Things To Know When Visiting Egypt

Egypt, the beautiful country of pharaohs and ancient mystery, is a place that most of us dream of going to after watching ‘Mummy’. Egypt is on top of the bucket list for a lot of people, and the country rakes in foreign currency due to their great tourism destinations. But there are essentials that you need to know when you are visiting a foreign country, and then there are the essentials sites that should be on your list when visiting Egypt. So here are the top ideas to have in your head when going to Egypt.Visiting the Great Pyramid of Giza

The pinnacle of visiting Egypt is going to see Giza and the three pyramids. The most common known fact about going to the pyramids is that its beauty is showcased during sunset and sunrise. So try to grab your camera and run off to the pyramids during these times to get some snapshots to last a lifetime. Also, the great pyramid of Giza is one of the only remaining few world wonders, so you’d better check it out before it starts crumbling as well (it has held strong for around 4600 years already anyway). Camel riding and horse riding is available on site, but if you love animals then it is suggested not to go for those. You can get to the top of the hill adjacent to the pyramid to get the view of the three pyramids aligned as well. Climbing the hill can be quite a workout due to the sand.

The great Sphinx

The great Sphinx of Giza is located right in front of the Khafre pyramid and on the west bank of the Nile river. The original Egyptian name of the great sphinx (Abu al-Haul) translates to ‘the terrifying one’ (or ‘the father of dread’ in literal translation). You can take lots of pictures here as well for your scrapbooks and online albums. You do not need to pay an admission fee for the sphinx as it is included with the admissions to the Giza pyramid site. A fun fact: the face of the sphinx is thought to be made in likeness of that of the Pharaoh Khafra.

Rent yacht for Nile viewing

You can also go on a cruise on the great Nile river (amazing and gorgeous views guaranteed) with the crowds, or you can rent yacht Dubai separately if you have the cash. The Nile River runs for a long range, so you can only travel the part that runs through Egypt. The kingdom of Egypt was built around the delta of the Nile and has been dependent on its fresh waters for the existence of its people.

Egypt has a lot of recreational activities and things to see, so make a separate bucket list for Egypt as well. If you are going alone, then make sure that you have properly packed everything you need, and also have your emergency contacts in place as well.

Things To Do To The House Your Leave Behind

Moving houses is something that brings mixed emotions to one’s heart. While some people love the adventure and newness of moving, some others despise it. For these people it is change in their comfort zone, which can be terrifying in its own way. Many people concentrate a lot on the house that they move into. But not a lot of them would concentrate on the house that they leave behind. A house that is not properly vacated in a nightmare for many parties, including your new tenant and real-estate company. Here are a few things that you should definitely look into at your old house before you vacate.
Disconnect all utility services
First and foremost, one of the most important things that you should be doing is to disconnect all your utility services. This makes your life, the lives of the new occupants of your house and the lives of the relocation companies much easier. There are some people who forget to disconnect their gas supply, water supply and electricity supply. Leaving these connected not only becomes a safety hazard, but will also require you to follow many cumbersome process to get them disconnected after you leave. So before you move out of your house, make a list of utility services that you have subscribed for. A week or so before moving, make arrangements to disconnect these services the day you move out or the following day.
Clean the house
Well, now that you are moving into a new house and starting a new life at a new place, it does not mean that you can leave your old house behind in a condition of neglect. There are many movers in Dubai that have had difficult experiences just because the previous occupant of a house did not take the time to clean up their house before they vacated. Therefore, to make for a comfortable moving experience, make sure that you clean your house from top to bottom before moving. Keep in mind that no new occupant would like to move into a house that is dirty and unkempt. Therefore start the process of cleaning a week or so before your move.
Look at the garage
Many of us forget to look at the garage before moving out. Garages, in some houses, serve as second storage spaces. Therefore, there might be quite a bit of valuable or sentimental bric-a-brac that your new occupant might not want to deal with. It can also contain those chemicals that you bought to kill the weeds or some parts of your gun collection. Make sure that you leave off all traces of such material from your garage and house before you vacate it.
