Mesmerising ancient sites, fascinating medieval attractions and beautiful beaches await visitors who choose to explore Egypt. With beautiful weather year round, book an exotic escape today.
The pyramids of ancient Egypt, which sit proudly on the Giza Plateau, are arguably the most iconic image of a country with a long history of development and achievement. Other major sites from ancient times include the Sphinx, also at Giza, Abu Simbel in the south and Karnak in Luxor. Dotted along the Nile are many other ancient structures which are also fascinating. The famous tombs in the Valley of the Queens and the Valley of the Kings are located just outside Luxor and should be admired for the artistry on their walls.
Aside from the ancient ruins, you might also be interested in the impressive structures in Cairo. Add to your sight-seeing list the Al-Azhar Mosque, Ibn Tulun and the Mosque of Mohamed Ali Pasha. Also in the nation's capital are fascinating Coptic churches and a Synagogue. To shop for souvenirs, head to Khan El Khalily, a beautiful souk or central market.
For many travellers, a felucca ride on the Nile is the ultimate experience to enjoy on an Egyptian holiday. On the other hand, you might like to escape the hustle of central Cairo by heading to Giza Zoo or the Botanical Gardens. Another unique experience to enjoy is a boat ride across to Dahab where you can relax in the Red Sea resort town which offers excellent snorkelling. Active travellers will also enjoy the climb up Mount Sinai.
