CNN recommends Egypt among best 20 destinations not to be missed
From pilots to travel photographers, train aficionados to tour guides, these world-wandering experts have seen the world. Here they share their favorite destinations, and why they think they shouldn’t be missed.
Visit Egypt without the crowds
“I’d highly recommend going to Egypt now,” says Geoffrey Kent, founder of Abercrombie & Kent.
“I traveled there at the end of 2015 and it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see these sites with few crowds. For instance, at Abu Simbel, I was in Ramses temple and had it all to myself for a few minutes.
“As I was climbing up the narrow staircase into the center of Cheops Pyramid, there were only a few people that I had to sidestep. It’s a very different experience doing that when the crowds (and heat) are at full force,” says Kent.
Just another reminder not to miss the experience of a live time – namely to spend time alone – even if it is only for a few minutes – with a pharaoh!
