Egypt

Last updated: 21 January 2018
Egypt, land of Pharaohs, Pyramids and sand, whether exploring by boat, donkey or camel, there is always something interesting on the horizon in Egypt. With a wealth of historical sights and a diverse culture, Egypt has been a popular tourist destination since the days of the ancient Greeks and Romans.

Egypt is not just a land of ancient wonders it is also blessed with coral reefs and tropical fish at the Red Sea beach resorts, where diving and other water sports are very popular.

The desert sands bear witness to ancient and mystical civilizations with tombs, pyramids and temples scattered across the country. Here too the remnants of more recent history, with ruins of Coptic Churches, Monasteries and Mosques amongst the antiquities.

Egypt has something for every traveller from ancient relics to vast and rolling desert sands, from scuba diving in the coral reefs of the Red Sea, to sailing down the Nile, shopping in the bazaars of Alexandria or exploring classic and ancient art in Cairo’s famed museums.

Egypt was once a hugely popular tourist destination but since the uprisings of 2011, the country has been struggling to attract tourists. Most parts of Egypt are now safe and audacious travellers can now explore the country without the hordes of tourists.
