Egypt holidays are perfect for travelling back in time or for a luxury beach break at a great price. Luxor’s ancient tombs and Giza’s pyramids rub shoulders with the gorgeous resorts in Marsa Alam and Sharm el Sheikh without a hitch, while Hurghada city fuses old traditions and new influences flawlessly. If you like to get active, there’s plenty to keep you entertained during your holidays in Egypt. Travel to Alexandria and marvel at Pompei’s Pillar, which overlooks the grand ruins of the original settlement.
A perfect destination for travelling year-round, Egypt is best visited between the months of September and April. Christmas, New Year and Easter celebrations in Egypt receive heavy footfall from all across the globe. The summers are pretty hot and if you are looking for a less-crowded Egypt vacation on a budget trip, you can try May and June.
If you are flying from UK, there are direct flights connecting London’s Heathrow and Gatwick to Cairo and Hurghada respectively. You can touch down Egypt within five and a half hours. Both Hurghada and Marsa Alam Airports are well connected to major tourist hotspots in the country. After you have checked in at your hotel, soak up the sun on mile-long stretches of soft white sand and dip your toes in the crystal-clear waters of the Red Sea, or dive a little deeper and explore some of the world's best scuba diving sites. Thanks to its toasty year-round temperatures, you can potter around giant pyramids, splash in sparkling pools and sink into golden beaches whenever the mood takes you!
