Giza Pyramids have made TIME Magazine's list of the world's most incredible places to visit in 2023.

The TIME noted that the Giza Pyramids and Saqqara places attract a large number of tourists, both from the country as well as abroad.

It referred to the latest archaeological discoveries in Saqqara, such as the cemetery of animals.

The magazine further mentioned the opening of the Sphinx International Airport in November and the Grand Egyptian Museum.

According to the magazine, the list is chosen from nominations submitted by an "international network of correspondents and contributors, with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences."

The Giza pyramid complex, also known as the Giza necropolis, is home to the Great Pyramid, the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Pyramid of Menkaure, along with their associated pyramid complexes and the Great Sphinx. All were built during the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom of ancient Egypt, between 2500 and 2600 BC. The site also includes several temples and cemeteries and the remains of a workers' village.
