Egypt might be home to some of the most important historical sites and treasures the world has ever seen, but that doesn’t mean that a holiday here comes with a high-end price tag. Far from it, in fact.
Cheap holidays to Sharm el Sheikh are readily available and offer the perfect chance to visit this sacred country and see a whole host of breathtaking historical treasures, in-between flaking out on the beach and doing close to nothing at all. Here in Sharm el Sheikh you’ll find a classic beach holiday environment – with desert-like sands and warm clear waters that are simply teeming with tropical fish and vibrant sea life, which makes for great scuba diving or a spot of snorkelling. For something a little more active you’ll also find plenty of water sports on offer.
Combining the best of both worlds – with a journey of discovery on the one hand, and all the classic ingredients of a perfect beach break on the other – Egypt holidays really are something, and with so many package choices on offer you can do as much or as little as you like.
Thanks to its temperate climate, holidays to Egypt are available year-round which means you can come in the cooler months to take advantage of some serious sightseeing, and still come home with a tan. Or if you’re a serious sun-bather, you can hot things up and visit during the summer months to really experience its desert-like heat.
If you enjoy sampling the local fare, you’ll love Egypt’s diverse cuisine – where everything from Western-inspired dishes and Mediterranean favourites such as falafel vie for competition with Kushari – a mixture of rice, lentils and chickpeas – which is widely considered as the national dish.
Whatever you’re into, Egypt is a wonderful place of contrasts that never fails to produce great holiday memories.
