With one of the oldest histories of any modern country, Egypt truly is "the gift of the Nile" as the rich, multicultural landscape gives way to the arid dessert in matter of steps.
Amongst the deserted beaches, and stunning coral reef's of the Red Sea, a tropical oasis awaits. Alternatively, take in the sites as you meander along the river that gave birth to this impressive nation with luxury Nile cruise.
Hot all year round, but scorching in the summer, Egypt's dessert climate offers cooler nights (as low as 9°C in winter) and hot, dry days (as high as 40°C in the middle of summer). Its limited rainfall occurs mainly during the winter months, but its certainly not something to worry about when deciding on the best time to visit.
Owing to current events, its worth checking the recommended travel status for your planned destination on the gov.uk website under foreign travel advice, to make sure its safe to visit.
From the Valley of the Kings and the mighty pyrmaids to the Egyptian museum, the waterside temples of Dendara or Edfu to the Nile Delta and the beaches of Sharm El Sheikh, there's so much to do and see in Egypt so start packing and book your next trip now.
