A visit to the Pyramids is like a long pending pilgrimage to your school-days memories when numerous text books on history of the world was full of pictures and periods spent by the Pharaoh Kings and Queens of ancient Egypt. Rightfully their slogan to woo more tourists says “Egypt- where it all began”, and it actually delivers that experience of being at the beginning of something fundamental, something that shaped civilisations and rituals, something that invoked the mysteries around death and afterlife.
We had been feeling selfish for a while not to write about this experience with you. We were exposed to the mean version of us which just wanted to keep guarding the secret of Egypt all by ourselves. Eventually we gave up because of the power of a natural beauty which is unforeseen, unequalled and untouched, all of which proved to be stronger than our selfishness of concealing it.
Not many times this happens that the morning sunshine will gently descend on your eyes to wake you up in the brand new sunny day and you will be greeted with “a very good morning” by the Great Pyramids of Egypt. Reads like exaggeration but happens every day to those smart travellers to Egypt who decide to stay in the arms of the magical monuments of the ancient world. Put differently, if you are visiting Egypt for business, stay in Cairo. But if your sole mission is to see for yourself the Pyramids, then without an iota of doubt you need to set up your den at the Le Meridien Pyramids Hotel & Spa. Just a 5 minute drive away from the site of the Wonder of this World – this hotel gave Team OneTimeFashionista the perfect week long launchpad to explore at our own convenience and comfort – the Great Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara, Dahshur, Memphis, a day out in Cairo and also the remote White Deserts in the Bahariya Oasis.
