Whether you're walking down the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, cruising down the Nile, diving in the Red Sea or lazing on the beach, Egypt promises an amazing holiday.
The world's oldest tourist destination, travellers have been making the pilgrimage to Egypt for thousands of years. Even the ancient Greeks and Romans, who had their own fair share of architectural feats, came to admire Egypt's iconic monuments. And if the land of the pharaohs impressed them, it's sure to blow your mind. From prodigious pyramids that fringe the Sahara Desert, to cosmopolitan cities and bustling bazaars, to sandy shores and world-class diving, you'll not find another holiday destination as diverse as Egypt.
Pyramids, mummies and tombs – we've all learnt about the ancient Egyptians at school so we'll skip the history lesson. Besides, explaining over four thousand years of history would take far too long and you'll probably fall asleep. Instead why don't you book a holiday and experience it all for yourself? Today, Egypt remains a treasure trove of relics kindly left behind by the ancient Egyptians, and they're just waiting for you to go and admire them in all their glory.
Giza, just south of Cairo, is the third largest city in Egypt. It's home to the pyramids, which are the only remaining survivor of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. They're easy enough to walk around but, for a more memorable experience, barter for a camel ride – no other mode of transport quite compares to bobbing around atop a camel's hump. Just remember, you'll be expected to pay extra for the souvenir selfie at the end. Once inside, unleash your inner Tomb Raider and explore the narrow, winding paths of the pyramids. Be sure to arrive early though as only a handful of tickets are released each day. Stick around for the light and sound show that takes place at the mighty Sphinx each evening. It's a great way to learn some fun facts and makes for some pretty impressive holiday snaps.
