5 Things That Egypt Is Famous For Worldwide

What 5 things have made a name for Egypt internationally?

1. The Pyramids

The first thing that comes to mind when we think of Egypt are the pyramids. One of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the pyramids are a famous destination for people from all over the world, which are also accessible and very easy to get to. When you do visit the pyramids, make sure you ride the horses down Nazlet El-Semman and you should definitely dedicate some time to watching the sunset with a cup of tea in hand.

2. Tutankhamun

An Ancient Egyptian pharaoh that has gained worldwide recognition since the discovery of his intact tomb in 1992. The story behind his death has been the subject of considerable debate, and you can still visit Tutankhamun’s mummy, which still rests in his tomb in the Valley of the Kings.

3. Foul

The most popular Egyptian meal anywhere in the world is foul because the dish is highly consumed in Egypt. Egyptian people of all classes eat foul regularly, which is a winning factor in competition with other specialized breakfast spots. There are so many ways you can eat foul in Egypt, but my personal favorite is Arabiata’s foul.

4. Bibliotheca Alexandrina

One of the biggest libraries in Africa and the world, especially after it was renovated and relocated with the help of the UNESCO in an attempt to rebuild the ancient library. Bibliotheca Alexandrina holds around 2 million books and is considered the fourth largest francophone library in the world, with 7 specialized libraries, 4 museums and 15 exhibitions, aside from the Planetarium Science Center.

5. Mohamad Salah

The most famous international Arab football player is Mohamad Salah. His fame was able to re emphasize Egypt on the world map, especially after his unique performances and impressive games with Liverpool. Currently one of the best players in the world and the best player in Africa, Mo Salah has managed to win over many titles, including ‘Pride of the Arabs’.
