CAIRO - 22 November 2017: Are you a newlywed couple and tired of searching for a honeymoon destination? Relax; you are in good hands. Here are our tips for where to spend your honeymoon.

After months of wedding preparations, couples usually spare every effort and penny they have, yet they aspire for their lifetime trip to be as exotic and long as they have ever dreamed. No worries, your first trip together will be exciting and cheap. Just move the needle to Egypt and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime trip.


If you plan for a honeymoon this winter, your ideal destination should be Luxor and Aswan. Nile cruises are the best trip between Luxor and Aswan, and they usually take 4-7 days. When you arrive to Luxor, be sure not to miss the view of paradise on earth from a hot air balloon. We advise you to take a deep breath before you come on board, as the view of Luxor is breathtakingly beautiful from an airship. Your trip will start at 5 a.m., and if you are lucky enough, you will enjoy the scenic sunrise. Then you take a look at the Nile view flowing between the modern city and the west bank necropolis, backed by the temples of Karnak to the east and the spectacular view of tombs on the west bank, which will captivate your mind and heart.

If you are a first-time flyer, be sure to wear heavy clothes, as you will fly 2,000 ft above Luxor for nearly 45-60 minutes with 10-12 persons. Once you are on board, the balloon slowly floats up, and the higher it gets, the more you can see, while also watching other airships take off. There is nothing in the world that compares to the view and grandeur of the Egyptian monuments from an airship.

Try to plan a visit for the temple of Abu Simbel on Fridays and Saturdays to be able to attend a "Sound and Light" show, or the biggest historic show that will take you through the Egyptian civilization and stick to your memory longer than ever. Place the Island of Banana on your list and take as many photos as you can in this lovely picturesque spot.


Are you ready to experience the significance of the southern hospitality in person? If you are bored of the lovely temples and the grandeur of the long-lasting civilization and aspire for some time to watch the Nile view, take a felucca and target the Nubian Village. You will be surprised by the generous treatment you will receive. Just mention that you are newly married and you will be the VIPs.

At the guest houses of the Nubian Village, beware not to let the yummy food and the captivating Nile view distract you. Visit Egypt’s High Dam, the Nubian Museum, the Temple of Edfu, the Roman-styled flood-surviving Temple of Philae, and the Island of Plants.

Tunis Village in Fayoum:

Are you craving for a much more adventurous honeymoon? Pick Tunis Village in Fayoum governorate. At this spot, a countless number of activities are ahead of you. Climbing the mountains could be a good adventurous beginning. Then you can take a break and watch the waterfalls of Wadi El Rayan. Later, take a round in the desert and practice sand boarding. If there is still time, you may consider a safari in Whales Valley, where you can clearly see the spectacular sight thousands of stars in the sky. Do not forget to also spend some time parasailing.

Just do not forget to pack your swimming suit with you. Yes, that is right! It is a desert safari and you will need a swimming suit, although it will not be any ordinary swimming. You will swim in natural springs known for their healing power. Trust our choice; the trip will be different as promised.

There are 226 fresh springs in the oasis, though not all are active and accessible. The springs vary in size and qualities. Some are cold-water springs and others are hot springs. Many hotels in Siwa have fresh water pools built into the architecture of their premises. Since Siwa is the land of sun, you will enjoy getting into the water. As the oasis is filled with highly oxygenated air, you can expect the experience of fresh water to be accentuated. Whether at the hotel or out in a desert, swimming in Siwa is an unforgettable experience, as the pools are set in unique locations. You will feel as though you jumped inside the land of dreams.
