Egypt is the ultimate holiday destination. This Red Sea destination offers tourists from all over the world a wonderful perspective of the Arabian culture combined with top class quality holiday facilities.

Holidays in Egypt have a dazzling way of making you fall in love with this place from the start: a fantastic mix of cultures, beautiful history and archeological sites, a delightful weather all year round, luxurious five star hotel resorts, unbelievably crystal clear waters and of course, many shopping markets where you can bargain and get beautiful things at very affordable prices.

Most people are attracted by the ancient artifacts like Giza’s pyramids, the Sphinx and the Tutankhamun’s tomb, but the country shouldn’t be seen as an old fashion museum. The modern influences have no limits here in Egypt and you can delight yourself with amazing spa treatments and adrenaline rush water sports. The main attraction points for a splendid vacation in Egypt are Sharm El Sheikh, Luxor and Hurghada. These places are filled with tourists all year round making them the ideal place to spend your leisure time and charge your batteries to the fullest.

Sharm El Sheikh is very popular for diving and snorkeling activities due to the coral reefs and the high amount of marine life that exists here. Not to mention the safari trips you can take nearby the Sinai desert. You’ll have a blast, that’s for sure!

Luxor is the supreme destination for those seeking to mix their vacation needs with their thirst for knowledge and culture. Best places to put on your holiday bucket list for attraction spots are Luxor Temple on the banks of the Nile, Karnak Temple and the Theban Necropolis where you can see the Valley of the Kings and the Tomb of Tutankhamun.

For a fine selection of bars and restaurants this former small fishing village, Hurghada, is the top spot for souvenir shopping, fresh food markets and designer mall outlets. While here, you should buy some handmade gifts for the loved ones back home; they’ll appreciate the thought.

It’s impossible to visit Egypt and not see its major city, the capital- Cairo. Here you can visit the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and nearby Cairo is one of the Seven Wonders of the World- the Pyramids of Giza.
