HOLIDAYS TO EGYPT

If you love Egyptology or history, holidays to Egypt are truly a must. You can visit the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Great Sphinx and see these marvels with your own eyes – you will not be disappointed. View the many ancient treasures in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo before taking a cruise down the Nile and making a stop at the Valley of the Kings, as well as the Luxor temple, which has been called the world’s most impressive open-air museum.

Egypt is also a great destination to relax at all-inclusive beach resorts. Soft white sands and swaying palm trees can be found at popular Red Sea resorts such as Sharm el-Sheikh, Hurghada and Dahab.

Try your hand at scuba diving and snorkeling for a chance to see the beautiful coral reefs and marine wildlife. If the sea isn’t your thing, why not try camel riding or dune buggies in the desert? Most resorts will offer these things as additional options on your holidays to Egypt.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO GO ON HOLIDAY TO EGYPT?

The best time to go on holidays to Egypt depends on what part of the country you plan to visit. If you’re after sightseeing trips, it is recommended to go between November and March. This is considered the high season in Egypt, so you can expect the prices to also be at their highest.

During the summer months you might find it too hot to actively explore the country, so if you plan to visit between July and August going to Alexandria might be your best bet as the city tends to be cooler than the rest of the country during these months.

The best time to visit is usually considered to be the months of March, April and September. This is when the crowds are the smallest, prices are down and the temperature is good. If you plan to explore the Western Desert region, beware that spring can sometimes see sandstorms although your tour operator should know this.
