If you are then don’t  just take a cheap flight to the main holiday hotspots – you need to make sure that you take a flight to Cairo

Everyone has heard of the Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx near Cairo but many people will miss out by flying to Luxor or to Sharm el Sheikh. You need to see Cairo if you want to appreciate all that Egypt has to offer. In Cairo, you can see the Egyptian Museum and the grand bazaar – Coptic Cairo – as well as winding alleyways and the mosques of the medieval quarter.

Luxor is hundreds of miles south of Cairo and situated on the magnificent River Nile. On the west bank of the Nile in Luxor you will find the Temple of Hatshepsut and Valley of the Kings whilst on the east bank of the Nile you will find Karnak and Luxor temples.Many people extend their Egptian tour to see Aswan or you can take a Nile Cruise from Luxor. Most Nile cruises take you to Aswan to see the dam or you can see Aga khan’s mausoleum and then visit Abu Simbel for the Great Temple of Ramses.If you love ancient history and are looking for a winter holiday then a holiday to Egypt to visit the temples is well worth thinking about.

If you are looking for a beach holiday and good quality hotels together with crystal clear waters for diving and snorkeling then a holiday to the Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh might well be the answer.

    Most people who think of Egypt think of antiquities, but Egypt offers much more. Certainly it is a prime location to see our great heritage from the ancient world, including Pyramids and wonderful temples, but it is also part of the Holy Land, and tours to Christian and other religious monuments are popular. Yet Egypt also offers nature and desert treks, great scuba diving and even golf, fishing and birding expeditions. One may choose to relax on the wondrous Egypt Red Sea or Sinai coasts, take in the high culture of Cairo, or even leisurely float down the Egyptian Nile on a luxurious river boat.
