Have you experienced VELTRA's online tour yet?
We also offer several types of online tours in Egypt.
One of them is an Egyptian home visit and a live tour of the Pyramids of Giza!
As you can see in the picture, I visited the pyramid ... but actually this is the view from the roof of the guide's house!
The staff is a cameraman and we are doing a live tour with two people on a three-legged race.
To be honest, I was wondering, "Is online tour interesting?" (Laughs), but it's surprisingly interesting! I can recommend this with confidence! I can say that.
We are also preparing a course to learn hieroglyphs and a new tour ♪
We look forward to your participation!
As many of you may know because it was covered in Japanese news, the mummy was transferred from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to the Egyptian Civilization Museum in Fustat on April 3rd.
This time, 18 pharaohs and 4 queen mummies were transferred.
A large parade was held and was broadcast on television in Egypt.
Currently, 20 of the 22 mummies transferred are on display at the Egyptian Civilization Museum.
(The remaining two are "in preparation", but they may have been damaged during the transfer ... ??)
In front of the museum entrance, there are pillars that introduce the mummified pharaohs.
Egypt has a strong image of a desert, but surprisingly there are also plants.
The flame tree is in full bloom right now.
You can see a lot on the well-maintained highways, residential areas, and parks.
Egyptians are not very interested in trees and flowers and do not know their names at all.
All trees are "trees", all flowers are "flowers", lol
Japanese customers often ask for the names of trees and flowers, so there is also our Egyptian Japanese guide who researched and learned hard.
Vaccination has begun in Japan, but vaccination is also underway in Egypt.
The application method is easy.
All you have to do is register your ID number (passport for foreigners) and address on the designated website.
As you can see in the picture, you can choose to display in English, so you don't have to speak Arabic.
After registering, you will receive a registration number in a short message.
As in Japan, the priority was given to medical staff, the elderly, and people with underlying illnesses, but for some reason I didn't hit any of them, so my turn came early and the first vaccination was given in mid-May. I've been doing it!
Egypt is conservative for food, but the number of restaurants offering sushi has increased dramatically in the last year or two.
However, while many sushi is far from Japanese sushi, MORI SUSHI offers stable and delicious sushi. Of course, it is inferior to Japanese sushi, but I am still very satisfied with the desire for Japanese food. The fried sushi is also hot and surprisingly delicious, but be careful as it is too voluminous. The large malls almost always contain MORI SUSHI, which is popular with Egyptians.
When it comes to Egypt, ancient ruins such as pyramids are popular with Japanese people, but in fact, the Red Sea beach resort, which boasts the highest transparency in the world, is also famous, and people who stay mainly from Europe and Russia on long vacations throughout the year. Will visit a lot.
The beach resort is also popular with Egyptians, and the other day our Japanese staff went on vacation with their families.
From the pier on the hotel's private beach, you can see many colorful fish with the naked eye. The food was delicious and it seemed to be very relaxing and very satisfying.
A new restaurant overlooking the 9 pyramids has opened!
Speaking of the Giza Pyramid, the three major pyramids of Khufu, Kuffler, and Menkaurer are famous, but in fact, there are three "satellite pyramids" built alongside the Khufu pyramid and the Menkaurer pyramid, which are combined with the three major pyramids. There is a special place where you can see a total of 9 pyramids.
A restaurant has opened at that superb view point!
Its name is "9 Pyramids Lounge".
There are two types, a table seat and a Bedouin style tatami room. It's completely outdoors, so it can be a bit harsh during midsummer days, but you can enjoy your meal while gazing at the nine pyramids!
Although it is located in the desert, it also has a clean toilet.
Alcohol will also be available after January 2021.

Baron Palace in Cairo has been open to the public for the first time since June 30!
Oriental architecture reminiscent of India or Angkor Wat even though it is Egypt! ?
The Heliopolis area, where the Baron Palace is located, was itself developed by the Belgian businessman Edward Enpain, and was built as his own residence.
At that time, it seemed to be the design because oriental architecture was popular in Europe under the influence of the Paris Expo.
Admission Fee 100 adult Egyptian pounds, £50 extra on rooftop open from 9am to 6pm.
It is close to Cairo Airport and recommended for sightseeing during transit times!
August is hot, and sometimes school is closed, so many Egyptians go to sea resorts. In some places, such as Ein Sohona, a Red Sea resort near the capital, Cairo, is full of hotels and reservations cannot be made. The capacity of each hotel is limited due to infection control. If you can't go to the sea, go to a shopping mall in search of coolness. The photo shows lunch at Morizushi in the mall.
