Every so often, Egyptians become forgetful of the beauty of Egypt due to the socio-economic unrest that gets people caught up in a loop of continuous struggles to secure their basic needs. Amid continuous attempts to remember the beauty of Egypt, an abundance of Youtube channels contribute to remind people once again of the allurement of the North African country.
Having navigated YouTube and other social media platforms in search of people–both foreigners and Egyptians– who highlight their visits and adventures in Egypt, it is easy to realize that there is more to this country than the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx.
American backpacker and videographer Jordan Taylor has recently visited Egypt and uploaded on her YouTube channel “Travellight” some videos from her trip. She had visited multiple tourist attractions including Siwa Oasis, Dahab, and Aswan. In 2014, Taylor took it upon herself to pursue her passion for traveling. Her solo visit to Egypt included a lot of places and adventures.
You can follow her channel “Travellight” to see more videos on her visit to Egypt. Below, you can watch Taylor’s video of Siwa Oasis.

Similarly, there are some Instagram pages that allow you to discover Egypt.

“Cairo on Foot” offers a different experience around Cairo streets. Cairo on Foot’s founder Sara Zaki previously told Egyptian Streets, “I started going around by myself to places we’ve never seen, I’d stop in the middle of an errand if I spot something I want to capture in the street and capture it, and I would walk more and interact with everything on the street.”
