Yes, you guessed it right! We will unfold the best photography spots in Egypt. Charge yourself and your camera to set your social media handle on fire.
1 . The Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx; Photography of the Wonder of the World
Does this name need extra mention? But we cannot give away the first rank to others either. You certainly cannot resist yourself from clicking pictures on your visit to the most beautiful wonder of the world. And the best part about this is that you do not need to pay anything extra for using your camera or phone. But they charge a fee for using your tripods.
Tip: Look for a good sunrise or sunset picture
2. Khan El Khalili Bazaar; photography of a messy beautiful place
If you think you are something more than an amateur, then this place is for you. Head to the oldest marketplace of Egypt and you will find beauty amidst the crowd and chattering of locals. You can complete your shopping too, while you fill your camera storage with real portrait candids. By now, you might have guessed, there are no fees for photography here.
Tip: Head to the stalls selling Arabian lanterns and other Egyptian souvenirs for getting some dashing pictures.
3. Citadel of Saladin
Welcome to one of the lesser known photography spots right in the heart of Cairo, the Citadel of Saladin. The citadel was constructed in the 12th century BC and carries a strong aroma of history in each layer of concrete. You do not need to pay any extra bucks to use your camera or phone. The entry fee is all that you need.
Tip: Head to the top of the Citadel to take a picture of the whole city in a single snap. Also, visit the Mosque of Muhammad Ali and the quality of pictures that you get will certainly impress you.
4. The Egyptian Museum; photography of pages of history
Yes, you heard that right, travel junkie! The Egyptian Museum in Cairo is one of the most popular photography hotspots throughout your trip. The antique collection of specimens in the museum will give you bundles of good photos in a few hours. The masks and sarcophagi of King Tutankhamun are the main attractions here. You have to pay an extra 30 EGP for buying a photo pass to the museum.
Tip: Open your eyes wide, for appropriate photo shoot sites. The entrance and the arched roof goes no less in being captured.
5. The Karnak Temple
It is not fair to leave behind the most intricately designed architectural gems of Egypt. The Karnak Temple is an important page of Egyptian history that was constructed around 2055 BC. For excellent photos, head to the temple early in the morning, at around 6:00 a.m. The gentle rays of the sun will reflect a slight tone of pink and orange color on the pillars. There is no extra cost for free hand photography but for using tripods, there are extra charges.
Tip: After the sun sets, you can get some excellent portraits amidst the ancient pillars.
