They say it is better to see and experience something once than hear about it a thousand times. So if you’ve always wanted to visit Israel, Jordan, and even Egypt for the history of the bible and to experience new cultures, then these 5 reasons will convince you to book a trip:
Do you have a penchant for history? Jerusalem is among the oldest cities in the world and visiting Israel allows you to experience destinations as old as history itself. There are also several museums in Israel such as the Eretz Israel Museum and The Israel Museum to witness ancient art and archaeological facts. When in Egypt, get the full tour of the Giza Pyramids and take an exciting camel ride around the area. You may also check out Luxor’s Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings, where the tombs of the pharaohs of Egypt are located.
For Spiritual and Religious Travel
Jerusalem is home to religious sites. It is very significant for the Christians as well because of the locations such as the Sea of Galilee (where Jesus Christ walks on the surface), The Garden of Gethsemane (it is the place where Judas betrayed Jesus Christ), and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (This is the site of the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.) These popular locations are shore excursions, so this will be a great experience for those who want to retrace Christ’s footsteps. When in Egypt, it is also nice to visit Mt. Sinai, where God is purported to have appeared to Moses and given him the Ten Commandments) and take a boat tour along the Nile River (the infant Moses was placed in a basket by his sister Miriam, and where he was found by the Pharaoh’s daughter).
Have fun with amazing activities
The Holy Land is not just for religious activities, you can also try fun experiences that will make your trip memorable. Some of the highlights are enjoying a dip in the healing waters of the dead sea, go canyoning in Wadi Mujib, taking photos in the ancient city of Petra, and many more fun experiences that can only be found in this type of tour.
Experience the great food
Aside from the fun experiences, travelers rave about the delicious cuisine when going on a trip to the Holy Land. Visit Shawar Bakery & Patisserie in Jerusalem, which has been running for almost 300 years now, for authentic Baklava. When you’re done with pastries, head to the popular restaurant called Machneyuda, where the menu changes daily due to the chef’s inspirations. When in Jordan, try Mansaf at Naseem Fairmont Hotel. They serve an innovative take on mansaf, where they create shawarma wraps filled with meat and rice. Perfect after a long day of touring.
The cosmopolitan city
After experiencing the historic side, now it’s time to visit the city of Tel Aviv which is well known for its amazing restaurant culture, beaches, and modern institutions. Go to Design Museum Holon, if you’re a fan of architecture and industrial design because they feature historical design, from the 1930s and contemporary design in the 2000s. Next, you may sit back, relax, and go for a swim at Metzitzim beach. This spot is also known for great bars and restaurants so it’s good to enjoy the beach with a good drink in hand. When in Egypt, try dune bashing and sandboarding in Cairo. For music lovers, go to Cairo Jazz Club, and end the tour with good live music with good food.
