There are many great things to do in Egypt but there is only one that’ll keep a place in your heart and soul forever. A Nile Cruise on a Dahabiya (typical Egyptian sailboat) is a remarkable experience that shows another side of Egypt far away from the dusty pyramids and crowded Cairo.
Most Nile Cruises are 3-5 days long and go from Luxor to Aswan or the other way around. The Dahabiya is perfect for all tourists, expats or locals who wish to experience Egypt at a leisurely pace. It allows you to enjoy the fresh river breeze, drink in beautiful landscapes and marvel at temples of the riverbanks.
I did a 6 day cruise together with some friends from Luxor to Aswan beginning of 2015. During our trip I saw, sensed and experience beautiful moments and would like to share my favorite scenery and impressions of our Nile Cruise.
