Top good and bad things about Egypt


Good Egypt

Have you ever heard about Egypt?

Have you Ever visited it?

Well, today lets talk about it and lets gather what is good and what is bad there.Lets start with the GOOD things i noticed there:

1- Egypt is in the middle east having the shores on both the Mediterranean sea and the Red sea. It also has the long river "the Nile" which passes through most of its cities. This is not a geographical lesson but this gives Egypt wonderful seen and amazing weather too.

2- At the Red sea, one can enjoy diving or can rent a glassy bottom boat to enjoy the scene of the sea bottom with different types of creatures and fishes.

3- At Giza, Luxor and Aswan you can take an exciting tour through the ancient Egyptian development by visiting the great PYRAMIDS, some famous temples and museums.

4- There are also other exciting places to visit there specially at night as Khan-El-Khalili where you can buy memorizing gifts.

5- Most of people there are helpful with a smile on their faces. They also have high sense of humor.

6- Egyptian food is delicious, you have to try "molokhya", "mahshi", "shish kabab" and some others I could not memorize.

Bad Egypt

Now lets go through the BAD things I noticed:

1- crowded and random traffic, even the ambulance can not pass through.

2- Poverty is nearly everywhere specially when tourists go a little bit away from their guide, they are surrounded with poor children asking for tips!!

3- Some people exploits tourists specially the cap drivers (they call it "taxi") and ask more money than deserved.

4- Trashes are thrown on streets even if there is a trash basket near it!!

Another thing is that my visit was not so long and I could not spend enough time at each place or to visit more places there but in general it was an interesting vacation.

I'm an Egyptian and I might just be 12 but, I think that during the past few years egypt has been falling apart. But its not the people's faults it's the government's fault and I hope egypt ends up with a better future

Mona - you should be proud to be Egyptian. The problem is the government not the people. I love the sounds, smells and love walking around the place. Always feel safe and everybody smiles.

Mona on June 13, 2013:

Adam on May 26, 2013:

Im Egyptain and Egypt is like the best place ever! The problems come from the crazy presidents that do bad things to the country and want to be president until they die.

Annie Messeri from Spain on March 28, 2013:

Egypt is an amazing place. Lots of history and things to see. Cairo is like an other large mega city in the world - crowded, polluted and poor people. I believe they are found in Washington D.C. as well

I am an egyptian, and lived in egypt for many years. The people are really nice and sweet. The peoplem comes with the screwed president that thinks that a democratic country such as egypt should b ruled By on ruler for over 30 years. And he wants his son to continue after him. One word to describe the current rulling party, corrupted. I wish the situation that happened in Tunisia, happens in egypt. Egypt has always been the center of strength to the arab world through out hitory, and I really hope things turn around in that beautiful country.
