Have you been planning to visit Egypt? Planning for a trip is sometimes arduous especially if you are not sure which places to visit, the things which interest you and the activities you can do while in the area. Planning is a vital element in the success of any trip. If you don’t know what places to visit in Egypt then how about booking cheap flights to Minya and experience what this city has to offer.
This is about 245 kilometers from the city of Cairo along the western bank of the Nile River. The city offers a rich history and culture which traces back to Ancient Egypt. It is also in the city where the Codex Tchacos was discovered. This is a Coptic papyrus which contains early Christian Gnostic texts dating back to the 300 AD. The locals most commonly refer Minya as the Bride of Upper Egypt because of its geographic location being in the midst of Egypt linking both north and south. Minya also offers an important part in both Islamic and Modern History as well.
Book cheap flights to Minya and see the two of the most frequently visited attractions in the city which are the Beni Hassan and the Fraser Tombs. You will find wonderful tombs in Beni Hassan situated about an hour drive from the south part of Minya. The tombs here are among the best in Egypt. This is an interesting site which is truly worthy of a tourist visit. There are also many interesting activities you can do here aside from visiting the tombs. This is also a good site to experience hunting and fishing. Bird watching is also a good activity you can do here. You will also find well preserved arts in the area. The Fraser Tombs are also interesting to visit which allows you to learn about ancient Egypt. You will find interesting scenes carved inside the tombs.
Most tourists come in flock. If you want to save money avoid the high season and settle for the months where there is no influx of tourists. This way you will gain better travel deals, cheaper hotel rates or even cheaper tour guide fees.
There are many hotels in Minya. Some of these hotels include the Siva Nefertiti Hotel, King Akhenaton Hotel and Hotel Cleopatra. The Siva Nefertiti Hotel has friendly staff who are always ready to assist their guests. This is probably the best hotel you can find in the city. The King Akhenaton Hotel is clean with an amazing location near the River Nile. Other accommodations include the Horus Resort Menia which is a good Bed and Breakfast hotel.
