    I forgot about this relief, baby being protected by Isis? At the Mammisi?

    The temple regulary got flooded in its orginal site. You can see the black water line marks of the floods. With the construction of the Aswan High Dam, the temple would have been 10 meters under the water. Thanks to UNESCO we can still see and enjoy the temple.

    Last of my Philae island trip..

    At night time, we returned to Philae to see the Philae Sound & Light show. Unlike the Giza Sound & Light show (na stationary ka lang), the Philae one would require the audience to move and walk through the different areas in Philae. Parehas sa Karnak Sound & Light show. The story was all about Isis, Osiris and Nephthys and their return to Philae after more than a thousand year of absence..

    My tickets to the main UNESCO World Heritage sites in Nubia. On the left was my ticket to the Philae Sound & Light show, above right for the Philae Temples and bottom left for the two Abu Simbel temples.

    After the Philae show, we went for a stroll along the Aswan Corniche and were rewarded with this stunning view of the Tomb of the Nobles.

    nairita na naman ako dun sa isang website about world attractions, yung mga double standard na posts dun. pag sa bansa nila, "amazing, truly magnificent." kahit na mga monuments nila na wala namang kwenta, or yung waterfalls nila na parang mga fire hydrant lang na tumatagas. :glee:

    tapos yung sa Pilipinas, its ok, but not as impressive as the Pyramids of Egypt or the Grand Canyon.

    bakit pag magandang attractions sa Pilipinas, nakakumpara agad sa Grand Canyon or sa Giza, di mo alam kung mga naiinsecure na defensive or ano.

    Bwisit. :hiya:
  • huntfan01huntfan01 Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ^ Hindi na ako nagko-compare. May kanya kanyang value/strength yung mga nasa listahan ng UNESCO at na-evaluate silang lahat at dumaan sa pagsusuri ng UNESCO experts. I just appreciate it kasi the list represents the best of humanity and the natural world. My goal now is to visit the most number of sites that I can given my limited resources and time. :D
  • nikkilovenikkilove Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    agreed huntie. whats the point di ba? why compare Mt Mayon to the Giza, oo pareho silang triangular shaped, pero archeological naman ang Giza, while Mayon is a volcano. its like comparing an apple with an orange.

    ang katapat ng Giza is yung Angkor [email protected] or yung Machu Pichu. Pero you rarely see these kinds of comparison. mostly talaga parang sa Phil attractions ginagawa yun,

    di nila kumpara ang Mayon sa mga bulkan nila kasi, alam nila mas maganda Mayon. it just shows theyre being insecure. worse kasi, they spread their idiotic perception, umaayon naman yung iba. :hiya:

    kasalanan din kasi ng ibang ma eepal na pilipino yan eh, madalas pag nag back read ka, pilipino pa ang pasimuno ng ganyan eh, nagoopen ng can of worms. makapag comment lang kasi, not thinking of the repercussions ng comment nila na non sense naman. "oh yeah, the Banaue is nice, pero Ive seen the Grand Canyon, which I think is more overwhelming". :rolleyes:

    ok kalma nako. :hiya:
  • huntfan01huntfan01 Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ^ lol. May mga ganyang nega talaga. Hindi ko na lang pinapansin.

    And speaking of the pyramids and comparing and contrasting.. tadah! The Giza Sound & Light Show.. i-compare and contrast with Philae Sound & Light Show! hehehe..

    Well, sabi nung ibang review, cheesy daw, pero for me as an avid fan of everything Egypt, I enjoyed the show. The show talks about the long history of the Giza necropolis.. from its beginnings to its zenith and then to its long and slow decline until the people of Egypt themselves forgot their ancient language and religion.. it then moves on to the re-birth of ancient Egypt via the efforts of the French and the British Egyptologists in the 19th century when they decipher the language of the ancient Egyptians. Pics below..

    So many empty chairs.. affected talaga ang tourism industry ng Egypt. Whereas before the Arab Spring, puno and often times standing yung venue, ngayon naman wala pa kami sa 1/4 ng available na seats sa venue..
    IMG_0005_zps59677979.jpg

    The scribes of ancient Egypt and how they document the customs and traditions of Pharaonic Egypt.
    IMG_0048_zps17dc01cf.jpg

    The Pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure all lit-up and in technicolor. lol.
    IMG_0037_zps6b7b4927.jpg

    Anubis makes an appearance. Anubis is the jackal-headed god of the Giza necropolis. He protects the necropolis and the mummies of the Pharaoh.
    IMG_0029_zps2c228bf9.jpg

    Now it is the Pharaoh's turn..
    IMG_0021_zps0edd3935.jpg

    IMG_0041_zps91e66160.jpg

    IMG_0051_zps5c4f84ab.jpg

    The long decline.. when the language of the ancient Egyptians became silent and the sands of the necropolis as the only witness to their former glory
    IMG_0026_zps29545646.jpg

    Truimphant returned of the ancient Egyptians as the modern world cracked the language of the Pharaohs. For the first time in two millenia, We can read and hear Ramses the Great speaking about his triumph over the Hittites in Battle of Kadesh..

    IMG_0054_zps824e8987.jpg

    All in all a good show for those who know their history..

    My tickets to the Giza attractions..

    How's Mexico? gusto ko na talaga pumunta. kaso kinakabahan kami.

    parang nasa list ng Unesco yang Castle sa Germany.

    pano ka nakapunta from Munich to Neuschwanstein castle?

    sa cancun (eastern side) ako nag-base nung pumunta ako sa mexico. kaya hindi ko pa nakikita ang mexico city at yung teotihuacan pyramid complex (western side). wala naman akong naging problema. mas nahirapan pa ako dahil napapagkamalan akong mexican. pati tourist guide, iniiwasan ako.

    nag-join ako ng day tour package papunta sa castle from munich. maganda kasi dadaan kayo sa bavarian region at may hihintuan pa kayong ibang palace along the way. atsaka, convenient kasi :)
  • nikkilovenikkilove Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ok thanks istar. yan yung pina plan kong iti sa Mexico. actually yan naman talaga ang offered ng mga tour companies, so its really a great deal. Mexico City-Guadalupe-Teotihuacan combo tours.

    ah ok, meron naman palang tours from Munich to the Castle. that's great. di ko naman pala dapat problemahin. thanks istar.

    Wow, thats nice, huntie. Buti ka pa natuloy trips mo. Well done.

    Di ba delikado sa Israel?
    Dream ko din pumunta dyan .

    Ako napako na yung trip ko sa Mexico, hindi pa rin kasi ko nakakarecover sa gastos nitong uwi ko ng march sa pinas.:hiya:
  • huntfan01huntfan01 Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ^ Hindi naman. May misconception lang na dangerous, what with all those hysterical headlines coming from the press. Pero if you were in Israel and exploring the sites, peaceful naman basing on my experience. Madaming Pinoy sa Israel, nakakatuwa nga kasi sila yung tinatanungan ko kapag naguguluhan ako sa directions nung nasa Haifa, Akko, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv at Eilat ako. :D
