Why Egypt is the perfect destination for a luxury holiday

Egypt has been a top tourist destination for many years and it’s no wonder why, thanks to its ancient history, towering landmarks, relaxing beaches and luxurious resorts. The country is the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure, while also remaining a great value destination with affordable luxury options. 

Incredible history

One of the many reasons people flock to Egypt is the remarkable historical sites. Home to two of the Ancient Seven Wonders of the World – the Pyramids of Giza and the Lighthouse of Alexandria – and numerous other unmissable sites. Visit the famous Tutankhamun’s tomb, built to commemorate the short life of the Pharaoh who died aged 19. The unique architecture of the country’s temples, tombs and pyramids make it a bucket list destination for sightseers as well as a hotspot for history buffs. 

Did you know: 

  • The Ancient Egyptians worshipped over 2,000 Gods.
  • They often referred to their pet cats as ‘miu’ (meow).
  • Women had unprecedented rights and freedoms.
  • They forged one of the earliest peace treaties on record.
  • Around 120 Egyptian pyramids have been discovered, but who knows how many more lay underneath your feet. 

Luxury resorts

There are many luxurious resorts in Egypt, particularly in the popular tourist areas of El Sheikh and Hurghada. These resorts are highly-rated because of the great amenities they offer their guests like fine-dining restaurants, soothing spas, private pools and beaches, watersports and guided tours. These resorts are able to seamlessly combine comfort and luxury with stunning scenery and top attractions, as well as remaining a great value destination. 

Year-round sunshine

One of the advantages Egypt has over other popular tourist destinations, like Europe, is its year-round sunshine. The weather remains largely warm and dry throughout the year, making it a perfect spot for winter holidays. So you can enjoy a swim in the Red Sea or sit back and relax on a beach in December. Maybe even enjoy a cocktail in the sun on a balmy January evening.

Egypt offers famous museums, bustling markets, exciting watersports, jeep safaris and deep-sea fishing making it the perfect holiday for multi-generational families to keep everyone entertained, from the young to the young at heart!
