Egypt has always invoked a feeling of the exotic, of mystery and even intrigue. Excitement stirs the night with anticipation of tomorrow’s discoveries. The Nile River seems to pass as time does, slowly witnessing the progress of mankind. Gazing upon the grand Nile for the first time washes most people in emotion. Suddenly, one actually feels history. It is a sensation like no other, a feeling of quiet knowledge
Even as the aroma of Egypt’s exotic atmosphere surrounds you, there is comfort. Sleek riverboats ply the Nile River providing five star amenities. More intimate with the water slowly drifting by than an ocean liner; imagine drifting south, as lights from the nearby shore glimmer. Grand resorts are everywhere, and the variety of restaurants is simply amazing. Nothing can surpass sitting at the Mena House having drinks with your love while gazing upon the great Pyramid. Nowhere else on earth may someone have dinner on a slow sailing boat upon the river that spawned civilization while the lights of one of the world’s great cities drift by. Or simply enjoy a candle light dinner with a bottle of Champagne in an intimate atmosphere in the Revolving Restaurant on the 41st, Floor in the Grand Hyatt hotel with a unique panoramic view of The Great City of Cairo.
Egypt has most always been a land of romance. Unfortunately, many visitors become so serious about seeing every monument and museum that they can fit into their short schedules, they forget to enjoy Egypt’s romantic allure. But Cleopatra didn’t forget, although she is only one of many ladies whose charm was made brilliant by the starlit desert nights and the sparkling flow of the Nile.
