Egypt is a great winter destination that suits the most eclectic of tastes. The excellent array of luxury holiday resorts means there is something for everyone to enjoy. Sail down the Nile in the lap of luxury, taking a tour of temples, pyramids and ruins. Alternatively, stay in a hotel by the Red Sea, where the scuba-diving is ranked among the best in the world.
There is the possibility to combine the old Egypt with the new. Visit the temples of Luxor, Karnak, Edfu and Dendera then escape to the cool of the high domed city mosques. View one of the Seven Great Wonders of the World, the Pyramids of Giza and then in nearby Cairo, see Tutankhamen’s treasures. By visiting the famous medieval citadel and shop in open air bazaars before visiting the opera house one is able to soak in the multifaceted culture on a tailor-made break. Or simply take a stroll around the streets of Cairo where long-robed men in donkey carts mix with suited business people.
Whatever you decide, the land of the Pharaohs offers a fascinating blend of ancient marvels and modern comforts, combined with fabulous recreational possibilities and a perfect climate that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
