Map of Egypt Egypt is an Islamic country with Cairo as its capital. The river Nile flows right across it and most of the settlements are around the river. Rest of the country is a desert.

Its currency is the Egyptian Pound, written as LE and often referred to in Egypt as "egyptian" only. 1LE = 7.5 INR these days. There are three tourist sectors in Egypt, one along the Nile exploring the ancient monuments, which is the most popular among Indians. The second is the white desert where you stay in Oasis. And the third are the various sea resorts along the Red Sea coast, which is most popular among the Russian and Eurpoean tourists.
