When we think of Egypt, we conjure up images of huge pyramids, endless sandy deserts and camel rides! But actually there’s an awful lot more to discover on a holiday to Egypt.
Cairo is a busy bustling medieval town full of mystique and wonder with its winding dusty streets, colourful bazaars and markets. Further along the Nile you will find Luxor, a town full of history with its ancient monuments and burial chambers. To the south is the more tranquil Aswan with its pretty sailing boats and palm-fringed sands. The west of the country is where you will find endless sand dunes, the occasional camel and the ever-famous towering pyramids of wonder.
Away from the historic sights and towns uncover a beach lover’s paradise. Think long stretches of glistening waters, cool cocktails and some of the best scuba-diving in the world. The ever popular resort of Sharm el Sheikh sits on the Red Sea coast attracting many a holidaymaker year after year with its stunning beaches, luxury all-inclusive hotels and buzzing nightlife.
Egypt’s weather is unsurprisingly hot all year round with most of the country lying within the region of the Sahara desert. The winter months average a temperature of 25°, during the summer months temperatures can hit a soaring 41° which is far too hot for most, so an out of season break can be much more agreeable.
If you are planning a trip during the winter, it’s a good idea to book early and search for the best deals online, as all-inclusive resorts offer top class accommodation and service yet they are available at very reasonable prices when booked well in advance.
Getting around in Egypt is easily done - there are many buses and taxis available and both are much cheaper than UK prices. But do make sure you agree a price and currency with a taxi driver beforehand. Hiring a car is another option, especially for those wanting to do lots of exploring in different areas of Egypt, it means you have the freedom to take to the road when it suits you. Cars can usually be picked up from the airport through reputable companies - do your research and book online where possible to guarantee the right type of vehicle.
