"The Nile is not Just water, It is blood and life" River Nile Tip by Saladinos

River Nile, Cairo: 25 reviews and 42 photos

If you want to discover the Egyptian Identity , start by the Nile.

When You go to Egypt and look at the river nile, dont just pass by and take a photo of it. No, try to close your eyes and imagine the so long history of this water channel.

Egyptians see the Nile as their main source of existence; it is the blood and main vein and in other words it is Life since the pharaohs.

It is the nile that m,ade them learn to be stable and build a community and learn how to unite and share efforts to feed each others using this great nile.

Dont miss renting a boat (felluka) in the nile and feel what i said.

Address: Everywhere.
Directions: Everywhere in Egypt Just close your eyes and follow your heart.

For the felluca, go beside the Grand hayyat hotel and 4 seasons cairo. The boat's maximum rent /1hour is 50 egyptian pounds.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
