For millennia, travellers the world over have been fascinated by Egypt. Today, Egypt’s rich history has created a tapestry of cultural and archaeological treasures unmatched anywhere in the world.
Filled with awe-inspiring monuments of ancient civilisation as well as some of the best preserved, Luxor is considered the world’s largest open air museum and home to one third of the world’s antiquities making it one of the main tourist attractions in Egypt.
Cairo, Egypt’s capital, is a destination in itself. A bustling and crowded metropolis full of intriguing contrasts – old and new, western and oriental, modern hotels next to traditional bazaars and coffee shops, 5,000-year-old pyramids and 19th century palaces. The haunting wilderness of the Western Desert, with its vast expanses of sand dunes and spectacular desert scenery, is also host to an array of fascinating oasis towns and villages, each with their own culture and ancient monuments.
The Red Sea coast and the Sinai offer superb opportunities for diving and snorkeling, as well as spectacular desert safaris either in 4x4s or on camelback. Saint Catherine’s Monastery is the region’s main tourist attraction, while water sports, PGA-standard golf courses and world-class spas make a spell on Egypt’s coastline a treat for every visitor.
