With its golden desert, hot climate, exotic culture and rich history, Egypt is a delight for all the senses.
Whether it’s a fast-paced city break, an exploration of the country’s iconic sand dunes or a trip slightly further afield, Egypt offers something for every type of vacation.
The exhilaration of Cairo is unrivalled, as the capital city offers a hustling, bustling metropolis of markets, museums and mosques. And no trip to Egypt is complete without drinking in the iconic sight of the Pyramids of Giza. The last remaining ancient wonder of the world, the Pyramids stand as a tribute to the nation’s history and are an awe-inspiring sight to behold.
The Egyptian Museum, Coptic Museum and Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo offer important collections of the country’s artefacts and are well worth a visit. A trip to Khan Al Khalili or Tentmakers Market is also a perfect way to spend a day; wandering through the narrow laneways of some of Cairo’s most popular medieval-style malls.
The River Nile is another must-see while in Egypt, and a river cruise is the perfect way to explore the multitude of cultural sights along the way. Temples, Pyramids and the medieval Islamic fortification, Cairo Citadel, are ripe for exploring on a cruise.
From Egypt, you’re also perfectly positioned to explore its surrounding areas. Eritrea is a nature-lovers paradise where natural beauty abounds, while Lebanon surprises as a must-visit destination, with its capital city Beirut offering a progressive and modern culture.
