Egypt, or the land of the Pharaohs, is most known for its pyramids at Giza and ancient remains of the old Egyptian civilization. Egypt is the only country in Africa which is also part of the Middle East. The pyramids aren’t the only sights because there are also lots of Islamic and Coptic places of interest. In the north Egypt borders the Mediterranean Sea and in the east the Red Sea where there are many tourist resorts. The huge Sanai makes up the eastern part bordering Israel, deep deserts in the west bordering Libya and in the south, is Sudan. Most places of interested are located around Cairo, Luxor, and Abu Simbel.
