Splendid mosques, glorious avenues, 19th-century palaces and the pyramids of Giza, awaits you in Cairo. A city inhabited by more than 22 million people may feel overwhelming, but the residents make up for it with their charm and humour. Cairo has centuries of character and it reflects in every corner of the city. Egyptians call it 'Umm ad-Dunya', the Mother of the World, and this city loves exactly like a mother – unconditionally. The dusty streets and polluted air may be underwhelming but the vibe of this city makes up for almost all its drawbacks. Where else can you see an ancient wonder of the world, still standing tall and proud, but in Cairo?

How to reach : Take a Bus from Cairo or a direct flight(I would recommend during the summers) which takes around an hr to reach SharmEl-Sheikh. Take a Taxi to Dahab or pre book the Cab/taxi if you are flying in odd hours like I booked in advance with the stay as we where to reach at 1 am(Yes, 1 am Sinai) at our stay at Dahab. The road from Sharm to Dahab is around an 1 and half also it may vary depending on the check point traffic and the land slide(if any).It is a wonderful and safe experience to see the beautiful mountain trail and star lit sky.

From Aqaba, we again set off on an amazing jeep tour into the Wadi Rum desert. And as we reached Petra, we knew it was the perfect place for a history-lover like me. As a young boy, I often imitated the adventures of Indiana Jones and now I was breathing amongst the walls that had once stood for the Last Crusade! So without further adieu, we delved our curious and excited foot steps into the carved pink sandstone and soon made our grand entrance, through the winding canyon of Siq, finally to the legendary Al Khazneh (The Treasury). Walking past the stone-resurrected tombs and narrow gorges amidst the rocks that have withheld a metamorphosis with the passage of time. And finally we got lucky for our first glimpse!Marked in every corner by its history of Bedouin culture, yet it reeks of the once effluent Pharaoh's lavish interests. So as we headed out, content with ourselves of the historical essence our trip had brought on, we realised it was just impossible to stay in Petra for just a day. To get the feel of the ruins that shaped history, we decided we'll stay on and explore more. So in the coming days came the Roman Theater and the Royal Tombs and the magnificent show that we are glad we didn't miss- Petra by Night. And with the visit to the Mountain of Aaron, our trip came to an end.

Once we reached our hotel cum hostel cum backpackers delight to our surprise the city was awake,Dahab is a wonderful place on the mountain foot with Red Sea embracing the coast. Best part you can hear the Sea waves all light up with the moonlight and Sky with stars shining enough to make you realize what you Miss in Cities.Dahab is famous for it's amazing diving which you can book in advance or can book on the spot. It has Beer/alcohol and good food to offer from around the world. The City center is a shopping hub if you can bargain you won't regret.The small artistic restaurant run by locals and foreigners are a must try. There is a small shopping mall for all the daily necessity(You will need it trust me..especially the water and toiletries). Once you are done with diving you can enroll for the Dinner in the desert which we Miss unfortunately.Places to visit : City center,Blue hole,Red Sea and Dessert.Caution : As Dahab is on the seashore the water is way to salty so you may need and extra bottle of water for rinsing yourself after bath.
