Far away from the chaos of the city, near the western borders of Egypt, lies Siwa Oasis. It’s isolated from almost everything and that gives it its uniqueness. Not Only that makes it unique, but also you will get fascinated by the outstanding beauty that you will see. The vast area of Palm trees which pumps right in front of your eyes in the middle of the desert. All this will make your eyes, heart and soul fall into deep relaxation you never thought you can have it. Simply divine beauty. In this blog we will take you through Siwa and let you explore along with us this hidden treasure of Egypt.
Siwa oasis holds hundreds of natural springs. Both hot and cold springs, also salty and fresh springs and each one of those has its own benefits and its unique pleasure.
It’s a stoned pool that is fed by cold fresh water. So you can refresh your day with a cool bath when you jump in that amazing water. Not only that but also this spring is surrounded by beautiful green palm trees giving you an amazing relaxing view to watch while having your cooling bath. There is a cafeteria over there where you can have a chillaxing drink.
if you really want to chill out and leave all your worries behind you forget about every single problem getting on your nerves, then you must watch the sunset over the Fitnas island. The palm trees surrounding it from every single corner along with the water and the sun with its red, orange and yellow dusky scene when it’s going down into the pure water will wipe away any tiny negative thought in your head. Just complete relaxation along with a cup of Siwan tea that is usually made with lemongrass will just fix your mood. And always remember to carry around your swimming suit in case you decide to go for a swim in that lovely water with that lovely scene. Totally romantic, right, like you have a date with the palm trees and the sun. Highly recommended.
Siwa House Museum
A History nerd? Then this place a must visit for you. This museum is a typical Siwan house that is built with their muddy bricks and beje color that takes decades ago in time. It holds historical silver jewelry, clothes and wedding costumes that give a full vision of their history that actually lives up till now as they stick so much to their traditions, history, and culture. Not to mention the plenty of remains of Amazigh houses scattered in the oasis that will make you go back in time also.
One of the best experiences you will have in Siwa. you don’t actually need to travel to the dead sea to float on the water instead of swimming, you can just go to Siwa. Not to mention their beauty and healing effect. Because of its extreme saltiness, it has a healing power for sinuses, skin and eye infections. Besides, Siwans use salts in building and their tools and also in making lamps as they have a soul healing power by eradicating the negative energy.
