Do These 5 Non-Mainstream Things in Egypt

You see it on Nicholas Saputra’s IG feed, exploring Egypt is indeed one of the most interesting travel venues to do. From Okezone and Globotreks, Letter F found out top 5 cool things to do in Egypt.

1. Quad Biking in the Sinai Desert
Whether you’re a thrill seeker and just want to hit the sand dunes in a careless way or you’re an adventurous traveler that prefers to visit some of the desert sights in style, instead of the tour bus; Quad Biking in the desert has proven to be a fun and more interesting way to experience the Sinai Desert.

2. The Step Pyramid and the Bent Pyramid

The Step pyramid is the precursor to the “real” pyramids as it is the transition between the mastabas and the triangular pyramids. The Step Pyramid is like a wedding cake, with each mastaba being a layer of that cake. Then there’s the Bent Pyramid, which is one of the first “real” pyramids and there’s an interesting story behind it. When commissioned by the Pharaoh Snefuru, the art of building pyramids was not well developed. Halfway through construction, the architect noticed that the angle in which it was being built would not support the weight of the pyramid, so he redesigned it with a shallower angle and hence the bent look it has today.

3. Scuba Dive or Snorkel the Red Sea
The Red Sea is a unique body of water with a marvelous Coral Reef and underwater scenery. There are many diving spots in the area and even more dive companies that will want to take you there, so there’s no lack of choices there.

4. Desert Safari
The Sinai Desert and the Western Desert of Egypt are two great places to go for desert safaris. These can be done either on bikes, cars, trucks, or camels. You just choose the one you’d like the most according to the type of adventures you like. Have in mind that the sun is hot in the desert, so stay hydrated and use a lot of sun block. Another option is to do a night safari when the temperature is lower and the dusk views are impressive.

5. Camp in the White Desert
If the desert safari time is not enough for you, why not do camping in the desert too? You can camp in the White Desert (and other deserts) for a desired number of nights. The White Desert is a bit out of the way, and it is different from the other deserts that are closer to the tourist trail, so only the most adventurous tour companies might offer this. But, the White Desert is a truly spectacular place worth seeing as it is full of limestone sculptures and beautiful sceneries.
