Pyramids, scuba diving and crystal clear waters
The resort of Hurghada, with its mixture of old bazaars, beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife is a popular choice from which to experience the Red Sea region, with its slightly quieter neighbour El Gouna, a more laid back option. Marsa Alam, a new and more relaxing option, is ideal for families with a mixture of 3, 4 and 5 star hotels, and also nearby airport keeping transfer times to a minimum. Perhaps the most popular and up and coming resort in this part of the Red Sea is the purpose built Sharm El Sheikh. Lodged between the vast sands of the Sinai Desert and crystal clear waters of the Red Sea, this vibrant stretch of hotels has so much to offer. With all inclusive options meaning you need never leave your complex. For those serious divers a trip out to the Ras Mohammed National Park cannot be missed.
A holiday to Taba, will offer sensational sunsets, with a laid back atmosphere. Most of the entertainment is based around your hotel so there is no need to venture far unless you want to. Again, the diving and snorkelling in this area are exceptional, as are some of the sights you can visit, like the Lost City of Petra, or the Egyptian capital Cairo. A city of contrast with its bustling centre and amazing sights, whether you stay in Cairo or just visit it for a day, you cannot leave without witnessing one of the most amazing sights in the world; the Pyramids of Giza, guarded by the breathtaking Sphinx. The resort of Luxor will engulf you in history, on the east bank lies the Karnak Temple, or on the west bank the equally impressive Valley of the Kings and Tomb of Tutankhamen. With accommodation ranging from lovely holiday apartments to luxurious hotels, whether basing your holiday here or just sightseeing, you will be left totally amazed by its rich history and stunning beauty.
If you can’t decide where to stay or what to do first, then try a Nile Cruise. A relaxing way to discover ancient Egypt with an ever changing horizon, explore as much or as little as you like, or combine a cruise with another week in any of the wondrous resorts Egypt has to offer. Once you’ve experienced Egypt, you’ll want to return again and again, from the depths of the colourful coral reefs, to the tips of the awe-inspiring pyramids; Egypt is a holiday you will never forget.
