Great Places to Visit
Whether you fancy Egypt for the ancient history, or you’re after a luxury beach break at a great price, there’s never a bad time to holiday here.
Journey Back in Time
If you want to discover the wonders of times past, you’re in the right place. Wander through the Valley of the Kings and gaze at the Temple of Karnak in Luxor, brave the crawlspaces of the Pyramids of Giza, stand in the shadow of the Sphinx, or feast your eyes on King Tut’s death mask in Cairo. It’s the best history lesson you’ll ever have!
Wander the Bazaars
Hurghada is a labyrinth of pretty streets that are a dream to explore. From the exotic aroma of spices drifting through the air, to the haggling to be had, the souks are overwhelming. But the city’s prime position on the Red Sea means you can snorkel, or kick back and relax on the golden sands, to recover from your souk sprees.
Sail Along the Nile
See some of the major sights that Egypt offers up, from the deck of a traditional white-sailed felucca, as you bob along down the River Nile. You can see most of Luxor’s treasures from the river (handily), as well as quaint villages that time has forgotten. Watch the sunset cast its orange blanket to finish the experience nicely.
Bask on the Red Sea Riviera
Home to exotic resorts such as hip Sharm el Sheikh and laidback Marsa Alam, the Red Sea Riviera is THE place to be if you’re a beach bum; except here, you’ll get much more than just sun, sea and sand. You’ll also be met with a coral reef perfect for diving, watersports aplenty, great shopping and plenty more.
