Over 12 million tourists flock to Egypt annually and it is fast becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. But don’t worry if you are the type of person who isn’t a fan of traditional tourist destinations, Egypt is somewhere you can fully immerse yourself into the local culture.
Imagine standing at the base in the shadow of the Great Pyramid, looking up at the awe-inspiring monument that has stood since 2580 BC. The oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Great Pyramid is the only one that remains largely intact. Continue your tour through ancient history with a visit to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, where you can see the mummified remains of ancient kings, or perhaps you would prefer a relaxing river-boat trip along the longest river in the world – the Nile.
Bring yourself back to the modern-day by visiting some of the crystal clear beaches bordering the Red Sea, enjoying traditional seafood cuisine in one of the many beachfront restaurants. With stunning white sandy beaches, Egypt is the perfect destination for lazing on the beach under the shade of a palm tree whilst dipping in and out of the turquoise waters of the Red Sea to cool off.
