    The Pyramids

    Obviously they are the most well known and most popular sight in Egypt.

    I'm wondering, for those of you who have been there, do you think it was worth it going to see them? Are they really as amazing as you thought before going?

    Re: The Pyramids

    I've never been there to be honest, but my friend has (he has family there) he thinks the pyramids aren't such a big thing. All the surrounding area is full of people selling stuff and a lot tourists, the whole area is ver well illuminated at night, btw I think it would be interesting to go see that place at night, but I guess it'd still be kinda dangerous. Would be great to take some pics of that tho.

    This is kind of the idea that I have too. Everyone is expecting it to be a life changing thing but then they see it and it's great but not as good as expected.

    I wouldn't mind going but I'm a bit afraid of being disappointed, kind of the reason why I made this thread.

    I guess my feelings on it are, if you have the opportunity and the proximity to see them, why not? I've always wanted to go to Egypt, I was supposed to go years ago but that trip didn't happen. I don't expect to have some monumental revelation if I went there, but to see something that is such a huge part of history, not in a book or on TV but with my own eyes...I don't know, it seems worth it to me.

    Well it isn't like you're going to get right up on them. Protected places and all that. That said the point of seeing the pyramids and the stuff in D.C. and all the other tourists attractions isn't to be blown away. It's to see something from television and the movies in real life with your own eyes.

    I visited Egypt when I was seven or eight years old. Back then they appeared to be massive, colossal things that kept me in awe for weeks! I can't tell whether I'd feel the same way now. My parents and family had loved them. It may disappoint some while enchanting others, it all depends on what you consider "worthy". The place in itself, from what I remember, isn't scenic at all, just dry yellow stretches of barrenness. But to see those gigantic, almost prehistoric monuments gazing down at you does put you down in place. It's really unfathomable how they were built to that stature at a time when no machines existed. Many of them are crumbling down though, almost all are eroded at the edges. It makes you feel, "strange" to be amidst the pyramids, I don't know how else to put it. :P

    I have been to Egypt twice, once to Cairo and once to Alexandria. Personally I wasn't to excited about the pyramids. It is so commercialized and they are right off of the road to get there so they didn't seem like a big deal for me. If I were to go again I would travel to Luxor since that seems to be the most breathtaking area of artifacts.

    I have not seen Egypt but I want to see it one day. The only thing I want to see is the pyramid. I saw it in different movies and I'm really fascinated. It's included to the lists of world wonders. I saw some of it and I'm planning to complete the lists.

    My cousin went to Egypt for a second time. She said she didn't find the pyramids as mesmerizing as we thought they were when we went there the first time as kids. I guess with age some of our wonder and amazement disappears. Back then it felt colossally magnificent! But then again that was many years back, I don't think it was this commercial then.

    The Pyramids are very dope and they always do appeal with the kind of traveling we experience basically, it does grow with a certain approach and tourists love going through it which is one fine activity to me. In the same way for getting the correct idea of how it has to be working bus tour to niagara falls from NJ would bring a very reasonable approach for us in the correct method that works.

    Egypt is famous for its ancient monuments Pyramids and in geometry, a pyramid is a polyhedron formed by connecting a polygonal base and a point, called the apex. Each base edge and apex form a triangle, called a lateral face. It is a conic solid with polygonal base.
