidden jewel amid one of New York’s biggest hidden gems, the Thousand Islands!
