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!

January and February are the coldest months of the year in Morocco, but the temperature has risen sharply since late January this year, and here in Ouarzazate, the days reminiscent of spring weather continue. ..
There, almond flowers, which are very similar to Japanese cherry blossoms, began to bloom, so I went to the World Heritage Site Ait Ben Haddou for cherry blossom viewing.
Ait Ben Haddou is usually very crowded with foreign tourists as the almonds bloom, but no foreign tourists were seen at all. Most of the souvenir shops were closed, and several cafes and restaurants were open, but there were few customers. It was quiet and a little lonely.

Dubai has many of the best in the world, such as "the tallest building in the world" and "the largest fountain in the world".
Gold Souk also has "the best in the world". What a ring!
You can see how big it is compared to the next mannequin, but it's huge.
By the way, the costume worn by the next mannequin is also made of gold.
Even if you don't actually shop, it's fun to walk around the showcase with gold costumes and heavy necklaces with flashy designs that you rarely see in Japan!

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.
