With more than 5,000 years of history, few destinations are as culturally rich as Egypt. You can see the fabled monuments of one of the world's oldest civilizations firsthand, from the Great Pyramids of Giza to the Valley of the Kings. (Here is a handy refresher on millennia of history if you need it.) But Egypt is more than its ancient history-it's also a destination with a fascinating and vibrant cultural life today. It's easy to get lost among the towers of spices and fragrant food stalls in the bustling bazaars while a visit to one of Cairo's coffee shops provides a glimpse of daily life for many Egyptians. Or, you can lounge on the colorful cushions of a traditional Egyptian sailboat-called a felucca-as you float down the Nile, following the route of ancient pharaohs.
