Visit Egypt: A Guide to a Different Side of Egypt
Egypt is well known for it's desert scape beauty but it holds other treasures for anyone looking for a beautiful vacation.
Holiday in Egypt means relaxation and adventure at the same time. You can relax on the sandy beaches of the Red Sea, or dive into the pristine waters at Hurghada, the diver's paradise, one of the largest and most popular resorts in Egypt offering summer swimming in endless, 20 mile long beaches.
If it is active recreation that you seek, there are many possibilities open. Whether windsurfing, fishing, or boating do not forget also about the colorful underwater world open to snorkeling and scuba diving. The rich flora and fauna, crystal clear water, and many sunken ships offer breathtaking moments along the coral reef. Also available are small tourist submarines and glass-bottom boats that help the land-lover share in the exploration of all that is beautiful under the sea.
Evenings are a uniquely relaxed time when spent with fine Egyptian wines. Unfortunately, due to the predominant Muslim culture, there is a limitation on alcohol and that certainly cuts into the nightlife.
Cairo remains as the most popular travel destination in Egypt but you should not overlook Alexandria!
The city of Alexandria is located three hours north of Cairo. Alexandria borders the Mediterranean Sea while offering a view of ancient Egypt completely unique from other major Egyptian cities. Like Cairo, Alexandria has its share of the familiar tourist sites like museums, mosques, monuments and shopping areas. The Greco-Roman Museum, in the heart of the city, gives the visitor a picture of the Roman period much different than that of the Egyptian period. But what sets this northern city apart the most is the Mediterranean shoreline and the various water adventures that can be had.
A historic tour of the country is, in any case, a must! Hotels and tour operators offer many different tours in all directions of the country, so you can soon find yourself in the world of temples, mosques, pyramids, and immerse yourself in the ruins of such an enchanting ancient culture. In the strange-looking desert landscape, Pharaohs signed their power by building incredible structures like the beautiful Sphinx, the pyramids of Giza, the temples of Luxor and Karnak, or the Valley of the Kings where some of the most unique and beautiful treasures have been discovered throughout the ages.
Visit Egypt and go on a journey of discovery of the many secrets still waiting to be unveiled all while relaxing in the incredible scenery along beautiful beaches.
