Egypt: an acquaintance with secrets

Beach vacations, diving, windsurfing, sightseeing tours – Egypt offers tourists a huge range of options to enjoy your vacation. This country in the North-Eastern part of Africa is happy to introduce the most curious of visitors to the secrets of its history, which its architectural monuments have preserved for centuries.

The most popular places for beach lovers are the resorts of Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh. The swimming season never stops here, even in winter, just like the hotel life, full of its bright holidays, great offers and promotions. The beaches of Hurghada are sandy, with a flat bottom, and at Sharm El Sheikh they mostly coral. Therefore, some tourists prefer a quiet rest first, and the others – active sports.

The most popular time to visit Egypt is autumn, when the weather is much more comfortable. This period is also great for discovering the secrets of the history of Egypt. Your guide to the country will definitely invite tourists to visit the ancient cities, because if you pay attention to the map, all the main places of interest are quite far from the resort centres. The most famous pyramid is 137 metres high – Cheops (Khufu) pyramid – in Giza, the citadel of Saladin of Cairo, the Alley of the Sphinxes and the Karnak Temple in Luxor. When travelling between cities, tourists choose from an array of transport – from local airlines to public buses and ferries.
