Published

on

Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Khaled Al-Anani announced that the entrance ticket to the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) for Egyptians will be EGP30 and the inclusive one will be for EGP60.

According to the minister, the museum will accommodate various needs for tourists so that they get to spend the entire day at the museum instead of just a few hours.

The museum will include theaters, cinemas, restaurants and entertainment sites, and is therefore considered to be an integrated cultural complex.

The GEM will introduce both the Egyptians and foreigners to the rich history of the Egyptian civilization, in addition to offering educational seminars on Ancient Egypt.

These remarks from Anani came on Sunday after the Culture, Media and Antiquities Committee of the House of Representatives approved the Prime Minister’s decree for a draft law that proposes the recognition of the GEM institutional structure.

This decree allows foreign experts to work in the administration of the museum, the minister further explained that there is already a Japanese grant for the presence of Japanese experts in the department of Marketing and other fields except for the antiquities.

Your Ultimate Honeymoon Guide to The Maldives PT I

Published

on

By

If Maldives is your honeymoon destination then congrats for you have picked one of the best and most dreamy places in the world! The Maldives have everything a couple look for in a honeymoon, from its white-sand beaches to the blue skies and mesmerizing turquoise waters.

But where do you even begin planning such a trip? Where to stay and where to go? Well, this is what this guide was made for and that is to guide you through everything you need to know for the perfect honeymoon.

Visa

Egyptians don’t need a visa for Maldives! Yes, you heard that right. You can obtain your visa on arrival for a stay up to 30 days, which can also be extended. Applicants must show evidence of return transportation and a hotel accommodation plus a sufficient amount of money.

When to travel

The Maldives is sunny all year round but the best time to visit is between November and April. The high season is between December and March and the monsoon runs from May to October. Stick to the dry season because during rainy days, there won’t be much activities to do, so it’s certainly worth the higher price.

Flight

Male International Airport is the Maldives‘ main international airport. It is located on Hulhule Island in the North Male Atoll, near the capital island Male.

The flight ticket is a bit pricey but keep in mind the heavenly destination that you’re heading for, prices of tickets during the season might start at 30K.

Getting to your resort

Transfers from the airport to your resort island are either by a domestic flight, a seaplane or a boat which are all pretty cool. It depends mainly on the distance, make sure to resolve this before traveling because if your destination requires a seaplane, they only operate in daylight hours. So if you arrive after sunset, you will have to spend the night in Male.

Don’t panic though and remember that the seaplane trip is an experience itself as you get to enjoy stunning views, so make sure you get a window seat!

Activities

The Maldives are a tropical heaven and are ideal for the couple looking to enjoy quality and alone time by the beach. There are lots of water sports that you can enjoy, the underwater life there is truly fascinating and thus is known to be a driver’s dream come true.

Most resorts will have quite the busy entertainment program for you but there are no sightseeing included, so if you’re not looking forward to staying all day by the beach and spending your days snorkeling and diving, then you should probably rethink having the Maldives as your honeymoon destination.
