Thinking about a holiday to Egypt? Whether you’re after Pyramids and world-class museums, or sandy beaches and coral reefs, this part of Africa covers all bases.
Egypt’s best bits
Egypt. There’s nowhere else quite like it. Think feluccas drifting down the Nile, Pyramids rising out of the desert, and bazaars stacked with spices. And then there are the beaches – miles of golden sand, all facing the snorkel-friendly waters of the Red Sea.
Standout sights in Luxor
Most people tend to think of the Pyramids whenever Egypt’s mentioned. But this place is no one-trick pony when it comes to sightseeing. Luxor is case in point. From here you’ve got the Temple of Karnak, the Luxor Temple and the Valley of the Kings within striking distance.
A great way to pack in loads of the big sights is on a Nile cruise. Sail down the world’s most famous river and hop off to visit sights like Edfu Temple and Abu Simbel.
Red Sea & Sinai
Of course, ancient treasures aren’t Egypt’s only trump card. The Red Sea Riviera is the place to head for sandy beaches and luxe resorts. It’s a diver’s dream too, with kaleidoscopic corals and marine life just beneath the surface.
