Holidays to Egypt have long been enjoyed by those wishing to follow in the footsteps of great explorers and discover the magic and mystery of the monuments left behind by the ancient civilisation. Discover the delights of the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Sphinx, the temple of Luxor and, of course, the Valley of the Kings. The Nile area is a popular destination for those wishing to indulge in the tradition and famous sights of Egypt at Cairo and Luxor, while the Red Sea and Sinai areas feature pristine, white sandy beaches to take advantage of the year round sunshine and high temperatures at Sharm el Sheikh.
In addition to sightseeing, there are number of exciting activities which take advantage of the breath-taking natural surroundings. Off the sandy beaches of the Red Sea resorts, snorkelling and diving are popular, allowing tourists to get up-close to exotic wildlife in their natural habitat. The resorts near Mount Sinai offer opportunities to explore on foot; watch the sunrise from the top of the mountain or beat the heat with a jeep safari through the landscape. In Sharm el Sheikh, many tourists enjoy unique experiences following the nomadic Bedouins; sunset camel rides through the desert as well as overnight stays in traditional tents mean unforgettable memories are never far away.
History buffs will be able to explore some of the oldest temples, tombs and monuments from a base in Luxor or Cairo. Tutankhamen’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings remains a particular favourite as well as the temple of Luxor, built in 1400BC and Queen Hatshepsut’s distinctive temple.
