Quick Guide to Egypt
Egypt is a desert country bridging between the Middle East and North Africa. The River Nile, the Mediterranean and the Red Sea coast provide much-needed respite from the heat and it's in these places that you will find a wide range of fantastic spots for a holiday. Look out for Nile cruise deals with Red Sea stays to make the most of the country and your holiday budget.
No longer an arduous or expensive journey away, it's now easier than ever to bag a cheap flight with a budget airline. That makes a stay in Hurghada or Sharm El Sheikh in 2014 and 2015 a great way to make your money go further. And sunshine, beaches and stunning diving will never go out of fashion in our opinion!
Don't forget about the other fab holiday destinations here too - the ones that have been popular with tourists for hundreds of years. Many of these date back to the time of the Pharaohs and include the amazing sights of Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, as well as the Great Pyramids of Giza. You can either book a hotel in Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor or hop on a Nile Cruise; it'll take you to all big attractions lining the river, and you travel in the comfort of an all inclusive boat!
After something unusual? Then seek out a holiday to one of the desert oases, like the Siwa Oasis, which is the very image of a green and pleasant land in the middle of the desert.
