If you are looking for a travel destination that combines stunning natural beauty, ancient history and authentic culture, then Siwa is the place for you. Siwa is an oasis in the Western Desert of Egypt, about 50 km from the Libyan border. It is one of the most isolated and unique places in Egypt, with its own language, customs and traditions. Siwa is also a paradise for adventure seekers, who can enjoy activities such as sandboarding, camel riding, hot springs and desert safaris.

Here are some of the reasons why you should visit Siwa:

  • Siwa is a treasure trove of ancient monuments and mysteries, such as the Shali Fortress, a mud-brick citadel that dominates the town; the Temple of the Oracle of Amun, where Alexander the Great consulted the god; the Mountain of the Dead, a necropolis with rock-cut tombs; and the Cleopatra’s Pool, a natural spring where the legendary queen allegedly bathed.
  • Siwa is a haven of peace and tranquility in the midst of the desert, where you can relax and rejuvenate in one of the many palm-fringed salt lakes, such as Lake Siwa or Fatnis Island.
