With glorious year-round sunshine, Egypt holidays are a chance to indulge on beautiful white beaches, dive into varicoloured coral reefs and visit some of the world’s most important historical landmarks, whenever you decide to make the tantalising trip.
With Egypt ranking as one of the top all inclusive destinations for holidaymakers and tourists, Sharm el Sheikh is fast becoming the go to resort when it comes to enjoying the winter and summer sun. A resplendent resort, there’s no better place to enjoy the vibrant views and extravagant wildlife that lies beneath the surface of the Red Sea, while plenty of things to do including an array of water sports in and around the surrounding areas will keep the whole family entertained throughout your holidays to Egypt.
Arriving in Egypt can be one of the most welcoming experiences you’ll find on holiday, and with friendly people in every corner of the country you’ll feel right at home in no time. As with all countries in the Middle East, ensure you check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office before booking your holidays.
With a range of affordable and luxury resorts you can always be sure to find the perfect accommodation wherever you choose to stay on your holidays to Egypt, whether you fancy overlooking the Nile from a five star retreat in Luxor, lavishing your stay with views of the Mediterranean along the coasts of Alexandria or delving into the diving wonders which await you in Sharm El Sheikh - Egypt is the place for you. Make your stay comfortable in Cairo where you’ll be able to haggle at markets, or use the city as a perfect base for your excursions back through time to witness the Pyramids of Giza.
One of the sites making the basis for a blissfully beautiful beach break will be Hurghada, situating you ideally to relinquish yourself to the wondrous Red Sea, while also providing the kids with a fun day out in Makadi Water World or Jungle Aqua Park – a great way for the little ones to expel some energy on your Egypt holidays before heading back to the hotel to catch the evening entertainment.
Peruse Ancient Pyramids
Egypt is teeming with historical treasures and ancient artefacts; among those you’ll find a plethora of pyramids in the arid deserts, time-forgotten shipwrecks beneath the surface of the Red Sea surrounding El Gouna, as well as sphinxes and tombs in dedication to power-hungry pharaohs. Make sure you visit Alexandria while on your holidays in Egypt to meander around the modern library that houses inimitable icons from the famous period encapsulating Cleopatra’s reign, and also other later periods in the Ancient Egyptian era.
If you want to get to the heart of everything Egyptian, then visiting the capital is a good bet, Cairo being home to the lively hub of activity which includes markets, bustling restaurants and countless museums, artefacts and monuments. A trip to Cairo wouldn’t be complete during your Egypt holidays without an adventure down the River Nile, stopping off at Giza to view the majestic pyramids that loom over wind-swept sands, while hopping back on the cruise liner will embellish your holidays with the incredible sights that line the river banks.
Why not journey into Luxor? Uncover the hidden treasures of the Valley of the Kings, while reading the stories of ancient pharaohs at Medinat Habu, etched on the walls of the Luxor Temple. Egypt holidays will surely provide you with an array of unforgettable experiences with the family, whether you venture out into the desert on hump-backed camels, dive into diamond-coloured waters or explore the saturated streets of Cairo – holidays in Egypt are without a doubt the most spell-binding opportunity you simply have to take!
