The temple is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved in all of Ancient Egypt, and the stunningly detailed carvings and hieroglyphics on display are truly awe-inspiring.

The buffet-style restaurant we visited was called The Crocodile, and while the food was decent, it wasn’t anything to write home about. However, the restaurant staff were friendly and welcoming, which certainly made for a nice atmosphere while we recharged our batteries. One thing to note is that you will have to pay for your drinks separately, so it’s a good idea to bring some extra cash with you. Overall, while the food may not have been the most amazing aspect of the trip, it was certainly a welcome break in between all the sightseeing, and gave us a chance to rest our feet and chat about the amazing things we’d seen so far.
