Fancy a holiday in Egypt? This country has masses of culture, coastline, and cuisine just waiting for you to explore. If your perfect Egypt holiday involves lots of time basking in the sun, vibrant resort towns like Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada will tick all the boxes. Dip your toes into the balmy waters or (literally) take the plunge and explore some of the best diving sites in the world. And when you’re done, get stuck into everything from karaoke to decadent dinners in these friendly locations.
There are loads of places where you can let your inner nerd out too. Walk like an Egyptian over to the Great Pyramids, which were built more than 4,000 years ago without a power tool in sight and get ready for a history lesson that’s anything but a snorefest. They're just a short hop from the buzzing capital, Cairo, so you can get a good mix of culture, shopping, and kicking back in one place.
Other thriving cities like Luxor and Aswan are spilling over with things to see and do. It’s hard to believe some of Egypt’s best-known sites, like Karnak temple, are thousands of years old — those ancient Egyptians knew how to build stuff that’s sturdier than a rickety flat-pack. Not so keen on walking miles? Drift away down the world’s longest river, the Nile, and see the sites in style instead. You’ll get a taste of real Egyptian rural life and get to spot the busy metropolises without getting caught in the crowds.
