Egypt

Best known for its pyramids and rich history, Egypt is a country that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. Ancient Egypt was one of the earliest and longest-lasting civilizations on the planet and its historical charm can still be felt today. The country boasts the Nile River, the longest river in the world, and is home to old tombs, temples, and monuments that have been around for centuries.
