Things You Should Know While Booking Flights to Egypt

It is not very difficult to find flights to Egypt because it has been a tourist destination for centuries. These days it has become a popular destination because traveling in Egypt is cheaper than traveling in European countries. While the options available to tourists are numerous, it may be somewhat difficult to get tickets at cheap rates unless one knows how to spot the right deals.

While booking flights to Egypt, there are several things that you should bear in mind.

The first thing that you should know is the traveling habits of tourists. Usually tourists go to the Abu Simbel temple that was relocated to the banks of Lake Nasser when the High Dam was constructed. People are drawn to these temples because of the sheer size of the statues outside the temples. Actually it is said that Ramses II constructed these structures to inspire fear in the hearts of the Nubians after defeating them in a battle. Apart from the grandiosity of the structures, visitors come to see the unique placement of the statues inside the temples that ensure that sunlight reached the statues twice every year.

Tourists also flock to the Necropolis complex between the months of October and May. During this period, the weather is ideal for people who wish to lose themselves in the glory of the grand pyramids. Built 4,600 years ago, the Great Pyramid of Giza remains one of the most massive structures constructed by humans. For 4,000 years it was the tallest man-made building in the world. The experience of standing in front of a structure that is 450 feet tall and has a base of 52,600 square meters is unforgettable. This structure was one of the seven wonders of ancient world. But adjacent to this colossal monument is another pyramid called Pyramid of Khafre. It is almost as tall as Great Pyramid of Khufu. The Sphinx also sits in this complex that is dotted with other smaller pyramids. Now you know why so many people fly into Egypt in winter and spring!

Apart from the tourists who come to see the historical sites, you must also remember that the prices of flight to Egypt are also affected by the increase in the number of travelers during the months of Ramadan. Since this month is sacred for Muslims, more people fly in or out of the country in this month.
