Egypt, also known as the Arab Republic of Egypt, is famous for being one of the most populous countries in Africa. This United Kingdom colony gained independence on the 28th of February 1922 and later declared a republic in 18th June, 1953. With an estimated population of about 83.7 million, Egypt sits on one million square kilometers of land with Cairo as the capital city. Many egyptEgyptians speak Egyptian Arabic as a national language but there are minority dialects as well. The legislature is made of a parliament, an Upper House, Shura Council, Lower House and a House of Representatives. Geographically, Egypt is bordered by Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Gaza strip and Israel to the northeast, Sudan to the south, Libya to the west and the Red Sea to the east. Egyptians are generally friendly people and are passionate with whatever they do.
Luxor, a museum in Egypt, is known as the largest open-air museum in the world. The 365 days calendar was actually invented by Egyptian ancestors. Also, glass and faience were Egyptian inventions that are now being used all over the world. The pyramids of Egypt are the last remaining wonders of the world. It is also interesting to note that ancient Egyptians played a game that was very similar to today’s bowling.
The president, Dr. Mohamed Morsy visited India and signed major deals from 18th march 2013 to 20th march 2013. This was attributed to the increased bilateral trade between the two countries within the past few years. Important MoUs were signed including those related to ICT and cyber security. On the 25th of December 2012, the president also signed into law a new Islamist-drafted constitution meant to end political disorders. On the 5th of February 2012, Egypt defeated India 2-1 in the finals of SDAT-WSF Under-21 Squash World Cup. Personally, I find Egypt to be not only a good tourist destination because of its ancient culture, but also easy to interact and share my culture with its people. I always find the economy open to my business ventures and the social amenities adequately distributed all over this wonderful country. Egypt is also home to many foreign tourists and this is enough proof of its positive reputation all over the world. Thousands of tourists visit this country every year to learn more about the famous pyramids, the ancient culture, traditions, civilization and other great historical events.
