So you finally arrived at sacred pyramids!You hop off the bus and........you want to get back to the bus at once as you step on the dirty ground and feel how camels can stink and how local inhabitants can accost to you.
Everyone is curious to get inside of the pyramid. As I had been worn out by that time, I preferred to stay in the bus, but those who came back told me that I hadn't lost anth special except maybe stuffyness that almost made faint my friend:)
Unique Suggestions: At least you are here! Enjoy a precious piece of history:) I don't think I'd like to get back there if I 'd have an opportunity, but there's no doubt I don't regret a bit, inspite of those CAMELS:D
Tell el-Amarna, site of the ancient Egyptian city Akhenaton, on the Nile River, north of the modern city of Asyût. Akhenaton was built during the reign of Amenhotep IV, better known as Akhenaton, sometime between 1350 and 1334 BC; the city served as the Egyptian capital until Akhenaton's death. The period during which Akhenaton was important is known in Egyptian history as the Amarna period.
In 1887, a peasant at Tell el-Amarna found about 400 tablets inscribed in Akkadian cuneiform. The tablets formed part of the correspondence, later known as the Amarna letters, of Akhenaton and his predecessor, Amenhotep III, with the governors in Palestine and Syria and the kings of Babylonia, Assyria, and Mitanni. These tablets and other archaeological remains serve as valuable sources of information about the Amarna period.

Egyptians, if offered anything, will refuse the first invitation which is customary. Therefore (unless you're dealing with Egyptians used to Western frankness) you should do the same. If the offer is from the heart and not just politeness, it will be repeated. If you're invited into a home, especially in small villages, and have to refuse, the householder will often press for a promise from you to visit in the future, usually for a meal. If you make such a promise, keep it, for having foreign guests is often considered a social coup. If you fail to arrive, your would-be host will be humiliated. To repay invitations, you may host a dinner in a restaurant, a common practice.
Some view the Khan al-Khalili as a tourist trap because of all the shops catering to tourists. But you can find a few cool items in the shops and it's interesting for the atmosphere, not to mention the colourful locals.
