I' m Mina Samy. I'm a student in 1 A at El-Hag hadad secondary school. I love Egypt very much, so I decided to help it to regain tourism. In this project, I will talk about HOTELS IN EGYPT.


Hotels in Egypt


Egypt is the land of the Nile, the Pharaohs, and history. For over 5,000 years, the land has provided its people with food, shelter, and the ability to form perhaps the world’s oldest civilization, complete with gods, temples, and religion. This civilization, like all ancient cultures, flourished along a majestic source of water: the Nile River. All along this river towns were built, along with temples for worship, and burial structures. Today, millennia later, many of these temples and burial structures still stand, and you can have a chance to come to Egypt and see this great wonders. But Egypt doesn’t only offer centuries old history! It also offers incredible natural wonders, such as the vivid colors of the Red Sea marine life, the incredible view of the stars from the peaceful desert, and the wonderful images of desert oases so picturesque, you’ll think you’re hallucinating!

All of these things conjure images of history and old age, which may have you believing that your accommodation will be as old as some of the pyramids. That’s where you’re wrong! Most hotels in Egypt are as modern as they come. Hotels in Egypt have all the basic facilities you would imagine, including laundry facilities, room service, wake up calls, etc. As time goes on, more modern luxuries are also added to these hotels, such as wireless internet and satellite television. As there are a lot of hotels, I will talk about some of them.
