Travel Agency you will
Find a cheap holiday to Egypt, a destination that combines history
and culture, with lively entertainment. All of Egypt is so ludicrously
steeped in history, from its biblical connections (a young Jesus was taken
to Egypt by his family when he was but a lad, not a holidays exactly, they
were trying to escape naughty Herod’s death sentence on Jewish children) to
the might of King Ramesses II whose mummified remains are still displayed in
the Egyptian Museum in Cairo some 3500 years after his death, there’s wonder
and mystery everywhere. The massive city of Cairo with its 15 million plus
population, Minarets, bazaars, and unbridled luxury rubbing shoulders with
utter poverty is an incredible place, but a surprising order and relatively
low crime rate prevails. Holidays to Cairo are an excellent choice for those
who like the hussle and bussle of a lively, but safe, city.
Relaxing on Egypt holidays
With year round sun, dazzling white beaches, vibrant coral reefs and some of
the world’s most important historical sites, holidays to Egypt are something
Only 5 hours from the UK, Egypt feels like a world away from home. With its
hot and sunny climate, Egypt holidays are perfect any time of the year and
have something to offer everyone.
Incredible Egypt holidays
The Red Sea coast of Egypt is fast becoming a favourite destination for
beach holidays, with the bustling beach resort of Sharm El Sheikh located by
its crystal clear water. Spend your days soaking up the sun on the sandy
beaches or exploring the clear waters which are perfect for all water sports
from jet skiing to scuba diving; with some of the world’s best dive sites
located just off the shore.
If you are looking for a beach resort away from the hustle and bustle of
Sharm El Sheikh, head to the more traditional resort of Hurghada and enjoy
its more relaxed atmosphere; perfect for those in search of a peaceful Egypt
holiday. Along with El Gouna and Marsa Alam, these beach resorts have more
to offer than just beautiful beaches; enjoy an evening out at one of the
clubs, wander around the street markets or discover the many historical
sites. Beach holidays in Egypt really do have something to offer everyone.
There are few places to visit in the world that have
been receiving tourists as long as Egypt has. Over 2000 years ago Romans
were cruising up the Nile and visiting the pyramids, long before the early
explorers from the UK came back with tails of amazing structures in the
desert. We’ve more than just pointy buildings to thank ancient Egypt for –
there’s the calendar, clocks, paper, and, unfortunately, cats. They weren’t
that clever then, we think they should have domesticated otters, which are
far more intelligent, and could live in the bath.
Cheap Egypt Holidays - The Pyramids
The pyramids are hardly surrounded just by desert
anymore, the most famous pyramids we mean, as there are over 100 pyramids in
Egypt, but some are falling to bits more so than the most famous ones – the
pyramids of Giza. The massive urban sprawl of Cairo reaches almost to the
foot of the great Giza pyramids, where the largest pyramid ever built
dominates the skyline. The Cheops pyramid is a great wonder of the world,
and in the middle of the three main pyramids that make up the Giza pyramids.
They are mausoleums really, for the mummified remains of King Cheops (and a
few wives) and are pyramid shaped because anything in a pyramid is supposed
to live forever. Cheops was the possibly first fellow to be mummified. The
surface of the pyramids was once perfectly smooth with all the entrances
invisible, but this surface was eventually hacked away and a long process of
plundering began in about 820 AD.
Cheap Egypt Holidays - A Great Place to Relax
However, you can go to Egypt and never see a pyramid
should you be settling down for a few weeks and enjoying your summer
holidays in Sharm el-Sheikh, as it’s a good 335 miles from Cairo and the
Giza pyramids. You can spend weeks in Sharm el-Sheikh doing nothing other
than sitting on the private beaches, enjoying some of the best diving in the
world in the Red Sea, having a go in the casino, and generally enjoying the
nightlife of the Red Sea Riviera. The pyramids and Cairo itself aren’t
completely out of the question from Sharm el-Sheikh – a long and fairly
gruelling way in a coach, but not impossible, much easier by air of course.
There’s Mount Sinai to explore, and you can hunt for bits of the tablet with
the 5 commandments on it that Moses dropped on his way down with the 15
Or how about spending your holidays in Taba. Taba is a
relatively newly reachable town, on the border of Israel, its airport only
opened in 2000. You can get a bus to Eilat across the border in Israel quite
easily, but there’s plenty to do here, as long as being cosseted in cheap
five star all-inclusive luxury in Egypt and enjoying the hospitality of the
wonderful Egyptian people is alright with you. It’s a resort still in
development, but that doesn’t mean it’s a building site. There are strict
local rules and laws that developers have to comply with that help protect
the natural environment and delicate ecological balance of the red sea, and
the Sinai desert, which is one of the most stunning deserts in the world.
Hurghada is fairly new too, not quite as new as Taba as
a resort, as it’s been growing and spreading out along the Red Sea for
nearly 30 years now and currently stretches for about 26 miles along the
coast. Holidays to Hurghada offer nightlife, diving, great weather, and
hospitality – what else could you want on holiday?
Low Cost Holidays in Egypt – Plenty of Attractions
The massive city of Cairo or smaller Luxor, where you
might visit should you go on a Valley of the Kings trip to see the mummy of
Tutankhamun, are everything you’d expect – huge sprawling masses of
humanity, most of whom seem intent on extracting cash from you for various
reasons. Keep your wits about you and you’ll be okay though. And do be
careful crossing the road! Expect lots of people to be ‘guarding’ the main
attractions, such as the pyramids, and try not to let being led slightly
astray spoil your visit, just focus on what you need to do and brush aside
any offers to go on other impromptu tours that you haven’t planned.
Women should dress conservatively in this mainly Muslim
country of course, which means arms and legs covered incidentally,
especially if you’re visiting a Mosque or other place of worship. There are
posh hotels galore both in the cities and the Red Sea Riviera resorts.
However, even in the posh bits you don’t have to stray too far to find many
people desperate to get you into their taxi, on their tour, or otherwise
parting with your money. None of this is dangerous or intimidating enough to
make it a massive problem, security is high in Egypt, so don’t miss Egypt
off your list of ‘must visit’ places. Far from it in fact, Egypt belongs
right at the top of that list as it never disappoints.
The pyramids and sphinx are not the only historic
monuments in Egypt of course, but they are the only remaining examples of
the Seven Wonders of the World, It’s stunning to be there, in the heat on
the edge of the desert, locals vying for your attention, what was the
tallest building in the world for thousands of years dominating the skyline.
Like the rest of Egypt, the pyramids don’t disappoint. If you go inside, to
which there’s a limit of 300 people per day at the moment, don’t expect it
to be a particularly comfortable experience, especially if you’re anything
over about 5’6 tall. They weren’t built for us lot to clamber round in!
Security issues and concerns are as paramount in Egypt
as they are anywhere else in the world these days, but the Egyptian
authorities have more experience than most at handling things and are
generally well thought of internationally.
